CO3's Chief Executive, Nora Smith reacts to the 2021 Budget. 

It is positive that the furlough scheme has been extended to September, which will provide relief to a wide range of charities however CO3 and a wide range of other charities have called for an amendment to the furlough scheme, which would allow vital services to be continued.

Now, more than ever, Third Sector chief executives need a strong support network of senior managers to help address the leadership challenges organisations face.

Succession planning and investing in the next generation of chief executives is also vital if the sector is to thrive.

Charities exist to create a better society. They operate for many different purposes, and in many ways. Trusteeship is hugely rewarding, as well as providing opportunities for personal development.

Change comes in many forms, and can affect every part of our lives. We can experience transitions in work and our relationships, as well as our personal lives. Sometimes we know a change will occur and sometimes change happens suddenly and unexpectedly. Many people spend a great deal of effort trying to avoid change, but the situation surrounding COVID-19 has meant we have had to adjust how we spend our day to day lives in order to save the lives of others.

Appointed with the help of CO3's recruitment service, Engage, Northern Ireland National Director of Diabetes UK, Tina McCrossan was barely into post when Covid-19 hit in early 2020.  Here she tells CO3's members about how a focus on planning and communications kept her new team on point.

Interim Executive Training

Interim Executive Training prepares individuals to work with a Third Sector organisation on a short term basis, helping organisations to either manage a gap in permanent leadership and/or to provide additional support to a Chief Executive and the Senior Management team in times of need.

The bespoke training programme is available to Executives who have built up extensive experience working at a Senior Management level.   We are looking for people who demonstrate strong leadership, management, organisational development experience and the ability to analyse and effectively deal with organisational challenges.

CO3 have developed this training programme in partnership with the Support Center for Nonprofit Management in New York.

Now Recruiting for the CO3 Mentoring Programme 2021!

For over 15 years the CO3 Mentoring Programme has been enabling members to benefit from the experience and knowledge of their peers, either from within the third sector or from the public and private sectors. So if you are thinking of making a positive change in your working life then why not come along and find out how you can get involved.

What is Mentoring?

Mentoring is a highly successful leadership development tool because it is tailor-made to suit the individual.  The Mentee (person being mentored) is able to discuss issues/experiences in a safe and confidential environment.  The Mentor can share experience and best practice and provides a sounding board to the Mentee. At CO3, we know that by participating in the programme the leadership capacity of both the Mentor and Mentee is enhanced. 

When will it start?

The formal Mentoring Programme starts in April each year and runs for a full year. We will be holding a virtual Introduction to Mentoring on 10th March 2021. Details to follow.
