About the Programme

Each role is a 6-month contract with full benefits and the intention to continue into a permanent role upon successful completion.  Convex is based in London and open to flexibility.

They’ll buddy you up with another ‘Convexian’ to help you successfully transition back to work and you’ll take part in a Career Returners Coaching Programme from Women Returners for ongoing support. Convex also offers training to their managers to ensure they understand the challenges facing a returner, so they ensure you have the best possible experience as they recognise it can be a daunting time.

You’ll receive a highly competitive salary & reward package (including 30 days holiday per annum, 10% pension employer contribution, 5 x life assurance, Private Medical for you and your dependants plus an enhanced suite of family friendly policies).
