The Career Shapers development programme will be delivered from May 2022 and is aimed at Band 2-4 finance staff who are looking to progress into different or more senior roles in the near future.

Objectives of the programme include:

  • Exploring different career routes
  • Understanding the business and finance’s impact on patient care
  • Planning for career progression
  • Growing your professional network
  • Benefitting from sponsorship and mentoring

The programme focuses on developing non-technical skills and provides a safe space for participants to be open about their experiences and current situation, whilst sharing and giving feedback to others. The programme is a fantastic opportunity for participants to widen their knowledge and experience in the areas they want to develop and in meeting like-minded colleagues from across the country.

Applications will be submitted via an online form where you will be expected to provide a short personal statement (no more than 500 words) about who you are, your story so far, and where you want to get to in your career – specifying why this programme may help you to do this.

Apply by 5pm Monday 7 March 2022 for this year’s cohort.

Delivery of the programme:

The programme will be delivered via online modules and a 1-day in person networking and development focused event day from May-July 2022, through a variety of training and development sessions that are interactive, discussion-led, and delivered in peer groups.
