As part of the programme, Kleinwort Hambros is partnering with Women Returners, a professional network designed to encourage women back into the workforce.
UK private bank Kleinwort Hambros is encouraging bankers who have taken career breaks of more than two years to return to business, highlighting a scramble to retain talent, as in the case of women who leave to have children.
The firm has rolled out its Career Returners Programme which operates from offices in the UK: London, Newbury, Cambridge, Leeds and Edinburgh.
As part of the programme, Kleinwort Hambros is partnering with Women Returners, a professional network designed to encourage women back into the workforce. Women Returners will provide the training, coaching and other help needed to re-integrate employees into the workplace, Kleinwort Hambros said in a statement late last week.
“We are focused on building high performing teams and it is therefore crucial that talented people who have had career breaks are welcomed back into the industry and given the support they may need,” Gabrielle Branson, deputy CEO of Kleinwort Hambros, said.
“As well as constantly reviewing our maternity and shared parental leave policy, flexible working and talent management programmes, we are increasingly involved with business networks such as WealthiHer, which aims to empower female clients with the trust and confidence to manage their wealth,” he said.
