Loraine Ladlow is a qualified lawyer and barrister who has extensive experience as a leader and decision maker in the sports industry and legal and regulatory sectors. Previously working with the HM Courts Services and the HM Courts and Tribunals Service, she is currently involved with several organisations including the Football Association and the Judicial Appeals Commission.
In this podcast, Loraine talks about why she took the decision to leave her senior leadership role with a large corporate organisation and take ten months out to travel, how she decided what she wanted to do on her return and how her voluntary work at the Football Association led to her starting a paid portfolio role with them.
Loraine discusses the ways work has changed to adapt to personal circumstances and the considerations around how we will need to think differently to manage the longevity of work through career breaks and part-time and flexible working options. She also talks about planning and preparing to make a career change, the benefits of taking on voluntary work to expand your experience and CV and of being flexible in exploring new and different opportunities.
