Emerging Leaders Programme Application Form

Developing property's
talent pipeline

As part of DevelopU (Property Council’s new professional development academy), we have built upon our original offering and crafted a highly personalised year-long leadership development experience. 

This 12-month programme will include an immersive in-person kick-off, three ‘lunch n learn’ seminars that cover a range of leadership and development topics, as well as pairing with an experienced industry leader who will serve as your mentor throughout the year.

Our aim is to enable mentors with strong leadership, management and diverse industry experience to pass on their knowledge to those at the beginning of their property career.

Emerging Leaders will have the opportunity to develop new skills and enhance career development, while mentors will gain fresh perspectives from emerging talent and access greater diversity of thought by staying in touch with issues relevant to industry growth.

Please note the Emerging Leaders Programme is only open to employees of Property Council New Zealand member companies. If you are unsure if your company is a member, please contact Membership & Sponsorship Manager, Kayne Franich.

We’re looking for experienced leaders and up-and-coming stars – we’re looking for you!

Notes for applicants

Please note, an application for the Property Council Emerging Leaders Programme is not a guarantee of placement as spaces are limited. Applications will close at midday on 1 August 2023, and all applicants will be advised of the selection decision by 19 August 2023.

  • The programme is priced at $495 + GST. This fee is only charged to Emerging Leaders upon successful application.

  • There is no charge for mentors to participate in the programme.

  • Being accepted into the programme as an Emerging Leader is a great achievement, but with this comes an expectation of time commitment and personal responsibility. In addition to participating in the weekly Hono online discussion, Emerging Leaders will be expected to actively participate in at least one, one-hour (ideally face-to-face) meeting per month with their paired mentor. 

  • Both Emerging Leaders and mentors need to commit to the programme and be comfortable communicating with each other.

  • Further to the monthly time commitment, Emerging Leaders will also be required to attend the programme kick-off from 8 am – 4 pm on 29 August in Auckland (online available for participants outside of Auckland, however, we strongly recommend attending in-person). 

  • Mentors will be required to attend the online training session scheduled for 8 – 10 am on Thursday 24 August.

  • Both Emerging Leaders and mentors will receive touch-point communications from Property Council throughout the course of the programme to gauge your satisfaction, address any issues and guide you through the process.
