‘Training’ is one of the key areas of opportunity that JCI offers as well as with ‘business’, ‘community’, ‘international’ and ‘social’.  It’s the role of the JCI UK Training Director to help lead and develop the national training strategy as part of the 2019 National Team.

This role would suit somebody who has a real interest and enthusiasm for personal development and helping our members learn new skills and knowledge that will be relevant to them within JCI and outside of JCI, such as in the workplace.  Ideally this would be somebody who has training experience.

Over the last few years, JCI UK has developed and regularly run a suite of training academies (Public Speaking, Training, Marketing and Leadership ‘LEAP’) that have been well received and valued by members and indeed non-members who have graduated from them.  For example, a high proportion of LEAP graduates then go on to take up leadership roles on their local council teams or on National Board.

One of the great things about JCI is that we offer the chance to try out the skills learned and developed through our training courses by getting involved in local or national projects.
