Want to get back to work? We've got your back.

We know that your expertise and experience is unique to you, so we aren’t offering a one-size-fits all approach. We'll be guided by your career to date when looking for the perfect placement opportunity - because your return to work should work for you.

How we will support you

Getting you back in the game

On our programme, you'll be supported 1-to-1 by a transitional coach specialising in return to work, as well as a workplace buddy and mentor to help you navigate the business.

Testing and improving your skills

Your placement manager will set you clear, evolving objectives and provide you with regular support and feedback. You'll also complete a group project to address a live business challenge.

Working flexibly

Staggered hours, part time - what it looks like may vary but hybrid working comes as standard.


You'll get to know senior executives through 1-to-1 coffee chats that will give you unrivalled insights into our business and invaluable professional connections.

Future Opportunities

At the end of the Returnship programme, we’ll discuss your performance and progress. We are running this scheme to discover future talent for our businesses, so where possible, we’ll discuss permanent role opportunities.


Then it's time to take your next step. We'd love to hear from you. Sign up today to start a new phase of your career with Entain and McLaren F1 Team.
