 "I cannot begin to explain what Women ReBOOT has done for me! It has increased my confidence, given me new skills and a renewed attitude of possibility. It completely changed my outlook towards going back to work. Through Women ReBOOT I have a new job and more importantly I know I can do this job well. I'm not sure I would have said that before starting the programme" Gillian, Women ReBOOT participant on her new job with Version 1.


"The workshops were excellent, particularly the very honest stories from women returners. It was also very good to get an insight from recruiters and other people working in the sector. The clear message was that the gap in my CV wasn't necessarily an issue and that my previous experience was still relevant" Deirdre, Women ReBOOT participant.

"When I read the initial article on Women ReBOOT, it completely resonated with me. I felt the author completely understood me in a way I hadn't even understood myself. Even applying for the programme was a challenge for someone who had been out of the workforce for 10 years. Three months later I can't tell you the difference in my confidence levels and how much more prepared I feel about returning to the workforce. It's been amazing and life-changing." Caoimhe, Women ReBOOT participant
