Tuesday 11 June 2024 at Burnley Football Club

Join us on a learning adventure!

North West Employers are excited to host the second North West Tri-Sector Challenge after the success of our first Tri-Sector Challenge 2023. The event is taking place at Burnley Football Club on Tuesday 11 June 2024. 

The challenge offers a fantastic opportunity for aspiring leaders to gain exposure to issues outside of their normal work giving them a taste of what senior management is really like. To successfully complete the challenge teams will have to work with neighbouring stakeholders and partners to deliver a new strategy for their organisation.

They’ll have to identify which areas to prioritise, deal with politically sensitive issues and maintain customer focus when determining how to provide the public with the best services possible despite limited resource. In a post pandemic world – we can all relate to how important simulation experiences can be to help prepare todays aspiring leaders for tomorrow’s unpredictable future.

Benefits of entering a team…

  • An opportunity to collaborate with and create lasting bonds with colleagues from across our sectors and services.
  • A rare opportunity to develop political acumen by working alongside real life elected officials in a highly pressurised environment.
  • Exposure to tasks and situations that senior managers face daily and some that luckily only occur occasionally!
  • An opportunity to put analytical and problem solving skills and tools to the test.
  • Exposure to intense time management constraints.
  • An opportunity to develop resilience to rapidly changing priorities, demands and timescales.
  • An opportunity to win the challenge and be crowned as Tri-Sector Challenge Champions

Each team will consist of 6 of your colleagues who have been identified as the next generation of aspiring leaders.

The cost per team is £1950 + VAT for members and £2500 + VAT for non-members.
