Alliance Group shareholders are now able to apply for the co-operative’s Associate Director programme.

Murray Taggart, Alliance Group chairman, says the role introduces shareholders interested in pursuing a governance career to the dynamics of the boardroom and broadens their understanding of the co-operative’s business.

“The successful candidate will see first-hand our work across multiple challenging and exciting markets and environments. They will also benefit from the significant depth and experience on our Board,” says Taggart.

“Ultimately, this programme aims to grow the pool of talent in the industry and offer a shareholder exposure to Alliance directors and management for networking, coaching and mentoring.”

Victoria Trayner, who recently completed the co-operative’s inaugural Associate Director role, says the position is an excellent opportunity to learn more about Alliance Group.

“The role offers unparalleled insight into one of New Zealand’s most unique businesses. I found myself being immersed in a higher-level of thinking and complexity of Alliance Group,” Trayner says.

“I have loved my time on the board and have enthusiasm and a passion to be a part of the future of the co-operative.”

The successful applicant will be appointed for a 12-month term. They will attend board and committee meetings and have access to induction and mentoring programmes.

Further information about the programme, including eligibility criteria and how to apply, is available on Alliance’s website.
