SPEAR­HEAD­ING RETURNERS IN TECH

Woman & Home - - Amazing Women Awards -

✢ Sheila Flavell, 62, heads the Global Women in Tech cam­paign and Get Back to Busi­ness pro­gramme, aimed at women returners. She is cur­rently Chief Op­er­at­ing Of­fi­cer at FDM.

Sheila says: “I was an air stew­ardess in the Mid­dle East for 12 years, then when I re­turned to the UK I had young chil­dren and found it hard to get a job; I don’t want the same to hap­pen to other women. We’ve em­ployed over 100 returners in the past year – I’m proud of that. You don’t need to have stud­ied STEM to em­bark on a ca­reer in IT. We re-launch ca­reers, en­abling women to take charge of their des­tiny.” fd­m­group.com/ca­reers/returners-to-work
