The Boardroom Apprentice

Strictly Boardroom profiles board opportunities that exist in Northern Ireland, sometimes Ireland and occasionally Scotland, England and Wales.

As Strictly Boardroom highlights, having diverse skills and experience in our boardrooms has been rehearshed many times. The only way to achieve this is to have people from diverse backgrounds with a range of skills and experience applying. 

Strictly Boardroom concept works to identify the board opportunities that exist, giving those interested the opportunity to apply.  In recent years, it has also included the Boardroom Apprentice - a unique programme that provides training, experience and support to those who want to serve on Charity and Public Sector boards in Northern Ireland.  It has been running for 2 years and this year saw around 30 participants taking part in the programme.

As part of the 2018/2019 programme, Steven Lindsay, Director at CavanaghKelly, developed and delivered a day long training module called: 'It's all about the numbers'; along with Christine Burns from NI Audit Office.  The overall aim of the session was to help those attending to better understand financial concepts applicable to the charity and public sector and what to look out for as board members.
