The WTHub returners programme
As we are working on gender diversity it naturally falls to us to analyse the reasons behind the shortfall and one of the issues falls to natural dropout for having families or for family support. For this reason it would be remiss of us not to have a returnship programme.
What is a returners programme?
We provide a returners programme through our sister group Women’s Tech Jobs that is flexible enough to work for both companies and the candidates.
Candidates can be anyone who has had an extended period of time outside of their profession for whatever reason. We extend this to include anyone who is also looking to transfer into the tech industry and has not followed it as a first career path of choice.
A returnship normally takes place as a lower paid internship style limited agreed work, with training if necessary and mentoring support. At the end of the agreed time there should be a Job within the partnered company which both parties would agree to upon success.
We support both parties through:
- Candidate interview
- Managed training if required
- An agreed tailored program to suit
- Partnered PR for our company partners

WTH gave me the support, confidence and contacts to return to work after a childcare career break. I am so grateful for this. ”
