Virgin Money ReCareer Programme

Following the tremendous success of our first ReCareer programme last year, we are excited to launch our second ReCareer Programme today.

Our 13-week ReCareer Programme provides a supported route back to work for those returning to work after a career break of 18 months or longer. It is a 13-week paid professional internship. The programme is open to all and specifically aspires to encourage women back into the workforce after taking time out and who are now keen to return to their careers.

In addition to joining a team and taking on a valuable and significant piece of work, the ReCareer Programme also incorporates tailored returner coaching, mentoring and induction to support you in your transition. Technical training is provided to ensure you are up to speed on any industry or professional changes. There will be the opportunity to network internally with senior members of the organisation, and a buddying system to ensure your enjoyment of the programme. Flexible working is available and it is the aim of the programme to offer you a permanent position at the end, although this is not guaranteed. There will be a one week break in the programme coinciding with the half-term school holiday.

About You

Have you been on an extended career break of 18 months or more and want to return to work? Do you feel that there is unfinished business with your career and are keen to reignite your ambitions? Do you have a university education or equivalent?

If you are a returner with strong Banking and Finance experience, we’d love to hear from you. We are particularly interested in finding Career Returners with skill-sets in the following areas:

  • Finance and Accounting

Positions are on offer in both the Newcastle (Gosforth) and Edinburgh offices of Virgin Money.
