Why we’ve launched a Return to Work programme

We believe that our business will only succeed through having talented people. We recognise that many extremely talented people will at some stage pause their careers and we want to create new opportunities for this talent pool to reignite their careers and join our organisation. We’ve partnered with Inclusivity to create a programme that will offer you full support to get yourself back up to speed in a friendly and welcoming environment. 

Why choose Ramboll to reignite your career

At Ramboll we truly believe in creating and embracing an inclusive culture, we value diversity and encourage individuals to be themselves where knowledge sharing and learning together is part of our collective journey. Underpinned by our strong values and ethics, our workplace allows everyone to develop, innovate, create and flourish to deliver outstanding consultancy services to our clients.

We strive to support all colleagues throughout their life and provide an extensive array of benefits to support families, employee and family health and wellbeing, flexible/dynamic working with strongly established networking groups. To be truly family friendly we recognise not all people will want to return to their careers on a full-time basis. This is why we are incredibly welcoming of those seeking both part-time and full-time returner opportunities.

Who is the Returner programme for

Returner opportunities are available to those who have been on a career break of 18+ months from the time of application. We will also consider those who have had part-time work that has been non-career related and who are looking to reignite their professional career.

How does the programme work

The Returners programme starts on Monday 10th January 2022  and lasts for six months until Friday 8th July 2022. You’ll be part of a cohort of fellow returners. These paid opportunities will give you the opportunity to put to use your past career expertise and to bring yourself back up to speed with the current market. As a fixed-term employee of the firm you will be eligible for benefits and holiday leave. Whilst there is no guarantee, it is the goal of the programme that you will be able to secure a permanent position at the end of the six months. Opportunities are available for those seeking full-time work and also part-time. In some situations candidates may be offered to start sooner, should that be of interest, and match business needs.
