Societe Generale launches empowering returnship programme in Asia Pacific

Societe Generale launched an initiative to help professionals re-integrate into the workforce after an extended career break. It is designed for individuals who have been out of the workforce for more than 2 years and have minimum 8 years relevant professional experience prior to the break.

The Societe Generale Returnship programme offers participants a 6-month paid working opportunity in several locations across Asia Pacific. During the programme, returners will fully integrate and work along Societe Generale teams, uplifting their skills and knowledge in a flexible yet empowering working environment.

The programme includes a tailored support for returnees to develop their full potential through training and mentoring, and creates opportunities for the future as upon completion, it can lead to the possibility to join Societe Generale’s teams permanently.



“Societe Generale is an equal opportunity employer, and we hire professionals who have been on an extended career break in our traditional recruitment process. Still, we felt the need to emphasise how overlooked this pool of talent can be and to accelerate the return to the workforce of more high-calibre talent through our Returnship programme. We strongly believe this programme will also support our drive for diversity in many ways – in terms of gender as this programme can support the talent who are on a career break for various reasons, but also in terms of age and background,” said Mukta Arya, Head of Human Resources, Asia Pacific
