Applications Now Closed

Looking for more than just a job? A place with more perks, support and possibilities? Then get ready to enjoy more of what you need, want and love. You’ll find things personally rewarding and you’ll be generously rewarded. 

O2 has launched their second O2 Career Returners Programme for professionals who are ready to re-start their careers after an extended career break of 2 or more years. The paid 14 week programme starts in October 2017 and the closing date for applications is 30 June 2017. The programme will be based from Slough, UK.

See Clare's story and Liz's story to read about the experiences of last year's O2 Career Returners participants.


What are they offering?

On the programme you’ll receive mentoring, coaching support from Women Returners, training and an opportunity to network. Their internal resources will help refresh your knowledge and will get you up to speed with their systems. This support will help you get back in the swing of things so at the end of the programme you’ll be perfectly placed to apply for permanent or interim roles with O2. They’re open to applications from people who are looking for full time roles or 4 days a week, and as an organisation are flexible in their working patterns.
