Leading On - Preparation for Senior Leadership Interview and Selection (Part 1)

This six-part webinar series will focus on supporting colleagues who are preparing to apply for their first senior leadership position.

This webinar is the first in a six-part series which culminates in November, perfectly positioning candidates to prepare for applying for senior leadership posts commencing in September 2021.

Part 1 of this series focuses on creating and submitting a letter of application. This is an integral part of the process and arguably the most important, since shortlisting a field of candidates to invite to interview is reliant on an effective letter of application.

This interactive webinar will cover content, structure, and tone, whilst at the same time explore the most common mistakes that lead to unsuccessful applications at this stage.

This session provides a foundation for five further webinars focusing on preparing to apply for a senior leadership post.

Find out more about the other parts of this series: 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.

If you cannot attend live you will receive a copy of the recording, links to any resources discussed, and the opportunity to submit questions.
