HSBC India has launched an internship initiative, ‘Take Two’ programme to help women professionals resume their career post-sabbatical. ‘Take Two’ programme is aimed at women professionals with at least six years of work experience, who have taken a break from work, HSBC India said in a release issued here.
The 12-week programme will provide a structured, full-time internship programme for the successful participants and will help them to plan for potential future careers at HSBC, it said. It will be piloted in the Hyderabad Global Service Centre (GSC), India. The first batch of 25-30 participants will begin the internship in mid-April 2017.
“There are many experienced women professionals who leave the workforce for personal reasons and may find it a daunting task to restart their careers. ‘Take Two’ programme offers an unique opportunity for women professionals to restart after extended breaks, thus creating supported routes back to work for returners,” HSBC Global Service Centre Global Head of Operations Subir Mehra said.
During the programme, each of the 25-30 participants will be provided with a mentor, who will be an experienced Global Supply Chain (GSC) project manager.
They will also get to participate in various learning and training modules, which will focus on leadership, technical knowledge and confidence building, Mehra said.
