Its latest Returnships programme is now open for applications.
The scheme is similar to an internship and offers an initial three month paid placement with a view to securing a permanent position.
The initial scheme last year saw over 90 applicants with a range of skills and experience apply to return to employment after a career break of 18 months or more.
Applicants may have left the industry to run their own business, raise children or care for a relative. They may have had an illness themselves which stopped them from working, but are now well enough to return to work.
MEng graduate, Linda Pritchard, who applied for the 2017 Returnships programme, had had a varied career including six years in the construction industry, 18 years caring for her children, had retrained and worked as a secondary school teacher, and spent a period of time living in Spain.
She said, “I am enjoying working in a professional environment, working as part of a team with a real purpose.
“I take great pride when I tell friends I am working for Morgan Sindall Construction & Infrastructure on the HS2 project and it makes me realise how much I have missed it.”
Morgan Sindall Construction and Infrastructure HR director, Dawn Moore said: “Our scheme is unique in the industry in that we are open to applications from any gender and we do not post particular roles for people to apply to.
“This has meant that we have seen a real range of applicants and can be flexible in the way we create or place people into roles that fit their skills and experience.”
“Many of our applicants, who decided not to proceed with the Returnships programme have since been placed into roles in the business and it’s been very rewarding to see people who may not have previously considered a role in the construction and infrastructure industry thriving in this environment.”
