One UK employer, Morgan Sindall, is offering individuals the chance to re-engage with working life and develop new skills with the possibility of a career at the company afterwards.

Launched in September 2017, the Returnships programme was developed by Morgan Sindall HR director, Dawn Moore who was recently awarded the Champions Award at the Working Mums 2017 Top Employer Awards in recognition of Morgan Sindall’s commitment to developing a flexible working culture at the company.

“There are times when one may have to take a lengthy career break, whether for family or personal reasons. Returning to work after this time can be difficult and our Returnships programme seeks to resolve this,” said Moore.

“Individuals will be able to balance their home life with their return through a staged programme, and will be offered the opportunity to build upon previous experience and develop new skills.”

The programme would suit people from all levels, especially those with mid to senior management experience, who have taken a voluntary career break of at least 18 months.

The closing date for applications is 15 December 2017.
