Returner Work Trial

​The Returner Work Trial is a new scheme offered by NTUC U Family and NTUC's e2i (Employment and Employability Institute) to facilitate the re-entry of economically inactive PMETs (“Returners") back to the workforce, by providing employment opportunities where: 

  1. Employer can assess the returner's fit for ​the job before offering permanent position or an employment contract of 12 months or above.
  2. Returners can plug gaps in their Curriculum Vitae (CV) and refresh the relevance of their skillsets and ease back into work.

Who Are Returners?

Returners are typically returning professionals who have voluntarily taken a career break to care for loved ones (e.g. children, ageing parents, ill relatives), focus on a personal health issue or other reasons, and now wish to return to the workforce.
