Track Record: Peter Aiers
Peter Aiers is Chief Executive at the Churches Conservation Trust, and he has had a life-long interest in history and conservation. His organisation maintains over 300 historic places of worship and he manages 80 people and a multi million pound fundraising pot. He’s spent 12 years at the organisation and took over as CEO seven months ago. He’s always worked in conservation (apart from a stint working in a chippy!) and says it was refreshing being given ‘the push to make something happen and to prove myself’ when he was appointed the first conservation officer for the Church of England. He loves the outdoors, Manchester rock music and new challenges.

Track Record: Helen Brand
Helen Brand is Chief Executive of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, the global body for professional accountants – yet admits to not having trained in accountancy! She maintains that a career choice in the industry is a terrific grounding for any business. Her personal interests lie in politics and international relations. She enjoys travel, and is a supporter of gender diversity in business. Having spent time working in the children’s shoe department of a store, she says we shouldn’t shy away from jobs which might not necessarily boost a CV – because they can be career- and knowledge-enhancing all the same! Helen was awarded an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list in June 2011.

Track Record: Mark Wright
Mark Wright started early – his favourite anecdote is about charging his siblings to use the television in the family lounge! You’ll know him best as the winner of ‘The Apprentice’ in 2014 and he’s since started a digital business with Lord Sugar’s backing. He’s worked in sales and digital marketing in the past and is intending to expand his business, Climb Online, internationally this year. His big tip to secure a great position? “Never ask what the salary is”. Rather, show how good you are in the first few weeks so an employer can work out how valuable you’re going to be!
