You can. Relaunch your Career at Mastercard.
As a technology company in the global payments business, Mastercard connects consumers, financial institutions, merchants, governments and businesses worldwide and enable them to use secure and convenient electronic forms of payment. The products Mastercard creates change the way the world pays and gets paid.

What if you could return to work at a company that values your skills and experience?
Relaunch your Career is Mastercard’s global returnship programme.
The programme is designed to enable highly-experienced people who were working at mid-management level before taking a break from their careers to re-enter the workplace.
Mastercard knows it can be tough for people to return to work after time away, so the programme provides returners with a range of tools and support to help them find their way.
As a returner, you can expect to be fully immersed into the organisation for 16 weeks. From the start you will have the opportunity to work on a strategic and commercially-focused project, enabling you to build on your skills and previous experience. You will attend a two-day induction, receive on-the-job training, a buddy, coaching and plenty of opportunities to learn about the business and develop new and existing skills.
And at the end of the 16 weeks, there’s the opportunity to apply for a permanent role.
