FiMT to support six Specialist Fellows on Clore Social’s 2019 Experienced Leader Programme

Clore Social Leadership has opened recruitment for its 2019 Experienced Leader Programme. The one-year programme, starting in February, is open to individuals with six or more years’ experience as a social sector leader and the Forces in Mind Trust (FiMT) has pledged support for six funded Specialist Fellowships.

The Experienced Leader Programme helps build social leadership capabilities, confidence, effectiveness, self-awareness, resilience and overall impact through working with others, and comprises a number of activities including executive coaching, action learning and a secondment.  The FiMT Fellowships aim to promote leadership within and connections between the military and social sectors, for those who have ambition to drive social change in their communities and organisations and have an interest in the Armed Forces Community.

Ray Lock CBE, Chief Executive of Forces in Mind Trust, said:

“We are delighted to continue the support for the Clore programme for Experienced Leaders that we began in 2015. This opportunity will further grow our cohort of some 10 Clore FiMT specialist fellows, and we know will offer great benefits to the individuals involved and their respective organisations.  If we invest in the leaders of today we will increase the capability of the sector to make innovative and lasting change.”

Shaks Ghosh, Chief Executive of Clore Social Leadership said:

“The Armed Forces and Service Charities sector is a great example of like-minded organisations working together to address shared challenges by supporting and investing in their current and future leaders. We are delighted that the Forces in Mind Trust is supporting our 2019 Experienced Leader Programme and look forward to working with a new cohort of FiMT supported leaders over the next year.”
