With our fourth London programme starting on 12 April 2021, we are responding to the increasing demand of leading businesses to support returner tech talent through the ‘Your Return to Tech’ programme.
We were also inundated with over 100 applications from experienced, mid-senior software developers for our March programme in London which commences shortly, so we decided to meet the needs of both the returners and our sponsors to run another cohort.
‘Your Return To Tech’ encompasses a two week induction, eight weeks of expert teaching, and a further four weeks of interview and tailored career support from our talent and coaching teams to help returners to secure a role with our sponsors.
The free programme is designed to provide skilled tech professionals returning to industry accessible opportunities to refresh their skills and reignite their career.
The programme is delivered entirely remotely via Google Classroom and Zoom sessions, and is 100% free for returners. We’re able to offer the opportunity at no cost to the individual through our sponsorship arrangement, where returners commit to taking up a permanent software developer role with one the sponsor businesses at the end of the programme. The sponsors for this programme are being finalised and will be announced shortly.
The job roles available at the end of this programme with our sponsors are based in the London and surrounding areas, so applicants must live within a commutable distance as they will be expected to travel to an office location for part or all of each week once they’ve secured a position.
Applicants must be returning to a career in software development, having previous mid-senior level experience within this area, and have had no longer than a six year career break to be eligible for the programme.
Applications for Your Return to Tech London April 2021 are now OPEN until Friday 12 March. Head to this page and click on the Find Out More button at the top of the page to receive our brochure and a link to book your place on our Intro to Your Return To Tech webinar, where you will learn more about the programme, our application and selection process, and hear from some of our real returners.
Since 2017, we have empowered more than 70 returners, 59 of those women, into mid-senior level technical careers with businesses including BBC, AutoTrader, Booking.com Lloyds Banking Group, ANS, Infinity Works, Equal Care Co-op, Padoq, North Power Women, Eigen Technologies, Alfa, Xero, Coeo, OpenCredo, Vodafone and AO.com.
Further programmes will be launched in other locations during 2021, so keep an eye on our website and social media channels for upcoming opportunities.
