This month, FDM Returner Narister Oliveira, placed as a Business Analyst for BBC, spoke to MSN Money in an article about the challenges of returning to work after a career break and the role FDM played in helping her back into a career.
‘For two decades I worked in IT in Brazil, then I took a career break to raise my children and support my parents. After two years, I started a business in digital marketing, but left to move to Europe. I’d been out of the workforce for eight years but I could see there was demand for IT professionals in the UK, so started sending out CVs. I got an opportunity to join a returner programme with FDM Group – a professional services provider with a focus on IT. I was successful and got some interviews at FDM clients but didn’t have the requisite financial business knowledge. I kept looking for jobs and after an interview for the BBC Career Returners Programme was offered a position as a business analyst in the tech arm of the BBC. I started in January and am excited to be back, using my background and improving my skills.’
