Returners programme

We have partnered with Women Returners to launch a 16-week paid Returners programme. The initiative is open to applicants with a financial services, accountancy or professional services background who were at manager level or above prior to a career break of 12 months or more.

Women Returners is a consulting, coaching and network organisation that focuses exclusively on enabling talented professionals to return to work after an extended career break. Forvis Mazars Returners programme is designed to provide opportunities to support this talent pool reignite their careers through mentoring and coaching alongside their placements. We are delighted to launch our Returners programme to help drive sustainable, flexible careers fit for modern workplaces. Forvis Mazars offers flexible working, part time, as well as full time opportunities, and the returners programme will give candidates the opportunity to balance lifestyle commitments as well as developing and progressing their career.

“I was completely daunted about returning to work after almost 10 years being away from a professional environment. However, my advice to those returning to the workplace would be to have confidence in yourself – the experience you gain out of a work environment is still valuable. Technology may be different, the people may be different – but these are all challenges you can overcome, and these are a piece of cake compared to juggling home life and learning about raising children (as was my case!)”

Miranda Smith - Professional Development Senior Manager

“It has been quite the journey to return to the professional services environment after a 4.5 year career break. It takes courage, self-belief, support and encouragement from those around you…everyone I have met so far at Forvis Mazars has been supportive and inclusive in making me feel welcome.”
