Women Returners Scotland
Following the success of our Returners to Financial Services Scotland programme which launched earlier this year, we have received additional Scottish Government funding from the Workplace Equality Fund to run a wider Business Services sector programme. This programme will start in November 2018 and will run for 16 weeks. More details can be found here.
We are delighted to be able to support returners in Scotland with advice, information and personal coaching support to help you to get back into a fulfilling role that fits with your life. We also provide an access point for Scotland-based employers wishing to hire returning professionals and are creating supported routes back to work for returners.
Hazel Little is our Edinburgh-based Coaching and Relationship Manager. She is currently project managing the Returners to Financial Services Scotland Programme.
