A leading investment manager is looking for a technology professional who has taken a voluntary career break of at least 18 months and is looking to return to work.
Man Group, one of the world’s largest independent alternative investment managers, is partnering with coaching firm Women Returners to launch its 2017 paid returnship programme.
During the three-month programme, which is envisaged to start in May, the successful participant will work on professional assignments based on their skills and interests and will benefit from coaching through the transition period from Women Returners, together with internal mentoring and network access. At the end of the three months, there will be the possibility of a permanent role with the organisation.
Man Group says it is open to receiving applications from people who want to work flexibly.
They are looking for technology professionals with experience in either Project Management, Helpdesk Support and Relationship Management or Business Analysis.
Man Group say they are actively seeking to increase female representation throughout the firm and are dedicated to implementing recruitment initiatives that work to meet this objective. These include Drive, an internal network with an ongoing programme of events to inform and support women within the firm, providing networking opportunities both internally and externally. Alongside this initiative, they are also working to develop a mentoring programme aimed at supporting and retaining female talent. In addition, the firm is committed to increasing female participation in their graduate programme, targeting university courses and clubs within relevant disciplines that will help inform their targeted recruitment.
