A highly successful pilot programme aimed at reintroducing experienced women to tech jobs after career breaks is expanding nationally and looking for new recruits. The programmes will commence in Dublin and Cork this Autumn.
Women Reboot aims to get so-called ‘returners’ back into full-time roles, through a mix of coaching, online learning, networking skills and work placements in leading tech companies.
Software Skillnet believes that women who are qualified and experienced in the sector – who may have stepped out on a career break to raise families or for other reasons – can create a new pool of talent for companies. With a little support and upskilling, they could be just what tech companies are looking for.
Up to 50 free places are now open for applications from women interested in returning to work in the technology sector.
Previous participants came from backgrounds in project management, software development, QA roles, testing, UX/UI design, data analytics and technical writing.
