Fidelity International launches returner programme in APAC

Returners will get a professionally paid placement of six months.

UK-based investment solutions and services provider Fidelity International has launched the Returner Programme in Asia Pacific, designed to help experienced candidates find new jobs in investment management after a career break.

Launching in partnership with Women Returners, the programme would target those with backgrounds in equity research, multi asset, fixed income investing, product development, and sustainable investing, according to the firm.

Applications will be open for those with a career break of 18 months or more in Hong Kong, Singapore, amongst others.

“Successful returners will be offered a professionally paid placement of six months, with the strong possibility of a permanent position at the end,” said Fidelity International.

Returners will also get virtual coaching support from Women Returners, as well as a professional mentor and a buddy who will aid in their professional development.

“The Returner Programme is a great opportunity for us to reach a talented and skilled group of professionals who might be facing hurdles to rejoin the workforce,” said Paras Anand, chief investment officer for Asia Pacific. “This programme ensures we are being deliberate about hiring returners and that we have structures in place to support them and set them up for success at Fidelity.”

In the United Kingdom, Fidelity International has hired more than 20 returners into mid-senior level roles in just four years.
