  • Making Work Work’ (for Women Returners to work)

    Created: 30/01/2022

    Making Work Work’ is an SDS funded, Scotland-wide programme for Women Returners. It’s open to women over 25 who have had a career break of 6 months or more and who have management or leadership experience or aspirations. The programme provides a refresher on management skills and support to rekindle confidence, develop new networks and understand the employment/business opportunities that are right for their level of skill and experience. An additional focus is around the confidence to ask for and secure flexible working and ‘make work work’ for them. The programme is online as the content is delivered using Teams and Zoom and it provides an opportunity for women to become familiar with new ways of working. In addition to the peer support and programme content, the programme provides individual mentorship, masterclasses, and access to a network of alumna.

    Recruitment is continuous and there are regular online information sessions (Fri 04 February 10:00 - 11:00, and Wed 26 February 10:00 - 11:00) - these can be booked via this webpage. 

    The latest programme flier can be found here.
