London Return to Work Programme 2019
In today's world, successful careers are fluid and often do not follow a traditional path. We see great potential in professionals who have taken a career break for two years or more and are now looking to re-engage and return to permanent employment.
As part of Morgan Stanley's on-going efforts to support experienced professionals throughout the various stages of their careers, the Firm will be running its annual Return To Work programme in London. This programme is a paid 12-week internship for professionals who have taken a career break and are looking to re-enter the workforce on a permanent basis.
Placement and Duration
The programme is based principally at the Firm's London offices and will begin on Monday 25th February 2019. Participants will be placed based on their skills and interests. A limited number of opportunities exist across the Firm in Corporate Services, Global Capital Markets, Firmwide Marketing, Finance, Human Resources, Internal Audit, Legal and Compliance, Operations, Research, Risk Management, Sales and Trading and Technology.
During the programme, participants will work and network with colleagues and senior leaders from across Morgan Stanley and receive training and support to refresh their skills. Participants may receive an offer of permanent employment at the end of the programme, but this is not guaranteed.
