Moody’s RE-IGNITE is a paid return to work opportunity designed for individuals wishing to restart their career after a minimum two-year hiatus. Through this program, Moody’s hopes to create a pathway for passionate and dedicated professionals to re-enter the workforce. RE-IGNITE enables participants to hone their individual skills, develop new ones and flourish in their professional journey.
RE-IGNITERS may initially join Moody’s for a 16-week duration, with the goal that they will become permanent employees after successfully completing their temporary assignment, OR they may be hired as a permanent employee from day one under the supported hiring model. In either approach, during the initial 16 weeks, in addition to the work associated with their role, RE-IGNITERS receive coaching & mentoring, leadership development, networking opportunities, and guidance on trainings that could support them in their re-entry. New opportunities to join Moody’s through RE-IGNITE are opened on a rolling application basis throughout the year.

Our biggest asset is our people and as a firm we want to invest in people who challenge convention and embrace new ways of thinking. RE-IGNITE enables us to reach an invaluable wealth of talent and experience, whilst bringing greater diversity into our organisation. The expansion and growth of the program is a very logical next step in our journey.”
