Glide – Relaunch is a paid internship-to-full-time program for talented professionals returning to the workforce after taking a voluntary career break of at least 2 years. For available roles see below.
Glide Relaunch provides the necessary resources to support and accelerate your exposure at Wells Fargo with a programme manager-led experience that includes a skills refresh, training, curriculum and senior networking opportunities; giving you the chance to learn from successful leaders at Wells Fargo who will share their expertise and knowledge to help you become a future leader.
You will develop an understanding of Wells Fargo’s unique values and culture, which you will experience first-hand in your interactions with highly talented team members. This programme experience is woven throughout your internship as you work and engage with the line of business for the full-time employment opportunity, which based on performance during the internship period, you may be considered for at the end of the eight weeks.
Our 8-week programme will run from September through November 2021.
The programme was envisioned to address a specific issue, which for years has been the cause for an imbalance in the workforce composition worldwide; the loss of vast talent pools in the form of people unable to continue their careers due to personal commitments.
This 8-week programme offers support, training, and resources needed to relaunch careers as leaders at Wells Fargo.
Following a structured training and an orientation session, you’ll network with your peers and Wells Fargo leaders while you refresh or develop your skills and knowledge of our financial products and services.
Then, you’ll join a team of experienced Wells Fargo team members for on-the-job training, mentorship, and development.
The goal of the programme is to hire participants who meet performance expectations into similar full-time roles within Wells Fargo following the internship.
Be Northern, and they’ll help you be you.
Right now, Northern are doing something pretty amazing. As one of the UK’s largest train operators, they’re creating the kind of business that anyone can picture themselves being part of, whatever their background, skills, experience, or lifestyle.
It’s the kind of place where you can be ambitious, be determined, be flexible, and be your best. It’s where you won’t just be Northern – you’ll be able to be you.
And if you’re looking to return to a career after an extended break, it could be the perfect place for you to rediscover your skills, experience and expertise. That’s because you’ll find roles in everything from train driving, to control, customer service, engineering and more. Not to mention lots of training and development, mentorship programmes with Women in Rail, a commitment to paying a living wage, Disability Confident status, and Investors in People accreditation.
And all in a business that’s creating a brand new, diverse, inclusive, equal, and flexible future for everyone who works there.
So, if you haven’t thought about working for a train company before, it’s time to start looking at Northern in a different way. It’s time to be you.
