Making Work Work – for Women Returners is the Challenges Group's award-winning women returners programme, co-designed and Programme Managed by Lynn Houmdi, Scotland's Flex Influencer 2022. We are delighted to have successfully won funding to support even more women in 2023 to make work work.  

 

The programme seeks women in Scotland looking to step back into the workplace and who face difficulties in finding work that fits with all the commitments and fun of life following a career break (e.g. for maternity, caring, health issues / disability, redundancy, relocation or other reasons).  

 

We are looking for women who have management experience or aspirations from across Scotland to take part in a peer-led skills refresher programme which will facilitate the confidence and networks essential to finding work commensurate with their skills, ambitions and potential.  

 

Don't worry if you have not had management experience - this will not exclude you from the programme. However, you need to be willing to learn about management and leadership skills - either for your next role or a future one.  

 

Participants also get support with their job search, personal development and designing their (work)life blend.
