Allianz helps displaced engineering surveyors with inclusive returners programme

Allianz Engineering Inspection Services has announced the launch of a brand-new scheme in partnership with placement programme STEM Returners, to help engineering inspection workers return to work after a career break.

STEM Returners will source candidates from their population of experienced professionals attempting to return to work after time out, more than half of whom are female and 38% of whom are from black and minority ethnic groups.

“We are delighted to be working with Allianz Insurance to return highly skilled people back into the industry they love. There is a known shortage of skills across STEM industries, and we know that people who have had a career break are faced with an uphill task in getting back into the profession,” STEM Returners director Natalie Desty said.

“This is a fantastic scheme that defines our inclusivity within not just the inspection business, but the wider company,” said Allianz head of inspection Martin Ball. “We are very proud at Allianz for our inclusivity, especially … in the inspection business, where we have been awarded the silver accreditation from the Ministry of Defence for our committed support to armed forces personnel. And now, to team up with STEM Returners to provide a platform for those who want to come back into this great industry, only amplifies our commitment.”
