Events: Calling Manchester career breakers

Join us at the Manchester Metropolitan University Business School on 18 October for a free half-day workshop for career breakers.

This event aims to showcase some of the career break opportunities available at Manchester Metropolitan University Business School, with a real view insight into individuals who have already taken advantage of these opportunities.

Manchester Met Business School is keen to support the individuals during their career break in order to maintain confidence and achievement of continued professional development. There are various ways that women can work with the business school including as associate lecturers, guest speakers and workshop facilitators.

Opportunities are available to deliver professional papers e.g. ACCA and Undergraduate or Postgraduate tutorials across a range of subject areas. In addition, the Centre of Enterprise require skilled practitioners to facilitate workshops on their short courses supporting SMEs. This session will outline the flexible opportunities available and support available to those who want to take these up.

We appreciate that returning to work after a career break can be a daunting experience. Meg Burton will lead a session on how to mentally prepare yourself for your return to work, providing you with techniques to improve your confidence and outlook in order to take advantage of these opportunities.

There will be time to hear from Jo Peters - Jo took a 5 year career break from the corporate world, during which she set up a commercial artisan bakery, moved continents and had 2 little boys. Prior to this she had worked with a big 4 firm as an Associate Director in their consulting team. About a 18 months ago she decided that the time was right to return to a corporate career. She will talk about this journey and how she worked with a career coach from CABA to plan a new career that allows her to use her skills and experience whilst maintaining flexibility around family, business and voluntary commitments.

Why not come along and hear all about an opportunity which might just be too good to miss! Networking lunch will be provided.
