How will you benefit from the event?

The launch event will provide you with the opportunity to find out more about how you will be supported back to professional level employment within the Savings and Investment sector:

Who is the event for?

The event is targeted at experienced professionals who have had an extended career break of at least 18 months (as at April 2020), who are looking to return to work within the Savings and Investment sector, and who are interested in applying for the returnship. You may have taken time out to look after children or elderly/sick relatives, for relocation, for a personal health issue or for other reasons. You may have been working on a small-scale basis to fit around your other commitments or have not done any paid work for a number of years.
