Sage is excited to partner with Career Returners (previously Women Returners) to host an online Launch Event for the ‘Sage Career Returners’ programme. This programme offers permanent employment opportunities for experienced professionals returning to work after a career break, together with tailored return to work support.

The online Launch Event will run from 10:00am – 12:30pm. It is targeted at experienced professionals in Newcastle and surrounding areas, who are interested in a supported return to work opportunity. During the Launch Event, you will find out more about life at Sage, hear from hiring managers and business leaders, listen to a panel of career returners already employed at Sage, and discover more about the roles that are available.

Following the event, the programme will open for applications on 25 January. You do not need to attend the event to apply for the programme.
