Trade Associations & Professional Bodies have a unique role to play within the UK economy as they champion their members’ interests in a rapidly changing commercial landscape. And although they come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, many professional organisations share common challenges as they seek new ways to engage members, energize relationships and influence policy.
Faced with such diverse operational objectives, associations and professional bodies usually have very specific requirements in terms of the skills, assets and experience they seek in potential candidates for senior leadership roles. They need to recruit executives who can balance competing interests within their organisations, who can manage technological change, and who can seamlessly switch from member engagement to political lobbying. They need passionate advocates with outstanding communication skills, well-honed commercial acumen and a pragmatic approach to achieving objectives.
