  • Sharpen your skills in a work environment that may have changed since your last experience as an employee
  • Explore a new area of expertise and learn new skills
  • Assess whether transitioning back into the workforce full-time is right for you, and have opportunities for full time positions based on performance and suitable roles

Eligibility: Previously employed professionals who have been out of the workforce for two or more years and are looking to return. 

Anecdotes from former Returnship participants

“The Returnship program accelerated my relaunch—I didn’t have to explain the years that I was out of the workforce or how I fit into the organization. I was able to assess my fit in my department of choice before making a long-term commitment, and most importantly, it offered me the opportunity to do challenging work with people that I like and respect and who appreciate that I bring valuable experience to the table.”

“Being part of a structured program like this provides a supportive environment for what can be a difficult transition. The program provided sessions to refresh skills such as computing and capital markets knowledge, as well as bringing in senior leaders from around the firm to help us learn about the unique culture of the firm.”
