Returners – HR Business Partner (Rewards)




At Capgemini we recognise that many skilled professionals require additional support following a career break, which is why we are proud to offer a tailored approach to helping you rediscover your potential and join our expanding network of Returners.

Capgemini’s Returners Programme is aimed at anyone who has taken a career break of 2 years or more for whatever reason. To enable you to refresh and update existing skills as well as developing confidence the main programme benefits are:

  • Initial 6-month, fixed-term contract with a view to becoming a permanent employee.
  • Four Returners coaching sessions over the 6-month period.
  • Tailored L&D plan devised with the business to provide support back into the team.
  • Support network of existing Returners.
    Some roles do require security clearance due to the access of secure information.  The basis of gaining this clearance would require you to have lived in the UK for the last 5 years.  This is a legal requirement.  Therefore, please apply only to these roles if this applies to you.
