Accelerate to Leadership

Are you a BAME member of professional services staff looking to progress your career into senior leadership at grades 8, 9 and 10?

At UCL, we have a wealth of BAME talent, but still lack diversity in our senior roles. That’s why we’ve decided to launch this programme to support existing BAME staff to accelerate into leadership positions at UCL.

This unique and innovative scheme aims to foster, recognise and nurture the leadership potential of our BAME professional services staff and help you to achieve your ambitions. You can gain vital leadership experience through a 3–12 month paid internal work placement, that can assist in developing the skills, capability and confidence to compete for more senior roles when they arise.
