Returning Talent Programme Chester

Applications are now closed

Applications are open for Bank of America Merrill Lynch’s inaugural Returning Talent programme in Chester, England. The programme aims to help bridge the gap for people re-entering the workforce, such as a stay-at-home parent, a carer or someone who took a career break to support a partner in the armed forces. Bank of America Merrill Lynch is looking to attract individuals from a range of backgrounds including finance, technology, banking operations and other professional services.
 People who have been out of work for a year or more are invited to apply via the company’s careers site by 15 August 2016.

Following the success of the London offering, the 2016 Chester programme will give 25 participants the opportunity to attend a two-day conference (27 and 28 September) aimed at exploring the changing workplace and the role of the returner in this new office environment. Participants will hear from guest speakers and participate in a series of workshops designed to support a transition back to work; offer practical guidance on focusing and managing a career search; provide interview skills sessions and insights into balancing work and home lives; and access to executive coaching. There will also be opportunities for participants to start building their professional connections through a series of networking opportunities with bank employees.

Steve Miller, head of Chester site, global head of FX Operations and Returning Talent Chester executive sponsor at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, said: “I am very excited to see the expansion of the Returning Talent programme to Chester. This builds on its great success in London and is a fantastic opportunity for anyone looking to re-enter the workplace. We know there is enormous untapped talent in the returner population, and we think this matches very well with the expanding opportunities at Bank of America Merrill Lynch in Chester.”
