Are we talking about you?

  • You would like to return to work. But you’re hesitant. Where do you start?
  • You would love to change careers. But you’re a bit lost. What else could you try?
  • You think starting your own business sounds exciting. But it’s what other people do – not you.
  • You would like to get some more qualifications. But how can you combine study with looking after a family?
  • You wouldn’t mind training as an electrician. But that’s a job for a man, isn’t it?
Sounds like you? Then welcome to the WRN (the Women Returners’ Network). You’ve come to the right place.

How can we help?

WRN is a completely independent, charitable organisation. Our purpose is to provide practical assistance to help women return to work. On this website you will find information and exercises to help you:
  • Restore sagging confidence. Find out what breaks confidence and what boosts it
