Childcare Services workshop: maintaining balance upon returning to work

Monday 8 July 2019, 10am to 2pm

Chemistry Research Laboratory, Wolfson Seminar Room, Mansfield Road , OX1 3TA

This workshop is being offered across the University to parents/carers who have recently returned to work after a career break. The goal is to provide recent returners with the information, tools, support, and networks they need to ensure a successful and smooth return to work.

The workshop is open to everyone who has recently returned to work, or will be returning, after taking a break for caring responsibilities. The workshop is particularly relevant for people returning to work following a period of parental leave, paternity leave, maternity or adoption leave.

Over the half-day workshop, you will:

  • Learn about childcare and other family support
  • Learn about relevant HR policies and practices, and have your questions answered by an HR team member and the Head of Childcare Services
  • Get an overview of the core skills needed to communicate with confidence and practise some of those skills in a supportive environment
  • Hear from a panel of returning carers (academics, researchers, and professional and support staff) who will share their tips on time management and balancing home and work demands
  • Network and meet other recent returners from around the University over lunch

Tea/coffee and lunch will be provided.
