Returning to work and returnships

Returnships and helping women return to work after taking a career break has been at the forefront of careers advice in 2018.

Whether you are a maternity returner or someone who has taken a career break, there are now a myriad of options which will enable you to return to work. These programmes include training, a chance to refresh skills and meet other women who are in a similar position.

We have a dedicated page for all our returnship programmes, flexible working advice and advice on returning to work.
