ReSUME is a 3-month paid placement to pave the journey back into the workforce after a career break.
The programme is designed for professionals who have been out for two years or more, ideally with a background in professional services or technology related field.
Participants will be given the re-entry support and training they need to thrive – from refreshing existing competencies to learning new technical skills. It’s an opportunity to equip yourself with the tools and confidence to help you make the decision to return to the workforce.
We know that returning to work, especially after a period of time away, can be daunting. That’s why our returners programme provides a strong focus on coaching, mentoring and training. You will receive training to help you to refresh your skills and coaching to ensure a smooth transition back to work.
A DEDICATED MENTOR
At Accenture, we believe in working together and supporting our colleagues. Throughout the ReSUME experience, you will be assigned a mentor who will be on-hand after the first-round interview until the end of the programme to offer you guidance and support.
Our mentors are there to ensure that you are achieving your goals the way you want it to.
During the programme, your mentor will connect with you regularly on your progress and will be there to offer their diverse expertise. In addition to the Mentoring support we have partnered with an external company called First 100 days who will provide expert coaching at key milestones: @start, @30 days, @60 days, @ 90 days. They will also support the returner to produce a record of achievements at the end of the placement period.
A STRONG COMMUNITY
Whether you are returning to work after 2 or 20 years, you will find that our programme will make you part of a strong community of like-minded people who will help ease your transition, as well as share experiences, tips and advice.
You will easily build a strong support network of mentors and buddies, and gain access to a diverse range of training as well as clubs, societies and networking groups which will allow you to meet peers through a range of community and social events.
After you complete your induction, you will start on a project and for the next three months you won’t just be shadowing others; you’ll be getting in the mix right from the start.
