UK Supported Hiring Returner Programme Market Data

Our collated data shows that there were 5 supported hiring programmes running in 2017 and 9 in 2018.

Notes: This list aims to collect statistical data on the growth of the UK Supported Hiring Programme* market, bringing returners into permanent roles with transition support. It does not include other forms of returner programme, such as returnships and corporate returner events (if you’re a returner, or want a broader picture, see the range of returner programmes here). This list includes supported hiring programmes bringing in more than 1 person (ie. NOT supported hiring for one-off buses-as-usual roles). These are programmes of which we are aware.
