Returners programme

Mazars offers a supported return to those who have taken career breaks and are looking to return to the workplace. The support is available to those who have taken career breaks of 18 months coming from financial services, accountancy or professional services background and who were ideally at manager level or above prior to their career break.

Mazars offers a supported programme to those who have taken extended career breaks and are keen to return to the workplace.

Our programme is designed to help you thrive in your new workplace, with one-to-one coaching, flexible working, as well as part-time and full-time opportunities.

We want to create a safe space for you to grow back into work, offering you the support to readjust to the workplace whilst balancing lifestyle commitments as well as updating your knowledge, developing your skills and progressing your career. The programme is for people who have taken career breaks of at least 18 months, but we welcome applications from people who have been away much longer.

Eligibility criteria:
• You have taken a career break of 18 months or more.
• Were ideally at a manager grade or above prior to your career break.
• Background in financial services, accountancy or professional services.

“I was completely daunted about returning to work after almost 10 years being away from a professional environment. However, my advice to those returning to the workplace would be to have confidence in yourself – the experience you gain out of a work environment is still valuable. Technology may be different, the people may be different – but these are all challenges you can overcome, and these are a piece of cake compared to juggling home life and learning about raising children (as was my case!)”

Miranda Smith – Professional Development Senior Manager

“It has been quite the journey to return to the professional services environment after a 4.5 year career break. It takes courage, self-belief, support and encouragement from those around you…everyone I have met so far at Mazars has been supportive and inclusive in making me feel welcome”
