Welcome to the Cityparents Experience Bank

How was your experience of taking parental leave from work? Are you curious to know how other City professionals have managed their time away from the office and their subsequent return? Are you about to take leave and want to hear the experiences of others?

To find out, explore our new Experience Bank, an online space for our members to share anonymous experiences of parental leave, including maternity, paternity, shared parental, adoption, surrogacy and compassionate leave, and career breaks.

You can search Experiences by various criteria including type of leave, length, work pattern on return, and the type of experience.
