"How volunteering can support career progression"

The next Queen's Women's Network event will be the first online event to be held by the Network and also the first significant online event facilitated by the College. It is a departure from our normal get-together in person and will be hosted on Zoom.

The theme of this event is how volunteering can support career progression and we will initially focus on the skills and experiences of being a magistrate and then explore how these can support your career and beyond.

Jane Macaulay, ex Chair of the Surrey Bench will speak about her life and experiences as Chair of the Bench and Old Member Alison Sanders (PPE, 1979) will talk about volunteering during her varied career and reflect on her experiences as a new magistrate.

The speakers will be followed by discussion in smaller breakout groups where you can explore volunteering opportunities and share experiences of volunteering and the benefits they may give to your life and career. 

Jane Macaulay is currently a deputy Lord Lieutenant of Surrey and sits as a Lay Magistrate on the Surrey Bench. She was the Chair of the Bench for the last 9 years and prior to that spent 7 years chairing the training and development committee. In her working life Jane joined the Marks and Spencer Management training scheme and became HR manager in several stores before moving into Head Office as part of a small team rolling out the Food Only Concept.

Alison Sanders is recently retired from the post of Deputy Chief Executive and Director of Resources at Bracknell Forest Council. She has previously worked in London as a Lloyds insurance broker and as a primary school teacher before joining local government and Berkshire Education Authority. She subsequently became Assistant Director of Education at Bracknell Forest Council. She has worked voluntarily with difficult families and school governors, young people in arts and a wide range of local communities.

This event is open to all Old Members.
