Morgan Sindall is looking for those who have taken a voluntary career break, but are now wishing to return to construction and infrastructure, to apply for their returnships programme.
The company is looking for people at all levels but particularly those with mid to senior management level experience, who have taken a voluntary career break of at least 18 months. Applicants may have left the industry to run their own business, raise children or care for a relative, or they may have had an illness themselves which stopped them from working, but are now well enough to return to work.
The programme is similar to an intern placement – an initial three month paid placement will be offered, with a view to securing a permanent position. The placement will be a staged return, to help candidates re-engage with working life.
Discussing the benefits of the programme, Morgan Sindall’s HR director, Dawn Moore said, “There are times when many of us may have to take a lengthy career break, whether this is for family or personal reasons. Returning to work after this time can be daunting and our returnships programme seeks to resolve this.
“Not only will the individual be able to balance their home life with their return through a staged programme, but will also be offered the opportunity to build upon previous experience and develop new skills.”
The closing date for applications is Friday 15 December, and applications will be considered from those who have worked in the construction and infrastructure sector, as well from candidates who feel they have the transferrable skills, experience or qualifications from other sectors.
Applicants will be invited to an assessment on Tuesday 30 January and those successful will be invited to join the returnships programme from Tuesday 6 March 2018. Following the placement, if a suitable, permanent position is available the applicant will be offered a full time or flexible working position.
