What it’s like being a returner at Computershare
Computershare ran a returners programme in 2018, here is Andrea’s story
“It’s been more than a year now since I started as a Test Analyst with Computershare through the Women Returners Scotland programme. When I look back, I’m really happy that I made a decision to come back to work after a career break of 8.5 years. Computershare is a great place to work and I really enjoy working with my team here. Each day comes with its own challenges, but I’m not alone. I feel supported and valued with opportunities for upskilling and bringing out the best in me. I’m glad to be a part of this great company where I can broaden my experience and actually make a difference.”
