Looking to return to work? Come and build the future with AWS

Are you ready to relaunch your career after an extended break? If you have been out of the workforce for 12 months or more, and are looking to return to work, then the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Returners Program could be the perfect fit.

The AWS Returners Program recruits into a variety of roles globally and is designed to support individuals with a seamless transition back into a permanent position, providing all the skills and knowledge needed for success.

This kind of program isn’t exactly commonplace in the working world, but at AWS we have our own way of doing things. AWS is a place where thousands of different personalities with the same customer obsession come to turn can’t-be-done into done.


What does the AWS Returners Program offer?

  • Permanent and ‘Returnship’ offerings – AWS is committed to hiring Returners into both long-term permanent ‘supported hiring’ roles, or ‘Returnships’  which may lead to permanent roles. Opportunities will vary by location. You can search and review the current open ‘Returner’ opportunities further below on this page!
  • Flexibility – Flexibility is key in maintaining work-life harmony. As a Returner, your manager will work with you to establish the best and most productive use of your time.
  • Returners support framework – We understand that coming back to work after an extended break can come with challenges. The Returners Program will provide you with robust on-boarding, coaching sessions in your first 6 months, and a peer buddy, all to ease your transition back into work. Your manager will guide you through your development and provide the necessary functional training to bring your skills up to speed.
  • A global environment – An opportunity for you to work with the world’s leading cloud technology, and with talented people from every corner of the globe.
