Tideway Returner Programme 2017

Tideway is on the look-out for more talented professionals wanting to restart their careers after an extended career break, following the success of the Tideway Returner Programme in 2015 and 2016. Two new opportunities are available in the Communications and Human Resources teams in London. The Programme is a full-time paid 12-week internship, starting on 24 April 2017, with the possibility of an on-going role at the end of the period (timescales are short as these are open roles but there may be flexibility for a later start-date if required). Apply as soon as possible, latest by 9 April 2017.

What are they offering?

You will work on significant assignments based on your skills and experience. Tideway recognises your need to get back up to speed after a lengthy break, so throughout the programme you will receive coaching support from Women Returners; you will also be supported through formal and informal networks.

The roles are primarily office-based, requiring a minimum commitment of 30 hours per week.

Who is Tideway?

The River Thames is at the heart of London but, in recent years, it has often been overlooked. Tideway wants to help change all that, and wants you to be part of their ambition to re-invigorate a much under-used social, environmental and economic asset. Tideway’s task is to deliver a new tunnel to protect the River Thames from the tens of millions of tonnes of sewage pollution discharged into it every year. This is not just an engineering project, it’s about building a London that is fit for your children, and even your great, great, grandchildren. They want to reconnect London with its river. Tideway is committed to gender equality and is open to flexible working across the organisation.

Who are they looking for?

Successful candidates will have had a 2+ year career break from the workforce and will have a successful track record in a relevant discipline. You will need to have a passion for the legacy Tideway will leave for London, have excellent interpersonal and communication skills and enjoy using your expertise to solve problems.

Creative Services Manager

The role will take an overview of all of Tideway’s creative output to ensure accuracy, a consistent tone of voice and managing company reputation – including website, printed publications for stakeholders and the general public and our hugely successful new Tideway team newspaper.
