Case study - Resource Solutions Ignite Your Career Event

"The event attracted some really inspirational and experienced women… the women left feeling inspired, as did we. We met women from all different industries… the quality was amazing. We invited 9 of them to our own focus group where we found out about what Returners want and need from us and their employer. These Returners are now on our programme and we are hoping to place them into new careers."

Participant reactions

"I really enjoyed the Ignite your Career event - a fantastic opportunity to network with recruiters as well as fellow job-hunters to share tips on how to look for flexible working opportunities. Juliet's introduction gave me a much-needed confidence boost and reminder that our skills are in high demand. Thank you!"

"As a mother I’ve spent years juggling several part time jobs but now my children are older I can look for a role with a career future, but which offers flexibility to support family life. 2to3days offered the opportunity to find one and I met some great people who can help – other returners, recruiters and the inspirational Juliet. I’ve learnt that organisations are now looking for talent from all diverse groups and are prepared to actively support their needs"
