Re-start your career, get in touch 

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

Are you looking to return to work after a career break or seeking to restart your career in an inspiring, flexible and supportive place to work?

Our Sage Pathways programme is designed to help people who have held professional or military roles in the past to join the workplace in a flexible and supported way.

Sage Pathways is a ‘supported-hiring’ programme where you will be recruited into a real position within Sage and provided with training and support that can ultimately lead to a variety of career pathways.

A mentor will guide you on the job so you will have lots of support and direction.  You will also be introduced to a Sage ‘buddy’ to help you navigate the business and your return to work (as we know that can be the tough bit).  Most importantly, you’ll be part of a community of people returning to work, so you’ll never feel alone.

Working with us

Supporting professionals returning to work through our Sage Pathways programme is just one way of showing just how important people are to us. We love our people, and they love us back; whether due to our development culture, the volunteering days, flexible working or just the fun our colleagues have at work. We are incredibly proud of our supportive, engaging, creative and forward-thinking business.  There really can’t be a better place to return to work!

Starting with us

If you are one of the successful new starters, your first day will introduce you to life at Sage and you will meet your fellow new starter colleagues. Your first week will be focused on providing you with that core foundation knowledge of your supported skill which we will build on week by week.

You will also meet your mentor, line manager and buddy and be provided with a full overview of your training programme.
