ICE Coffee Break: how do you pick up your career after paternity/maternity leave

Event organised by ICE

26 March 2024
10:30 - 11:00 GMT

This event has now ended

You can catch-up on details or any broadcast and downloads here.


A part of the ICE London Membership offering we are organising a series of events aimed at ICE members within 0 – 10 years post your professional qualification, although open to all.

The purpose of the events is to engage our members and provide opportunities for them to develop ‘softer’ skills and discuss the challenges typically faced once they are professionally qualified. If you have just received qualification, you have been qualified for a while or you haven't completed professional qualification, but you are in this approximate stage of career, this is for you! 

Many people may now be in a more senior position within the team and managing more people/responsibility, looking to bring in work to their companies, forge new contacts, discuss hiring practices, managing wellbeing of a team etc. There are many engineers in this ‘post-professional qualification’ stage of career and the ICE Coffee Break series of events is here to support you. 

Hannah Kitcherside, director at Turner & Townsend will present and start a discussion on: 

  • What are the main challenges during/after maternity/paternity leave?
  • Do you believe the industry is doing enough to embrace engineers returning to work? What support is available?
  • How would you build-up your confidence to returning to work?
