Whether planned or unplanned, returning to work after an extended period away can be daunting. If you’re feeling a little nervous and overwhelmed with the task ahead, this event is for you. WIBF are proud to have partnered with Women Returners, the return to work specialists, for a motivational day that will:

  • give you an opportunity to hear from employers about why they run returner programmes and what you can do to stand out as a candidate
  • help you find your career compass and become more focused on your career choices
  • facilitate discussion about what’s next including clarifying your aims, developing decision criteria and moving to action

Most importantly you will get to network with other women going through exactly the same thing.

This event is for women who have been on a career break longer than 6 months and who do not currently have a role to return to. It doesn’t matter if you’re at the first stage of your return-to-work journey or actively applying for roles, we’re here to offer our support.
