What is a Loaned Executive?
A Loaned Executive (LEX) is any employee from any Geelong business who is 'loaned' by his/her employer to Give Where You Live for a three month campaign. Following an initial three days of training, it is expected that the time commitment of these LEXs will be approximately 3-4 hours per week for 13 weeks.
The nominated employee can be from any department and from any level within the company. Previous LEXs have been mechanics, accountants, lawyers, production workers, knifehands, company directors - you name it.
LEXs are allocated a small number of companies, including their own. Their role is to work with these companies to develop strategies which will enhance Give Where You Live's profile within the workplace. This may include presentations to employee groups, updating posters/newsletters, etc. and thanking current contributors. These presentations provide an opportunity for others to participated in Workplace Giving.
Loaned Executives support Give Where You Live's campaign between July and September each year, with applications opening late May.
What can I expect as a Loaned Executive?
- A fantastic personal and professional experience
- A greater awareness of the pressing community needs in the Geelong region, specifically in the areas of health, income and education disadvantage
- A sense of achievement and pride in having done something very special for people in need
- Improvement in communication and presentation skills
- Opportunity to expand your professional networks within the Geelong community
