Returning Talent Conference Dublin 2018

Job Description:
Returning Talent Conference Dublin 2018

Applications are now open for our ninth Returning Talent programme in Europe. The programme aims to help bridge the gap for people re-entering the workforce, having been out of work for 12 months or longer, for example stay-at-home parents or carers, or someone who has chosen to take a career break

We are looking to attract individuals from a range of industry backgrounds, including professional and financial services and technology organisations, with experience in (but not limited to) finance, project or programme management, risk, compliance, wholesale credit, banking operations and technology. We plan to source suitable candidates from the programme to fill open and future positions in our Dublin-based teams.

Returning Talent Dublin consists of a two-day conference, aimed at exploring the changing workplace and the role of the returning employee in this office environment. As a programme participant, you will hear from guest speakers and join a series of workshops designed to support a transition back to work. You will be provided with practical guidance on focusing and managing a career search and insights into balancing work and home life. You will also have access to executive coaching and there will be opportunities for you to build your professional connections, through networking sessions with Bank employees and fellow participants. At the end of the programme, you will feel better equipped and confident to re-enter the world of work.

About Returning Talent

Seven years ago, BofAML pioneered one of the first Returner programmes in the UK. Since then, the programme has expanded to include Dublin and Chester. More than 350 women and men have participated to date, with many going on to secure roles at BofAML or at other firms.

BofAML's progress in this area, as well as its ongoing commitment to develop female talent, won it the 2015 and 2017 Top Employer Award for Career Progression. The company was recognised as Euromoney's World's Best Bank for Diversity 2016, and has ranked on the Bloomberg Gender Equality Index for three consecutive years.

Commenting on the Dublin Returning Talent programme, Peter Keegan, country executive for Ireland at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, said: "We are delighted to announce the launch of our second Returning Talent programme in Dublin. Holding it here in Ireland is not only testament to the programme's proven success in our UK offices where, as in Dublin, we have substantial Global Technology and Operations teams, it also demonstrates the value and importance we place on identifying strong and diverse talent across our local business. Through initiatives such as this, we are able to give people at all stages of their lives and careers, the support, confidence and skills to prosper, and the inspiration to succeed in the financial services marketplace. We look forward to welcoming the Dublin participants."
