Meet the returners

The program provides an opportunity to establish a network and meet people who are experiencing the same things as you. Through the program, we built a camaraderie that colleagues in each of our respective working groups could not really offer nor understand. We discussed what worked for us 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 provided me with the opportunity to discover my individual strengths as well as areas that I needed to develop. During the Macquarie Returner program, we clarified our career aspirations and reaffirmed our capability 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, 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.

In 2013, after spending 14 years on the Fixed Income and Equities trading desks at a large international Financial Services firm, I decided to take a career break. I wanted to spend time at home with my two young children. Now that my children are older, I began researching my options. I saw a post on LinkedIn for the Macquarie Returner Program and reached out to a former colleague. His response was “Absolutely, you should go for it.”  Keep an open mind as you re-enter the workforce. I found the people at Macquarie to be open and willing to meet and share their experience. Senior leaders invested the time to meet with us, which was an opportunity I wasn’t expecting.
