Applications are now closed

Bank of America Merrill Lynch is now welcoming applications for the eleventh Returning Talent programme in Europe. Individuals who have been out of work for 12 months or longer – for example, stay-at-home parents or carers, or someone who has chosen to take a career break – are invited to apply. The two-day conference which marks the company’s third Dublin programme will take place on 13 & 14 June 2019. Apply asap.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch is looking to attract individuals from a range of industry backgrounds, including professional and financial services and technology organisations, with experience in (but not limited to) finance, business, project or relationship management, risk, wholesale credit, banking operations and technology. The company plans to source suitable candidates from the programme to fill a select number of current and future positions in their Dublin-based teams.

25 attendees will be selected to attend a two-day workshop designed to support a transition back to work. Participants will hear from guest speakers and join a series of workshops designed to offer practical guidance on focusing and managing a career search, provide interview skills and insights into balancing work and home lives, and provide access to executive coaching. There will also be opportunities for participants to start expanding their professional connections through a series of networking sessions with bank employees.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch differentiates its offering in the market by moving away from the “returnship” model and instead placing the emphasis on providing participants with the requisite toolkit to re-ignite their careers, within any organization, including, but not limited to, Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

About Returning Talent

Seven years ago, Bank of America Merrill Lynch pioneered one of the first returner programmes for experienced professionals. Since then, the programme has expanded with sessions now running in Chester and Dublin. More than 500 people have taken part in this initiative, with many going on to secure roles at Bank of America Merrill Lynch or at other firms. The company’s progress in this area, as well as its ongoing commitment to develop female talent, won it the 2019 Catalyst Award for Accelerating Progress for Women in the Workplace, and the 2015 and 2017 Working Mums Top Employer Award for Career Progression. Building on this achievement, Bank of America Merrill Lynch was named the World’s Best Bank for Diversity & Inclusion in 2016 and 2018 in the Euromoney Awards for Excellence and has ranked on the Bloomberg Gender Equality Index for several consecutive years. In March 2017, the company further pledged its commitment to diversity by signing the HMT Women in Finance Charter.
