dxw launches returners' programme to access deep pool of untapped talent

Public sector digital specialist dxw digital has launched a Returners’ Programme to help the company build a diverse, inclusive workforce.

According to figures from the Government Equalities Office, at the end of 2017 there were 1.9 million economically inactive women, many of whom have professional or managerial experience.  The same report found just 40 returners’ programmes, which is scratching the surface given the scale of the issue and the amount of untapped talent organisations are missing out on.

dxw’s programme offers return to work opportunities for experienced people who are looking to re-enter the workplace after an extended period of time away. Generally, those who’ve been out of work for two or more years are considered returners.

aInitially this opportunity will only be offered within the company’s London team, with a view to including its Leeds office as the team there grows.

What roles are available?

To begin with, dxw is running a pilot to see how this works for them and the people joining. The company will start by taking on one or two people for three  to six months, depending on the role and circumstances.

They will be offering both client-facing and internal-facing positions, with opportunities available within dxw’s commercial operations, delivery and strategy teams that will be tailored to reflect candidates’ previous experience. Returners will be able to get involved in delivering services to the public sector whilst being fully supported as they refresh, test and build on past skills and experience. From the individual’s first day, they will be assigned a mentor who will be their first point of contact for any support they need. This person will work within the same field, and if the returner is in a client facing role would also be on the same project.

dxw managing director Dave Mann said, “At dxw digital, we're proud to be strong advocates for diversity and inclusion and aim to provide a work environment that's accessible, welcoming, and empowering for all."

"We want everyone to feel supported and included in our wider community."

"The Returners’ Programme is one way we can encourage and support a comfortable way back into the workplace.“
