The Back2Businessship programme was founded three years ago by ex-Starcom Mediavest HR director Liz Nottingham and f1 recruitment’s Amanda Fone after they recognised talented, experienced women were struggling to re-enter the workplace after having a break, usually to look after children. Golin has partnered with them for the last two years.
The programme includes a combination of confidence-building sessions, inspirational speakers and the latest practical job hunting skills. Course modules include career planning, changes in the world of work you left behind (including digital and social media), how to attack the jobs market and apply for roles, how to find the flexibility you need and how to manage your first 90 days back in the workplace.
Expect a range of coaching and training sessions led by industry professionals, as well as case studies and presentations by inspirational women who have returned to the workplace successfully. Golin will be offering a paid placement to one delegate from January 2017 to help bridge the way back to work and we aim to find more placements at other companies.
