DMJ Recruitment, in association with The Chartered Governance Institute, initiated the first Governance Insight Days programme in 2016 in an effort to grow and cultivate the profile of the company secretarial profession amongst students and graduates. One could view DMJ as gardeners attempting to provide the governance profession and young governance enthusiasts with the opportunities they need to flourish.
“I had a brilliant day; it was extremely useful and provided me with a wealth of information and enabled me to compare the role within different sectors and the work culture which otherwise I wouldn’t have had this opportunity to explore. Thank you DMJ for organising.”
Insight Days Attendee – 2019
Unfortunately, last season didn’t offer the proper growing conditions due to the pandemic and subsequent lockdown however, we have adapted. Our new format offers the same great experience in a convenient and safe environment. Attendees will still meet top-level members of their host organisation, experience common governance scenarios and have the opportunity to network with like-minded professionals. We’re offering a safer and more regulated environment akin to a grower’s greenhouse that allows young governance professionals to bloom regardless of outside conditions.
The UK is widely recognised as the leader in corporate governance and rightly so. It is extremely important to set corporate governance reforms to ensure our largest companies are more transparent and accountable to their employees and shareholders. This will help UK companies draw inward investments and unlock growth and prosperity across the entire UK. Considering the events of the past year, the importance of the governance profession going forward cannot be underestimated and our Insight Days graduates have the opportunity to be at the forefront of these important events.
Insight Days have already inspired 400 students and graduates to secure their first role or embark on the ICSA qualification. These seedlings have grown into the roots of the modern governance profession in the UK. We are thrilled to announce the confirmed hosts for 2021 include BBC Studios, Network Rail, Coca-Cola European Partners, Santander, HSBC and more. Click here to view all host information. The importance of the governance role has increased substantially over the past few years and this initiative and companies that participate are a big reason why.
