  • Review, Refresh, Return - new employment service for women in Scotland launches

    Created: 14/02/2022, Updated: 15/02/2022

    A new service offering free support for women looking to return to work, or improve their work skills, has launched across Scotland. The Review: Refresh: Return programme offers tailor-made services for women aged 25 and over who have been unemployed for six months or more.


    Support is provided in one-to-one or group sessions, online and in person, helping women to determine their next step back to employment and taking it.  Specialist advisors from Triage, a Scottish-based employment and skills organisation operating across the country, provide support.

    Services are free to participants, fully-funded by Skills Development Scotland as part of its country-wide Women Returners Programme.


    Emphasis is placed on navigating caring responsibilities and back-to-work anxiety, while facilitating women to return to responsible, good work, or move further towards it.  Activities include reviewing skills and work experience; refreshing CVs, interview technique, industry and IT knowledge; and exploring opportunities to return to work or access further education.


    The service works with women at all different stages of their working lives. Triage is particularly interested in contact from women with disabilities or health conditions; from minority backgrounds; aged over 50; lone parents; from veteran families; those experiencing conflict at home; and women living in rural areas struggling to access employment.
