Deciding if the Fellowship is right for you

Posted on May 18, 2015

The opportunity to apply for a Clore Social Fellowship is one not to miss. If you have at least five years experience or more working in the third sector with charities, social enterprises, or housing associations this could be for you. Do you have a passion to make a difference for individuals and communities by overcoming social injustice, reaching unmet need and driving for change? 

Have you shown some leadership potential in the work and volunteering you have done so far? Would you like to have access to an individualised programme of leadership development? And is this the right time for you to have the time and space to commit to do this? Do the values of Clore Social resonate for you – courage, passion, diversity, respect and focus?

If yes to all these questions then you should consider applying. We have welcomed applicants from across the UK and valued the learning there has been amongst all the Fellows as experiences and challenges have been shared. We learn from everyone’s journey. So do make good use of the website to learn more about Clore Social, the journeys of some of the other existing 101 Fellows and advice on completing an application.

You will be asked through the application process to really reflect about yourself, your strengths and your areas for development. Over the last six years I have met nearly 300 candidates and given feedback to others who did not get through to the interview stage. They have all said that the working through and completing the application was a positive developmental experience in itself, demanding though it needs to be to do this.

I hope you will find considering our approach to leadership a constructive challenge. As we repeat regularly through the Fellowship it is good to really know yourself, to feel confident to be yourself and to make sure you look after yourself.

We look forward to hearing more from you through your application. Good luck!

Have your say!
