No Spring Chickens - Launching a New Bank

For Leaders in Portfolio Careers
Staying engaged with the business and wider community

Our Next Circle (ONC) is the Circle’s latest platform for Leaders and Directors who have moved or transitioned from full-time employment into a Portfolio Career.
The objective is to build a forum that offers shared experiences, ideas and knowledge transfer for those who wish to stay engaged in the business and wider community.
ONC has been developed to share professional opportunities such as directorships, consulting and short-term projects; provide continuous learning; and offer opportunities to ‘give back’.
