Your time to shine

Our Returnship programme aims to help you return to work with confidence by refreshing your skills and offering an effective transition.

You'll receive mentoring and coaching support as well as training and updating technical skills where relevant.

The Returnship programme is similar to an intern placement - you'll be paid during the three month placement with a view to securing a permanent position with us at the end of the placement.

Who are Returnships for?

The Returnship programme is for people with management to senior management level experience, who have taken a voluntary career break of at least 18 months. We are also interested in hearing from people at all levels who have taken a career break but have experience / qualifications in construction, infrastructure or related industries.

You may have left the industry to run your own business or taken a career break to raise children. You may have had an illness which stopped you working, but you are now well enough to return to work or you may have stopped work to care for a relative.

Experience of construction and infrastructure is not a pre-requisite for every role - but a genuine interest in our sector is.

You'll be keen to return to work for a leading UK construction and infrastructure company which works on projects from small works and repair and maintenance, to the design and delivery of complex construction and engineering projects.

The programme recruitment process works as follows:
You'll be asked to complete an online application and upload your CV. If your initial application is successful you'll be asked to complete a personality profiling questionnaire. The next step is to attend our assessment.

Following the assessment, successful applicants will be invited to join the Returnship programme. The Returnship programme will run for three months - you must be available three days a week during the first month, four days a week during month two and five days a week during month three. The programme is set up to offer you a phased return to work and will include specially selected training modules to enhance your confidence in returning to the workplace.
