Launched in 2014, the back2businessship project offers a route back into the marcoms industry for those who have taken a career break of two to three years, for maternity and childcare or other reasons.
The programme includes two weeks of mentoring, skills assessment and up-skilling in November, followed by a three-month paid 'returnship' in January.
Back2businessship is looking for companies to host returners, and will be running an event on 16 November where companies can meet this year's group of returners.
Businesses already involved in the project include PR firm Golin and charity Save the Children.
The project has already helped over 80 candidates re-join the workplace in permanent or flexible roles, said F1 Recruitment, which helped found back2businessship alongside ad agency R/GA, and works on the scheme on a pro bono basis.
In 2015, the project offered placements to 25 people, particularly encouranging PR firms to bring mothers back to work.
