Event Details

Are you a professional woman interested in returning to work after a long career break? Join Women Returners, the return to work specialists, for a motivational day packed with return-to-work advice, support and inspiration and the opportunity to meet informally with employers and other like-minded women.

The conference will be relevant to you whether your background is in finance, law, tech, engineering, marketing, retail, HR or any other professional area: whether your career break has been 2, 5 or 10+ years; and whether you’re at the first stage of your return-to-work journey or actively applying for roles.

Alongside workshops, panels and support sessions, you will have the opportunity to meet informally with a like-minded peer group and with our returner employer sponsors.

Our previous Conferences sold out well in advance.

Book now to get our Super Early Bird price of £80 (standard price £100), available until 27 January 2019, and to secure a 1:1 coaching session (limited availability).

“Brilliant, a belief shifting event. I arrived feeling a lot of too – too old, too out of touch, too long a gap, too unwanted and left with all of those reversed, brimming with possibilities.”
