St Helena Government has today launched its exciting new Future Leaders Programme.

This fast-track Leadership Programme is a high quality and challenging initiative to identify and develop future leaders in SHG.

Targeted at middle managers or those on Grades ‘C’ and ‘D’, it is designed to develop a pool of ambitious, career minded people to fast-track into future leadership positions. The programme will target different cohorts over a period of time.

Staff enrolled on the programme will develop their career and aspire to lead and positively influence the output of SHG.

Chief Secretary, Roy Burke, said:

“This new and innovative style of programme aims to create a continuously developing organisation that is committed to the development and progression of our people.”

Staff enrolled in the programme will receive:

  • An increase in salary as soon as they are accepted onto the programme and a further increase if they successfully pass a six month probation period
  • Tailor made training and development programmes to prepare them for future promotion
  • The prospect of working in a variety of settings across SHG
  • A chance to learn from others at SHG
  • The opportunity to be part of a group of like-minded colleagues who are keen to support local development

Interested staff are encouraged to talk to their Line Manager or Director, or the Chief Secretary (Designate) Susan O’Bey, on tel: 22470 or via email:
