Meet our returners
After having been selected from hundreds of applicants, Macquarie’s Returner cohort is a special group, made even more so by being inaugural in the US. Those of us on the program experienced things together and were a source of strength, building a camaraderie that colleagues in each of our respective working groups could not really offer nor understand. We discussed what worked in our groups and provided each other ideas and advice on how to navigate, network and achieve. Through the cohort, I met an interesting group of talented individuals from various walks of life who are now part of my career network. This experience allowed me to discover strengths that I had which were valued among the team as well as areas that I needed to brush up on. During the Returner program, we clarified our vision for what we each desired in our careers and agreed that we were each enabled to relearn and renew our skill sets professionally and personally
Exposure to a wide variety of roles in different offices has kept my career interesting and challenging. Along with the mobility opportunities I’ve been able to take advantage of, I also took a three-year career break with my young children and was able to return to Macquarie on a part-time schedule that fits both my professional goals and personal commitments. I feel that returning to work after an extended break and being part-time has not held me back in my career. I have been promoted to Division Director this year, which shows that Macquarie is very supportive of enabling driven people who want stretch career opportunities to still be able to balance their home and work life.
