Reignite your career: Take the Noon Masterclass!

Lisa Unwin, Noon's Career Expert, gives you a roadmap to returning to the workplace with our Reignite Your Career Masterclass

Lisa Unwin portraitWhatever your initial career ambitions, it’s highly likely that you will experience several bumps and changes of tack along the way. You may end up hating your chosen career, suffer burnout, find a new passion, battle health problems, take time out to bring up children, or find yourself looking after elderly relatives. It is rare to enter the workforce at 21 and follow a linear path that takes you straight through to retirement. In short, careers, like real life, ebb and flow.

The Noon Reignite Your Career Masterclass, created by the Noon Careers Expert Lisa Unwin, will help you build a pathway to getting back into the workforce, finding a job you like or pivoting to a new career.

Go to Part 1: Dump your excuses, write your pitch

How do you get your back on track if you’ve taken a career break?

Let’s imagine you’re sitting there now in your forties or fifties, with lots of previous experience, maybe even a post graduate qualification of some sort and a desire to return to work in some shape or form. But you also have what you see as a worrying gap on your CV. Where do you start if, like many other women, your enthusiasm is tempered with a lack of confidence? How do you get your career back on track if you’ve spent some years away?

Women with an abundance of experience and enthusiasm are a valuable asset, and smart business leaders are fast waking up to the fact that they need to welcome them back with open arms.

Now is a good time to get back in the game

Strange as this might seem, this is good time to be looking to get back. With any crisis comes opportunity and this one is no different. Remote working is here to stay and with it, the chance for more women to move back into the workforce.

Women with an abundance of experience and enthusiasm are a valuable asset, and smart business leaders are fast waking up to the fact that they need to welcome them back with open arms. I set up She’s Back five years ago, specifically to help brilliant women who were keen to get back in the game but didn’t know how.

I will be sharing my winning strategies and helping you build the confidence you need to succeed. By the end, you will have the skills to reignite your career, and, ultimately, your life.
