About Women Returners

Women Returners is a consulting, coaching and network organisation working with employers across sectors to access, support and retain returning professionals. We pioneered the introduction of returnships into the UK and have led the rapid growth of the returner programme market in England. We have partnered with many leading employers including EY, O2, Skanska, Fidelity International, Virgin Media, M&G Investments, The Cabinet Office and The Home Office. We also run a free network for over 4,000 returning professional women.

As the UK experts, we frequently provide expert commentary on women returners and returnships in national media (e.g. BBC R4 Woman’s Hour, The Scotsman, The Sunday Times, The Guardian), at Government/public forums (e.g. APPG Women and Work) and at industry association events (e.g. Scottish Investment Operations, Women’s Engineering Society, ICAEW). We have recently co-written best practice employer guidance on returner programmes for the UK Government.


The programme is now full. Please email hazel@womenreturners.com for information on future programmes.
