Encore program

Rejoining the workforce with confidence

Have you been away from the workforce for an extended period and want to resume your career? Do you want to explore a return to full-time employment? Looking for a fulfilling role? Our Encore program can help you obtain the training, experience and coaching you need to rejoin the workforce with confidence.

About Encore

Encore is a paid, eleven-week program that eases the transition back into the workforce. Participants are assigned to a client engagement and have access to Deloitte’s innovative leader development curriculum. Deloitte professionals serve as mentors and help you network and leverage our resources. You also may be considered for a full-time position upon successful completion of the program. If you’re trying to determine what is next for your career, Encore may be a great fit for you. 

Investing in you

Professionals who voluntarily leave the workforce can find that going back to work is daunting. Encore is structured to enable a smooth transition through accelerated learning to help refresh skills, and to provide mentoring, coaching, and a personalized development plan. Encore participants are given opportunities to learn from each other and network with Deloitte professionals during the program.

How to apply

Encore is a great opportunity to restart your professional career, whether it leads to a full-time position at Deloitte or helps you sharpen the skills necessary to appeal to another organization.

The program will run September – December 2018 in Deloitte Consulting LLP. Applications will be accepted in April 2018, and recruiting will be initiated in June 2018. We are looking for professionals who have had a break from employment for two or more years (applicants with fewer than a two-year break from employment will be considered on a case-by-case basis).

Meet Sylvia

In 2006, five years into her first stint at Deloitte, Sylvia left Deloitte when the military relocated her husband Patrick, a US Navy pilot, to rural California, where she opted for a local industry position. After California, they moved again to the high desert of Nevada, placing her hundreds of miles from the nearest Deloitte office. Forced to leave her industry job, she took advantage of this time to start a family while pursuing a professional certification as well as her master’s degree.

Still, Deloitte remained on her radar. So when circumstances took her family back east to the DC area, Sylvia applied to Deloitte’s Encore program. Following it, she immediately stepped into a senior consultant role in Deloitte’s Richmond, Virginia office.
