Supporting People Return to Work in the Insurance industry

We’re delighted to partner with Zurich Insurance UK, supporting people return to work in the insurance industry after career breaks.

Returning to work with Zurich and Inclusivity


Zurich and Inclusivity both believe having a diverse range of employees leads to diversity of experience and thought, which ultimately benefits our business and our customers.

Zurich is committed to having a workforce that truly represents the communities in which we operate and encourage applicants from all backgrounds and cultures. Diversity, however, means so much more than that and we’re delighted to partner with Zurich Insurance UK, who acknowledge and support people returning to work after career breaks.

Returning to Work after an extended Career Break


While caring for young children is the number one reason for taking a career break, there are many reasons why people take time out from the workplace – and returning can be a daunting experience. Whatever the reason for the break, these returners often have the skills and experience we’re looking for and would be a great asset to to many businesses.

We’re confident that our partnership with Zurich Insurance UK will help us give returners the confidence to take that first step back into the world of work and have a long and fulfilling career.

Don’t just take our word for it though, Suma Selvakumaravel joined Zurich as a Senior Business Analyst in February this year, after a 10-year career break. Read her story of how the returners programme with Inclusivity helped her land this role .

“Returning to work was always on the cards, however I did not take any steps to progress this until a few years ago. It was during the pandemic, that I really started to lose my sense of self. I’ve always thrived in the work environment, and it was important to me to return to work to get my confidence and identity back.” Continue reading here

Returnships or Return to Work Programmes


Specialist organisations, like ourselves match returners with organisations who recognise the value they have to offer and who are ready to provide a supported transition back to a permanent role.

Typically, a return to work programme offers a six month fixed term contract, along with a tailored onboarding and induction process, a buddy and mentor from within the organisation and one-to-one specialist coaching. Candidates usually begin work as a small cohort, with four or more people starting at the same time.
