Bloomberg Returner Circles 2018

Bloomberg is excited to partner again with Women Returners to host their annual Women’s Returner Circles in London: an initiative to support and engage talented women who have experience in financial services and are looking to return to full-time roles after a career break.

Bloomberg is committed to developing a more diverse workforce and recognises both the value of returners and the challenges you can encounter in restarting your careers in suitable corporate roles.

In 2018, Bloomberg will host two separate circles: one for the Financial Products department and one for the Global Data Department.

Bloomberg is guided by four core values that are the foundation of their continued success: innovation, collaboration, customer service and doing the right thing. They harness the power of data and analytics to organise, understand and improve their world. It’s their purpose. Come and find yours.
