Circl Leadership Training: Expression of Interest Form

Register your interest in the Circl Leadership Programme!

The Circl Leadership Training Programme gives under-represented 18-26 year olds the opportunity to learn vital leadership and coaching skills alongside professionals from top businesses such as Google, Facebook, Mckinsey, CBRE, British Land, Ebay, Hello Fresh, Allen & Overy and Zurich Insurance.

We want to support young people whose background would traditionally be a limiting factor in them becoming a leader. This means primarily we look for those with household income below average or are/were on free school meals (or the equivalent in your country). We do take other factors into consideration which can include first-gen to go to university, single parent family, disability, etc - please ensure you meet the primary criteria to be eligible for this programme.

You'll be matched 1 to 1 with a manager, and together you'll go through our virtual training programme (conducted over zoom) to learn how to be an effective leader. You'll be treated as equals, and at the end you'll get the same management level certification (it's worth over £1000, but completely free for you!)
