WiSA Women Returners Programme

Women in Scottish Aquaculture (WiSA) has received Scottish Government funding to help women living in rural areas and not currently in employment to get back to work. 

Women take career breaks for many reasons, including raising children or other caring responsibilities. At some point, it will be the right time to return to work, and whether you previously worked in the aquaculture industry or not, WiSA is here to provide support with the Women Returners Programme.
