For those returning to the workforce – regain your confidence  

This is designed for both women and men who are returning to the workforce after a period of being at home looking after children.

Our experience in working in this area is that, whether the reason for returning is career or financially driven, individuals can find this step daunting.

It is not uncommon to feel a loss of confidence as result of being away for a period of time.  Thoughts and feelings may include being out of touch or behind in skill level, or even questioning whether their skills are still relevant.  Some may start to question whether they will fit in and adapt to a workplace environment while juggling their responsibilities at home.   Added to this is, after having a period away from work, they may question if their work interests remain as they were.

There are some who have been out of the workforce for several years and these individuals may struggle at the prospect of going back to work and how to best go about it.  They may be asking questions such as:

It is amazing how assessing your situation and creating a plan can answer some of those questions, begin to remove barriers and put you on the path to returning to work more confidently.  A career re-entry strategy will assist you in transitioning your thinking and you will begin gathering your confidence.  We will assist you where required to:

A successful return to work doesn’t need to be daunting and doesn’t need to be done on your own. Like parenting, it will take time, effort, patience and at times a bit of help just to ensure you are on the right track. And, the results can be very rewarding.

Coaching:  Is on an hourly basis with the number of hours dependent on individual requirements.
