Looking to return to work? Come and build the future with AWS

Are you ready to relaunch your career after an extended break? If you have been out of the workforce for two or more years, and are looking to return to work, then AWS’s program could be the perfect fit.

The Amazon Web Services (AWS) Returners Program recruits into a variety of roles globally and is designed to support individuals with a seamless transition back into a permanent position, providing all the skills and knowledge needed for success.

This kind of program isn’t exactly commonplace in the working world, but at AWS they have their own way of doing things. AWS is a place where thousands of different personalities with the same customer obsession come to turn can’t-be-done into done.

Roles are updated on a rolling basis so do keep checking the website link below.

What does the AWS Returners Program offer? 

  • A global environment – An opportunity for you to work with the world’s leading cloud technology, and with talented people from every corner of the globe.
  • Permanent and returnship offering – AWS is committed to hiring Returners into an option of long-term permanent roles, or returnships which may lead to permanent roles. Opportunities will vary by location.
  • Flexibility – Flexibility is key in maintaining work-life harmony. As a Returner, your manager will work with you to establish the best and most productive use of your time.
  • Returners support framework – AWS understands that coming back to work after an extended break can come with challenges.
