Ashim Bain (10 year career break) 

I would recommend the STEM ReCharge programme to every returner to help increase confidence and upskill themselves“.

Ashim, a chartered physicist, worked as a Visiting Research Fellow in the school of Electronic Electrical and System Engineering (University of Birmingham, UK) prior to taking a 10-year career break to care for his wife. During his career break Ashim wrote three books in Physics and Materials Science and developed his programming skills.

Now keen to return to work, Ashim found the STEM ReCharge programme boosted his confidence and helped him understand the skills required in the current job market, “The STEM ReCharge Career Coaching was amazing! I learnt the key areas to help make myself visible and showcase my skillset through LinkedIn and my CV”.
