A London council is to become the first local authority to launch a programme for professionals looking to return to work after a career break.
Enfield Council is partnering with Women Returners to launch the Career Returners @ Enfield Council Programme for male and female professionals who have taken a career break of two years or more and want to get back to work. The paid six-month work programme starts on 3rd May 2017 and the closing date for applications is 9th March 2017.
Successful candidates will be placed in project teams or services matching their skills and experience and will receive coaching workshops from Women Returners, mentoring from a Council colleague and a comprehensive induction process as well as plenty of opportunities to network. The Council will provide regular training to help candidates brush up their skills and learn about local government and working at Enfield Council. The aim is that the Programme will equip them with the necessary skills and knowledge to apply for permanent or temporary roles within the Council. These roles will be considered on a flexible basis.
They are looking for individuals with a successful track record and relevant qualifications in the following professions:
- Policy and strategy development
- Project/Programme Management
- Regeneration Programme delivery
