STEM Returners is a multi-award winning solution to an industry wide problem.
We help employers access the very best available talent whilst improving their diversity & inclusion.
We want to implement radical change to aid diversity and inclusion within the STEM sectors. Operating within an incredibly skills short market, the programme allows employers to attract candidates from a new talent pool, and give candidates a supported route back to their career. Providing employers with talented professionals and helping them to view CV gaps in a different way.
Alongside the experience gained from the work placement, the STEM Returners project will also provide support for the candidate in advice, career coaching, networking opportunities and mentoring. All of the candidates going through the programme will also have the opportunity to restart their career in a permanent position at the end of the programme.
This project is co-supported by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology and the Women’s Engineering Society. We passionately believe that by providing a mechanism for motivated and experienced candidates to return to STEM, we will help to create the diverse, agile and innovative STEM workforce that the UK needs for today and forthe future.
