Mott MacDonald is partnering with STEM Returners to support professionals who want to return to the industry
Mott MacDonald has launched a new jobs programme to help engineers return to work following a career break.
The firm’s second returners programme is being run in partnership with STEM Returners and will mainly be based at their sites in Altrincham, Brighton and across Scotland.
The first phase of the programme will have up to nine available opportunities in civil, mechanical and electrical skill sets, with more roles becoming available in 2024.
The new programme will be part of Mott MacDonald’s Re:Connectors initiative, which offers opportunities for experienced professionals who are looking to rebuild their career or people who are looking to change industries.
Jen Ross, regional human resources manager at Mott MacDonald, said: “We are excited to be taking part in the STEM Returners programme this year supporting our inclusion and diversity ambitions.
“We look forward to welcoming candidates who may have had a career break or change and want the experience of working with a company that is supportive, engaged and appreciative of the skills and experiences they will bring to Mott MacDonald and our clients.”
Successful candidates may be offered full-time positions at Mott MacDonald upon the completion of their 12-week placement.
Natalie Desty, director of STEM Returners, said: “It is a shame that so many talented engineers who do not have a typical CV or body of experience face massive challenges when trying to gain work, which is why we are very proud to be entering this new partnership with Mott MacDonald, to help return highly skilled people back into the industry.
“Only by partnering with industry leaders like Mott MacDonald, will we make vital changes in STEM recruitment practices, to help those who are finding it challenging to return to the sector and improve diversity and inclusion.”
