An Opportunity To Return To Work With Confidence And Direction

Join Sage in Newcastle on May 15th for an opportunity not to be missed

You’ve not been out of the loop, you’ve been in training! If you can negotiate with three-year-olds; you’ve been taking special care of clients in a charity shop; if you’ve been serving your country in the forces – we could use your skills. Return to work with Sage.

Where Is It?

Come along on May 15th to our free open day at North Park in Newcastle. You’ll learn more about Sage and more about how valuable your skills are to us and other employers in the North East.

You’ll leave with a new confidence about going back to work, a support network, and loads of fresh ideas. Return to work with confidence, support and direction.

The Sage Foundation

Sage’s philanthropic division Sage Foundation is behind the return to work programme we’re calling Pathways. Sage Foundation VP Debbie Wall explains:

“Pathways is for people who took a break from work, perhaps to raise children or care for others, and now they’re a little overwhelmed at the idea of picking up their careers again. They might be worried that technology has moved on, that jargon has moved on. They might be concerned that the working hours will interfere with their caring obligations. Perhaps they are worrying about being able to juggle the needs of their family with the requirements of an office job.”

“Pathways embraces the new skills they have learned outside the workforce, provides the support they might need to regain confidence, and updates their skill set through training.”

“Sage Foundation believes in helping women, in particular, into secure and rewarding employment, but Pathways is open to men too. We hope it will also appeal to the veteran community, both female and male.”

About Sage Foundation

Sitting at the heart of Sage Group plc, and led by CEO Steve Hare, Sage Foundation unifies colleagues and partners in a global programme of social change philanthropy, transforming lives to support economic stability and social equality.

All 13,000 colleagues across 23 countries are encouraged to dedicate five paid days a year to charities close to their hearts, through voluntary work and fundraising challenges.

Our colleagues dedicated 24,084 volunteer days to Sage Foundation last year, worth £2.8 million to our beneficiaries. We made 162 philanthropic grants in 2018. In addition to this, CEO Steve Hare has called on global colleagues to achieve $2 million for their charities through fundraising events of their choice.

In particular, we take action to increase opportunities for fulfilment among

  • young people,
  • women,
  • and military veterans

to drive innovation, enhancing access to education, workforce development and exposure to entrepreneurship.

We also proudly facilitate a culture of fast, responsive support for local need. Whether in the aftermath of forest fires in California, drought in South Africa, terror incidents in London, or a sudden shortage of help at a local food bank, we empower our colleagues to work with Sage Foundation to lend a hand.

Our strategic objectives align to six of the 17 United Nations sustainable development goals: education for all; gender equality; decent work opportunities; economic growth; innovation and meaningful partnerships.

You want to return to work, here is your opportunity to do it with an organisation who care.
