What if you could return to work at a company that values your skills and experience?

Relaunch your Career is Mastercard’s global return to work program.

The program is designed to enable highly-experienced individuals who were mid-career professionals before taking a break from their careers to re-enter the workplace. We know it can be tough for people to return to work after time away, so our program provides returners with a range of tools and support to help them find their way.

As a returner, you can expect to be fully immersed into the organization. From the start you will have the opportunity to work on a strategic and commercially-focused project, enabling you to build on your skills and previous experience. You will attend an induction program, receive on-the-job training, a buddy, coaching and plenty of opportunities to learn about our business and develop new and existing skills. And at the end of the program, there’s the opportunity to apply for a full-time role.

Who are we looking for?

  • Have previous experience at mid-career level ideally gained in technology, financial services, e-commerce, or professional services organizations
  • Are team players, collaborative, excellent relationship builders and influencers, great problem solvers and adaptable 
  • Have excellent communication and interpersonal skills 

What we offer to help you find your way:

  • A 12-16 week program based on location, on a paid fixed-term contract

  • A structured orientation program 
  • An engaging and stimulating project to work on 
  • A buddy from day one 
  • A manager who will assist you in your transition back to work, with regular check-in sessions

"Trying to get back into the workplace was a mixed experience in many ways. I was keen to challenge myself in a new industry but it was difficult to get recruitment consultants to put me forward for roles, even though I knew I was qualified for them. Many women take a career break after having children, and increasingly men are doing the same. I applied for the Relaunch your Career program at Mastercard, and secured a space. For me, the returnship program was great because Mastercard recognized the value of my experience regardless of my career break."
