EY has announced the launch of a new EY Reconnect intake, a paid returner programme due to begin in September 2018, for career returners wishing to re-enter the workforce.
What they say about the programme:
“The 12-week returner programme offers a supported route back into work with induction, coaching and mentoring for talented individuals who have had a career break of between 2 and 10 years – you will also have an instant peer group for additional support. This is an opportunity for you to reconnect with your career, your previous experience and expertise within business. You will join client teams in one of the business areas:
- People Services
Who is the programme aimed at?
“You will have worked as a manager or above, with a background in professional services, consultancy, financial services, technology or related industry.
It’s not all about your technical experience. EY Reconnect offers the opportunity to join an inclusive and diverse workplace, where we encourage creativity and flexibility. It’s not just something we talk about; the skills you’ve acquired from your career break will be celebrated and valued as much as those from your professional CV.”
Is there any flexibility?
“The 12 week programme is designed to be full time to best give you the exposure, support and opportunities available. However, 90% of our past Reconnect participants who joined us permanently did so on a flexible working arrangement that suited them and their teams. All EY roles are open to flexibility and we are here to consult and work with you on flexible working options should you join us at the end of the 12 weeks.”
Where are the opportunities based?
Roles are available in various locations across the UK, including Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, London, Manchester, Newcastle and Reading.
How do I apply?
You’ll need to submit your application before the deadline on 1 July 2018. For more details and how to apply, see here.
