This is our calling. This is a new HP.
Returners Programme for HP UK&I is currently being trialed with a pilot requisition within our category management team. The aim is to offer a rewarding work environment and valuable experience to people who are elsewhere disregarded due to gaps in their work history due to an array of reasons – it could be people returning from a maternity/parental leave which was not supported by their previous employer so they had to face unemployment, somebody leaving work to be a full-time carer for a child, partner or other dependent or somebody who has faced a long period .
For many in these circumstances, returning to work can be seen as daunting and also very challenging. A gap in your CV can be debilitating without the right network or opportunity to return to work, additionally alongside the lack of recent experience one key problem is a lack of education or understanding on how to secure a position. The jobs market is constantly changing, updating and redefining itself meaning new methods, routes and sources are being utilized. If you aren’t part of a workforce, it can be increasingly difficult to keep ahead of the game when it comes to recruitment.
Here at HP, we believe that a career break does not have to knock you back to the start of the career ladder. By offering a supportive environment we can help returners to thrive in their development, build their confidence and reattune themselves to working life – whilst building on the work flexibility that HP offers to work around any responsibilities or dependents they may have.
How does it work?
The scheme is set up to work around maternity cover within the UK & Ireland which otherwise is filled through contingent workers. The contracts will either be 6 or 12 months fixed term with the potential to either have a contract extension or permanent offer of employment following the fixed term period being a key possibility if they choose to accept.
Ultimately, it is a great channel for both parties – on their side they are getting a fantastic opportunity to harness their prior skills and build on that growth whilst returning to a steady career in a brilliant company. Whilst for us we are hoping to be able to encourage top talent back to work and utilize that in order to define the next generation for HP.
