Bank of England Career Returners Programme
The Bank of England is partnering with Women Returners to co-host a launch event for their first Career Returners programme, for professionals looking to return to work after an extended career break. The Bank is committed to having a diverse and inclusive work environment and they value the experience and knowledge that a career returner brings to the workplace.
The event will be held on Wednesday 18 April 2018 at the Bank of England offices in Moorgate, London. Join us for a morning of speaker sessions and informal networking, to learn about life at the Bank and to find out more about the Career Returners programme. You will also benefit from a Women Returners coaching workshop on preparing for your return to work.
