Programme: 4 month returnship with coaching support from Women Returners


Accenture recognises that even the most-talented professionals can find it challenging to return to work after taking a career break. That’s why Accenture is partnering with Women Returners to launch their third ReSUME Returners Programme, to support professionals back to the workplace. Accenture believe that introducing diverse talent will strengthen their business from both a delivery and client relationship perspective.
