A word from a successful candidate

“Having become more and more aware of “returnships” I recognised this could be a good way to restart my professional career. I have been on a career break for over ten years and the time was right for me to return to work. I realised that I really wanted to use my skills and experience in the commercial business environment and work with high performing teams again.

The EY Reconnect programme was advertised on 2to3days at just the right time. It offered an opportunity to return to management consultancy within a supportive framework where I could refresh my skills over a 12 week period. I spent time updating my CV and Linkedin profile and this gave me the confidence that I have a current and valuable skill set even after a long career break.”
