About the programme:

As an employer of choice and recognised as one of The Times Top 50 Employers for Women, Bank of America Merrill Lynch is keen to ensure we attract, retain and develop talented individuals. We recognise that choosing to have a family is a very important stage in a woman’s life, and that some decide to take time away from work to focus on caring for their family. We also recognise that many men today may also take time away from work to care for their family, therefore this programme is open to both men and women.

We are offering 20 people who have been away from work for three or more years to stay at home and care for their family the opportunity to benefit from our Returning Talent programme.

The programme, which takes place over three days, offers practical guidance on CV writing and interview coaching, and features real-life experience from bank executives who themselves need to balance their work and home lives. At the end of the programme, it is anticipated that participants will feel better equipped and confident to re-enter the world of work.

There is no guarantee of employment with Bank of America Merrill Lynch at the end of the programme but we do hope that some of the programme Alumni will be successful in securing a role with our organisation, as and when a suitable position becomes available. We also hope that through the programme participants will gain employment with other firms.
