Around half a million professionals in the UK are currently on care-related career breaks, and the majority want to return to work. That’s far too many skilled individuals seeking to restart their careers but facing the challenge of getting noticed in a crowded job market when their CV has so-called ‘gaps’.
We know the value Returners bring to a business. Different ways of thinking are critical to solve the challenges we may face as a business and companies with diverse teams outperform those without them. Employing people from different backgrounds and making them feel included is a major driving force behind the existing success of our global company. In 2016 we became the first UK insurer to create a specific route to success for those who’ve taken care-related career breaks, and now have a growing internal Alumni group.
The programme is supported by bespoke coaching sessions from Women Returners, and you’ll be helped along in the transition by a business-based mentor and opportunities to network with other returners and the wider business.
