You will be available to work in London and have the right to work in the UK.

About the Diversity Project: Cross-Company Returner Programme
The Cross-Company Returner Programme, now in its fourth year, is a 6-month returnship or supported hiring programme run by Women Returners in partnership with the Diversity Project, an industry-led initiative championing a more inclusive culture within the Savings and Investment sector.
The Programme offers a 6-month returnship placement or a permanent role with one of the participating employers. All roles will be based in London and surrounding areas but we anticipate the programme will include hybrid working. The Programme will commence on 24 April 2023, and will include transition support during a 6-month period. There will be an opportunity to join on a 6 month returnship with a strong likelihood of permanent employment at the end of the programme, or join a permanent role from day 1. Positions are at a professional level with a range of roles and areas available; these will be advertised when the programme application process opens early January 2023.
This is a fully supported route back to work and you will receive internal mentoring and a buddy, together with coaching support from Women Returners to help you to transition successfully back into the workplace. As coaching support will be delivered centrally, you will benefit from a large supportive peer network of like-minded people across all the organisations. Various flexible working options may be available during and after the Programme depending on the employer organisation and the role.
