For aspiring Directors, what are some obstacles to your progression and how are they overcome?
Over the last couple of years, Allen Lane has been working alongside a number of sectors to help identify the issues/ blockers to people making the step up in to their breakthrough Director level appointment. In particular, I have been working with local councils and the organisations that support them, like the LGA, to look at ways these are negated.
Firstly, this is not an exhaustive list, it is just based on some of the challenges I have seen people face and feedback I have received from clients during my recruitment career. Secondly most of this feedback has been within the public sector, and I realise other sectors will bring their own challenges.
