The hub that connects women returners with jobs and training opportunities
Gender and age diversity in the workforce are enormous social challenges facing society
Gina Oglesby was inspired to start Back To Work Connect by the number of well-qualified and experienced women she met who had either left or been forced out of the workforce
Back To Work Connect is an education and career hub aimed at helping women who have taken time out to raise their families get back into the work force. It’s the brain child of Gina Oglesby who set up the company in 2019 having recognised a gap in the market for the type of supports women needed to reboot their working lives outside the home environment.
Oglesby hit on the idea for her business in 2018 while studying innovation, entrepreneurship and enterprise at UCD. She then participated in the Social Entrepreneurs Ireland Academy for high potential start-ups and has recently completed the New Frontiers programme at the Synergy Centre at IT Tallaght.
