Organised by Odgers Berndtson, it provides mid-Year students the opportunity to spend a day shadowing a successful CEO. As an undergraduate, you apply to spend the day with a top Chief Executive and learn about the responsibility and complexities required to lead some of Britain’s leading business and organisations. This is how this scheme is designed to uncover some of the UK’s most promising future leaders and give them an opportunity to walk in the shoes of a senior executive.
Happening for the first time in the UK in 2016 with 15 students, CEOx1 Day welcomed the participation of big companies and organisations such as BT, ITV, Standard Chartered, Deloitte, Legal & General, The Cabinet Office and the National Trust. Following the pilot edition, it was regarded as an eye-opening programme by both the students and the professionals. Apart from the immediate benefits of sharing the office with a CEO, tagging along at meetings and official work visits, there are the not-so-obvious advantages:
gain insight into how successful people operate;
get catapulted in at the last level of administration and get a better view of the long road leading there;
understand management, the priorities and duties which come with it;
learn more about a specific industry from a top position;
gain relevant experience to succeed in your potential career.
The former participants left the scheme more knowledgeable about what being a CEO involves, feeling the real taste of success and responsibility and hoping to become suitable for such a role in the future. You can read their opinions to find out how this sort of experience may change you.
Now, do you want to share the tasks of a CEO, his office and one-day’s schedule? Do you have what it takes to do this? Create your professional profile with the help of the Careers consultants and apply for the amazing experience until June 30.
