Relaunch your career at Mastercard

Mastercard operates the world’s fastest payment processing network; connecting consumers, financial institutions, merchants, governments and businesses in more than 210 countries and territories. As a global technology company in the payments space, they thrive on innovation. The products they create change the way the world pays and gets paid.

Getting back into a career you love: Priceless

Mastercard is dedicated to cultivating an environment for all employees that respects their individual strengths, views and experiences.

As part of their efforts towards building a diverse and inclusive workforce, they are introducing Relaunch your career, their first return-to-work programme.

The programme is designed to enable experienced people who were working at mid-career level before taking a break from their careers to re-enter the workplace.

However, Mastercard knows it can be tough for people to return after time away, so their programme will provide people with the tools and support to help them find their way.

Returners can expect to be fully immersed into the organisation for a period of 12 weeks. From the start they will have the opportunity to work on a strategic and commercially-focused project, enabling them to build on their skills and previous experience. They will receive on-the-job training, a buddy, coaching and plenty of opportunities to learn about their business and develop new and existing skills.

And at the end of the 12 weeks, there’s the opportunity to apply for a permanent role.

What's Mastercard looking for?

Relaunch your career is for people who:
- have taken a career break of two or more years

- have previous experience at mid-career level ideally gained in technology, financial services, e-commerce, and professional services organisations
- are team players, collaborative, excellent relationship builders and influencers, great problem solvers and adaptable

What Mastercard offers to help you find your way:

- an engaging and stimulating project to work on
- a buddy and mentor from day one
- a manager equipped in helping people return to work, with regular check-in sessions
