WISE & Network Rail Transferable Skills Mentoring Programme 2021

WISE and Network Rail have just launched a brand-new Transferable Skills Mentoring Programme. This is a fantastic opportunity for mid-career women looking for a new challenge or those with a passion to find out more about what the rail industry can offer them.


12th May 2021. Aspiring directors and NEDs in the Financial Services sector need basic knowledge and understanding of the role, new NEDs need to have the essential tools and techniques to hit the ground running, whilst experienced directors and NEDs need to keep up to date, both technically and with the further development of some of the softer personal skills and director competencies.
