Relaunch your Career: planned happenstance, personal brand and values, inspiring stories and so much more…

This sell-out event was attended by wise women from Nottingham, London, Dublin and just down the road – all keen to relaunch their careers.  Many intend to return to work after a career break, others want to change career direction, most planned to do both.  After a long wait, our time had finally arrived.

First up Katie Perry who isn’t a pop star but has had a much more interesting career path.  By embracing planned happenstance, she’s gradually transformed from physics PhD student to CEO for the Daphne Jackson Trust which assists professionals returning to all sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics.  In her current role, she’s streamlined the fellowship application process so it’s not as long and the number of fellowships have increased – does this have anything to do with Katie doing karate?

Next up Tennie Videler.  Always entertaining but I didn’t think I’d learn anything as I knew my values, or so I thought.  After a few questions on what we’d enjoyed most and least in our lives, Tennie described 7 key values (not including lifestyle “which isn’t a value – you just have to make your life fit”).  Small changes in emphasis compared to the careers workbook I’d previously completed but wow, what a difference! My main career driver became crystal clear!

University of Cambridge Returning Carers Scheme

After succesful pilots last year, the Returning Carers Scheme has now been launched as a Cambridge University-wide scheme. The scheme is open to women and men, although it is part of a wider programme to encourage Heads of Schools and Departments to support women in their career development. It aims to support the career development of research and academic staff who are going on, or have returned from, caring responsibilities and offers funding to assist qualifying staff who have had a period of absence, or reduced their working hours.
