ANZ Senior Economist, Catherine Birch said: “Women with caring commitments have disproportionately benefited from the shift to flexible working arrangements as these can reduce barriers to their participation in the workforce.”
Initiatives such as ANZ’s Return to Work assist this transition by putting flexibility at the forefront. The program supports those returning to the workforce with learning and mentoring opportunities, and flexible work options.
The roles are being offered across various locations including Australia, India, New Zealand and for the first time, the Philippines.
Applications for ANZ’s Return to Work program open on Wednesday 8 March and are open to anyone with relevant previous experience who has taken a career break or has been significantly underemployed for two years or more.
The program offers participants a support structure and learning and development framework to ease the transition back to working life. This framework includes:
- Facilitated induction programs over a two-week period
- Ongoing learning and development opportunities
- A support network comprised of current and previous cohort members, mentors and peers
- Opportunities to learn and/or refresh relevant skills
