Career Progression for Parents
Leaders Plus is a social enterprise working with individuals during maternity leave, shared parental leave, and beyond to progress in their careers whilst enjoying their young families. Too often parents feel they have to choose between being a good parent and a fulfilling leadership career. We exist to change this.
Our award-winning Fellowship Programmes support parents to progress in big careers whilst juggling small children.
Our Fellows have come from employers such as the BBC, NHS, HSBC, Action Tutoring, and the Salvation Army. We welcome applications from fathers and mothers.
You can find out more about the Fellowship by downloading our brochure which runs through how the programme works, who it helps and what you need to do to apply.
We have been selected by The Observer and Nesta as one of 50 New Radical organisations and our Founder, Verena Hefti MBE, has won the WeAreTheCity Rising Stars award for her work in setting up Leaders Plus.
In 2020 we were thrilled to be recognised as a Trailblazing Newcomer in the NatWest SE100, which highlights the UK's most outstanding newcomers in social enterprise. We are accredited by Social Enterprise UK and have been supported by the RSA (Royal Society for the Arts and Commerce).
