Return@Capgemini We recognise that the transition from an extended career break back into the workplace can be challenging. This is why, after a pilot in 2017, we launched our Return@Capgemini programme in 2018, offering structure and support to bring talented professionals into our organisation.
The Return@Capgemini Programme offers a paid placement of six months with the possibility of a permanent role at the end of the programme. We target talented people that have been on a career break for two or more years.
As the first of its kind in the accelerating technology sector, we provide a wraparound of support:
Meaningful experience - Paid six months placements with a potential permanent role at the end
Access to a community - Access to a community of other returners in the same situation
Access to coaching - Professional coaching provided by Women Returners
Professional development - A development programme tailored to a technology specialism
The programme has been extremely popular with all launch events oversubscribed. During these events we give candidates the opportunity to get to know us as an organisation, meet our leaders and receive a development session from Women Returners. registrations for our London launch event within 48 hours applications within a week of the London launch event.
