Meet Steve

"Trying to get back into the workplace was a mixed experience in many ways. I was keen to challenge myself in a new industry but it was difficult to get recruitment consultants to put me forward for roles, even though I knew I was qualified for them. Many women take a career break after having children, and increasingly men are doing the same. I applied for the Relaunch your Career program at Mastercard, and secured a space. For me, the returnship program was great because Mastercard recognized the value of my experience regardless of my career break."
