Many skilled and experienced professionals take career breaks to care for family members, to travel or study, or for health or other personal reasons. With our STEM Returners programme, we’re dedicated to supporting and empowering these individuals to regain skills and confidence as they return to the workplace. We promote an inclusive work environment where everyone is supported to be themselves and achieve their ambitions, so we’ve launched this programme to encourage talented individuals to do just this.
This programme particularly welcomes applications from female returners, supporting our aim to address the gender imbalance that’s recognised within STEM careers and within the defence sector. However, recognising that career breaks for parental care or personal reasons are not exclusive to women, we invite applicants of all genders to apply.
