RETURN TO CONFIDENCE

For the last 25 years HRC Recruitment has been helping people make successful career moves. The Back in Business programme has been specifically designed to support career returners coming back into the workplace after a break.

We work with groups of professional candidates who have had a career break of one year or more. They attend a series of workshops to help address gaps in their skills and confidence and get them work ready. We believe that this is a win:win situation.

  • Candidates are provided with a supported route back into the workforce
  • Employers gain access to a new pool of talent
  • Companies can address diversity and inclusion and gender pay gap targets

In 2014 there were 3 returner programmes in the UK, as of 2019 there are 70 demonstrating the success of and need for this approach.

OUR BACKGROUND

HRC’s Head of Programmes Morna Ronnie was first introduced to the concept of returner programmes when working as an in-house Recruitment Manager and immediately saw how this could be a new pool of talent for the organisation.

From her work with candidates, she understands the challenges around taking a career break and the impact of loss of career direction and confidence for the individuals concerned.

Morna runs the Back in Business service to help employers address skills gaps and diversity & inclusion and gender pay gap targets and offers support to candidates to have a phased re-entry to the workplace.
