FEW Senior Membership consists of women at Senior Manager and Executive level – each level will sponsor the next level down in terms of experience and be supported by the next level up.
Senior Members must have the following background within the financial services industry:
- Minimum ten years plus experience in a senior relationship level position.
- State or National level with management responsibilities.
- GM or MD level, running a division or business.
- Leadership abilities and a passion for the industry.
- Desire to be a part of the Career Advocate Programme – be sponsored by a Career Advocate and to be a Career Advocate to the next level.
Senior Members are paired with an Advocate who has more experience than they do in the financial sector.
The Career Advocate Programme is designed to take members through a quarterly, structured advocacy process where they will receive experienced guidance and support.
Pairing with an appropriate Advocate could take a number of months. However, during this time each member will have access to a confidential forum, where questions can be asked of the entire Senior Membership base who will provide advice on a daily basis if needed.
Future Leaders are the rising stars of the Financial Services industry. Members at this level have access to an online forum to seek advice and guidance on a daily basis, if needed. Questions can be difficult to ask managers or colleagues. Future Leaders are encouraged to ask questions anonymously on the forum where Senior Members will guide and offer advice in a positive direction, every step of the way. Once Future Leaders gain ten years’ experience invitation into Senior Membership is offered.
Future Leaders have the following background:
- Minimum five years’ experience within the Financial Services industry.
- Leadership qualities and a passion for the industry.
- Willingness to progress to Senior Membership level – to be supported by an Advocate and become an Advocate in the future.
- All members agree to meet confidentiality guidelines and a code of ethics.
FEW will assist in career development by providing guidance, truth and honesty
