Before joining Skanska, she took a six-year break to raise her young children. During this time she completed an MBA and the CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) examinations, in order to progress her career in anticipation of her return to work.
“I've been in the UK for three years and recently came across Women Returners, an initiative that caters for people like me who have taken a career break but are determined to re-establish their professional identity. Skanska looked like the kind of place that valued broad experience and where I could apply my skills.
“I joined Skanska’s Return to work programme in September and after three months became a permanent employee. Through the programme I received a personalised introduction to the company as well as access to coaching which really helped me transition back to work.”
