If you’ve been out of the workplace for two years or more, our Return to Work scheme is the ideal way to build on where you’ve been and look forward to what your future could be like.
Refresh your skills, reinvent your career.
We know that returning to work after a career break can be a daunting prospect, which is why we are offering a Returnship Program which is here to help. Our Returners Program is a 6-month placement which has been specifically designed to bridge the gap between taking a career break of two years or more and re-entering the workplace. We want you to capitalise on your existing experience, refresh your skills and knowledge whilst equipping you with the confidence to return to work. It gives meaningful experience, with the wraparound of coaching, mentoring support and training.
The scheme will be tailored to your individual needs. Depending on what is right for you, and your own personal development journey, you will have access to a portfolio of learning opportunities including career coaching, soft skill development modules and support from mentors within our business.
What will I get out of it?
While we can’t guarantee you a role at the end of the scheme, this is the ideal stepping stone back into working life. Following the programme, you will have had the opportunity to upskill in a number of areas and gain exposure to exciting projects and topics.
Having made the investment in you, we will, wherever possible, support you in finding a permanent role. If we’re unable to do so immediately, we’ll be in touch as and when a suitable permanent position arises.
You’ll be employed on a six-month contract and we are open to flexible working and reduced hours.
Please just let us know what your needs are and we will do our best to accommodate. We’ve created this scheme specifically to build on what you know. So your past experience will be invaluable!
A strong support network is vital to making a success of your return to work. You’ll have several people on hand to help make your integration back into the workplace as seamless as possible.
You will have a mentor, buddy and also the opportunity to have sessions with a Professional Coach. There will also be peer support from other individuals and our aim is to make you feel as included and supported as possible!
We understand returning to work is exciting but, for some, can be daunting too. To make things as smooth as possible see our selection process, below, so you know what to expect every step of the way:
1. Submit your CV and covering letter online.
2. If short-listed you’ll have a telephone discussion with one of our recruiters.
3. The next stage will be a face-to-face interview with the Hiring Manager.
4. If successfully hired you’ll be inducted into your local business, and welcomed onto the Scheme and given information on what to expect whilst on your placement with us, making sure you get the best start to your career with Siemens.
