What did candidates say about the programme?

 “This is an incredible opportunity to get my city career back on track: everyone involved has been able to see beyond what looks like a strangely shaped CV and unusual career path.  And yet for me, taking a break enabled me to come back stronger. I’m grateful for the chance and can’t wait to get started.”

 “I can’t believe that people were willing to look at me with such a long gap on my CV.  And I’m so incredibly grateful and excited”
