Are you ready to continue your career?
Whether you’ve been exploring the world, spending time with family, or have taken an extended break for any other reason, Old Mutual Wealth’s Returners Programme could be right for you. Old Mutual Wealth, a leading wealth management business in the UK, is partnering with Women Returners to find and support talented professionals who have taken a career break of two or more years.

- Tailored coaching sessions from Women Returners during your first few months in the role
- Technical skills training (specific to your role)
- Soft skills training
- Updates on business and regulatory changes in the financial services industry
- Networking opportunities to help you develop new relationships and broaden your professional network.
