We talked about the mutual benefits of returning professional internships (returnships) for returners and employers back in November. At that time we couldn't identify any UK initiatives - all were US/India based. So we are delighted to report that the first UK returnship has just been launched by Credit Suisse in London - hopefully the first of many.
