5.4 Helping hand
Remember, there is plenty of support available to you in your quest to return to STEM work! There are a number of agencies and funding resources specifically created for returners from career breaks, as well as other organisations, advisors and formal networks to help you find jobs, start up a company or choose a suitable training course. You can find more details of these in the Further reading section.
If you have previously been a researcher and are hoping to return to a research career, either in industry or academia, there is a special scheme available that offers a two-year funded fellowship, run by the Daphne Jackson Trust. In this video, Katie Perry from the Daphne Jackson Trust describes the scheme.
