Women Returners Scotland

Latest News

August 2017: We have been selected by the Scottish Government for funding to provide a programme of 40 returnships in the financial services sector, based in Edinburgh and Glasgow (read more here). If you’re interested in returning to work in this sector, watch this space for more updates and make sure you’re signed up to our Professional Network so we can contact you directly about the programme.

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.

Diana Dawson and Hazel Little are your lead coaches and they have many inspiring stories to share with you.

We also provide an access point for Scotland-based employers wishing to hire returning professionals and are working to create supported routes back to work for returners.
