Strabane Women Returners Programme

Strabane Women Returners Programme works with employers and career returners to enable professionals to return to work after an extended career break.

This 15-week programme is an employability programme for women of all ages who have been out of the labour market for six months or more and want to restart their career journey. Those eligible may have been out of work or experienced a career break – through childcare, health or caring commitments. The programme will support their journey back into the labour market.

This programme is a potential route into employment with a placement built in. There is great demand for administration roles across all sectors and great opportunities for a progression route for woman into IT roles.

This could be the break that you are looking for. Apply Now.

Fully funded by the Northern Ireland Department for the Economy, the Flexible Skills Fund will be responsive to the needs of the local economy, helping to upskill and boost productivity in a global market.
