A new returner programme is seeking applicants with a background or interest in technology who have taken a career break and are looking to get back to work.
The New Horizons Technology returner programme is a collaboration between Women Returners and Fidelity International.
The programme offers paid three placements of 20 weeks, starting in January 2017 and the possibility of a permanent role at the end of the assignment. Coaching will be provided by Women Returners to support the transition back into the workplace and flexible work options are available.
Positions are for management level roles and above in the global technology department. Fidelity International, who are experts in investment solutions and retirement, are looking for people with experience at a managerial level, ideally but not necessarily within a technology function. Financial services experience is not essential. Roles are available within Change/Project/Programme Management, Technical Architecture and Service Management.
The roles will be located in the UK offices in Surrey (Kingswood), Kent (Hildenborough, Tonbridge) or London (Cannon Street) and are open to people with a background or an interest in technology.
The application deadline is Wednesday, 30th November.
Women Returners is holding its first conference in November for anyone seeking to restart their career after a career break.
