What Happens Next?
Once you have decided that you want to find out more about becoming a Green Hat People Area Developer the first thing that you will need to do will be to contact us to arrange a telephone conversation prior to attending any meeting or Discovery Day with Green Hat People.
During that conversation we will be looking to gather some information from you in order to prepare you and Green Hat People for any initial meeting. We will be asking you for information about your background, business experience and also an idea of your financial situation just to make sure that your are able to fully invest and fund the development of the Green Hat People business.
CV and Personal Information Memorandum
As part of the process of finding the right Area Developers, we will ask you for some personal information. This is usually after any initial telephone conversation and before any attendance at a meeting or Discovery Day.
We will ask for a CV and we do send an online Personal Information Memorandum (or application form) which we would like you to complete in as much detail as you feel comfortable with. These are important to us in starting to build a great future business relationship, as we get to talk about YOU and how your experiences and plans could make you our perfect Area Developer.
Discovery Days / Initial Meetings
These will be held in the UK. The Discovery Days will be events where you can find out more about the events themselves in action and we will only be running a few throughout the year.
