Career Returner’s Programme 2024

If you’re looking for your first job following a career break we might have the perfect role for you.

We recognise that there is a large untapped talent pool of high-calibre men and women who have taken time out of their careers for a variety of different reasons, who are now looking to return to the workplace.

Therefore, in 2018 the Bank collaborated with Career Returners, a specialist return-to-work organisation, to create the first Bank of England Career Returners Programme to attract and support returning professionals.

The programme offers returners support throughout their fixed term contracts and has been a huge success with returners joining a wide range of Directorates and a consistently high conversion rate from FTC to permanent contracts. 

You can find some key details below:

  • Applicants must complete an assessment process in order to gain a role.
  • To qualify applicants must have had a career break of two or more years.
  • Flexible working options will be available.
We’re delighted to be launching our latest Career Returner Programme for 2024/25 in Spring of 2024. Further details shall follow in due course.
