Through membership of the Global Communications Alliance, we also offer colleagues the opportunity to participate in an international mentoring programme. One recent participant, Jade Bennett, explains more about how the GCA Mentoring programme works.
In addition to all the above, we run bespoke business-related programmes with our management and senior leadership teams, ensuring that we continue to grow the business, ourselves as a team, and our ambitions, purpose and values year on year.
