KPMG has launched a new initiative designed to help talented professionals return to work after taking a career break.
The professional services firm is offering roles in its management consulting and tax practice to experienced professionals who have been out of the workforce for 18 months or more.
Successful candidates will embark on a 12 week programme at KPMG, where they will be assigned a mentor and attend regular coaching sessions to help them update their skills and expertise. They will then have the opportunity to apply for a permanent role at KPMG.
Philip Davidson, Managing Partner and Interim Head of People at KPMG, said: “In order to meet our clients’ needs we must build experienced teams from a diverse range of backgrounds. This scheme is designed to bring talented people with wide ranging real world views and valuable skills back into the workplace.
“We know that traditional recruitment methods can deter returners from applying for jobs; by offering this programme and package of support we hope to appeal to these highly experienced and motivated individuals.”
