Returners to Financial Services Scotland Programme

 

We’re delighted to have been awarded Scottish Government funding to develop and run the Returners to Financial Services Scotland Programme. This cross-company returnship programme will run in Edinburgh and Glasgow and will enable 40 experienced financial services professional women on an extended career break to get back into skilled employment. TSB and Prudential have already signed up to offer placements on the programme.

The Programme

The Returners to Financial Services Scotland Programme will run for 3 months, starting in the first quarter of 2018, with transition support provided and a possibility of ongoing employment at the end of the programme, if it is successful for both company and returner. The programme will be driven by the recruitment needs of the participating organisations. You will take on paid work using your professional skills, gaining recent and relevant CV experience. You will also receive support from an internal mentor and participate in a group returner coaching programme from Women Returners, with the additional benefit of peer support from other returning professional women.

Participating Companies
