Legal & General is offering a variety of opportunities for career returners across Group Functions, L&G Retail, L&G General Capital, L&G Investment Management and L&G Retirement Institutional. They recognise that returning to work after a career break may feel daunting but their programme will provide you support you need to transition back into a fulfilling career.

About the Programme

The programme is offering permanent and fixed term contract roles across different business areas. It is targeted at individuals who have taken a career break of 18 months or more (as at June 2023). During this time you may not have participated in any paid work, or you may have chosen to work on a small-scale or self-employed basis to fit around other commitments.

L&G will fully support your transition back into the workplace. Alongside the Career Returners Coaching Programme from Women Returners, you will be allocated with a buddy for your day to day questions. As part of the returner programme, you will also benefit from being part of an internal returner cohort.
