Returner Hub

Inclusivity

LIFE IS GREAT. BUT IT CAN ALSO BE MESSY! 

How do we explain the blips, the bumps in the road, or the rewarding (and challenging!) experience of taking time out to care for family members, to employers and businesses who often have a myopic view of what a good CV should look like? Where do we go when we reach a fork in the road, or hit a brick wall, and need unbiased yet sensible career advice?

THE INCLUSIVITY APPROACH

When Inclusivity was formed we wanted to build a business that supports people to have long-term fulfilling careers even when bumps in the road appear. To embrace the chaos and the calm. We view it as your unique story and believe that a CV never tells more than half a story. We also believe in the role coaching can play to enable people to better meet the challenges that present along the way. We want to encourage everyone to play the long game when it comes to your career and believe that all problems have a solution.

Here's how we help:

  • We run Returner programmes with forward thinking organisations, providing opportunities for you to reignite your career.
  • We provide 1 to 1 career coaching services.
  • We run quarterly Career Rescue Bootcamps that are free to attend.

Returning after a career break?

Be Northern, and they’ll help you be you.

Right now, Northern are doing something pretty amazing. As one of the UK’s largest train operators, they’re creating the kind of business that anyone can picture themselves being part of, whatever their background, skills, experience, or lifestyle.

It’s the kind of place where you can be ambitious, be determined, be flexible, and be your best. It’s where you won’t just be Northern - you’ll be able to be you.

​​


And if you’re looking to return to a career after an extended break, it could be the perfect place for you to rediscover your skills, experience and expertise. That’s because you’ll find roles in everything from train driving, to control, customer service, engineering and more. Not to mention lots of training and development, mentorship programmes with Women in Rail, a commitment to paying a living wage, Disability Confident status, and Investors in People accreditation.

And all in a business that’s creating a brand new, diverse, inclusive, equal, and flexible future for everyone who works there.

So, if you haven’t thought about working for a train company before, it’s time to start looking at Northern in a different way. It’s time to be you.
