Funding Circle has launched a new initiative to bring people back into full-time employment.
The career comeback opportunity is aimed at people who have been on a career break for six months to two years.
Currently, the peer-to-peer lending platform has two job vacancies listed under this opportunity, one as a collections executive and the other as a software engineer.
Applicants must still have the relevant skills and experience for the job advertised.
“Funding Circle is excited to launch its very own career comeback opportunity!” Funding Circle said in a job advert under this initiative.
“The purpose of this is to support talented professionals in re-joining the workplace after an extended career break.
“Are you in search of some guidance, support, and knowledge to really help you go further?
“Funding Circle is here to offer that, and help you regain traction within the workplace. We believe everyone is made to do more, and that’s why we are launching this scheme across different areas of our business.”

Outside of this initiative, the platform has several job vacancies for its software engineer and collections teams.
Last month, Funding Circle announced its collections and recoveries team is now bigger than it was before the Covid-19 crisis to deal with a rise in borrowers requesting repayment plans.
The lender said its team was 80-strong, as it recognised it would need to train and reassign staff to deal with increased contact from borrowers struggling to repay loans.
