Sustainable careers for STEM returners

CategoryCompany News

STEM Returners are working with The Career Innovation Company to develop returnships into sustainable careers with the Be Bold in your Career online career development programme.

While returnship programmes offer a welcome step back on the ladder, some fear the returnship will be a short term trial. Returners can be uncertain how to seize this opportunity – and make it develop into a sustainable career. We’re delighted to be working in partnership with STEM Returners to address this concern by offering returners a place on the Be Bold in your Career online career development programme. Be Bold in your Career develops career management skills to re-instil career confidence, re-ignite passion for professions, and sustain the right career for the long term. As explained by a Returner Participant, Be Bold in your Career:

“Be Bold provides returners with a ‘holding hand’ to make a successful transition into new roles, helping them to gain clarity about what they want from a role and what they can give”

Natalie Desty, Founder of STEM Returners said:

We are delighted to be working with Be Bold. We are committed to ensuring our returners are supported and empowered to not only return to engineering, but also to develop their ongoing career with confidence and direction. Be Bold allows candidates to work through modules in their own time, remotely, which fits perfectly with the flexible opportunities that we aim to create.
