At Nomura diversity is critical to our success and we harness the value and perspectives that our employees different work and family experience and backgrounds bring to our firm.

Your past experience is invaluable to us.

Which is why, in partnership with Inclusivity Partners, we are launching our first returners programme for Technology professionals.

Who Are We?

Nomura is a financial services group with an integrated global network spanning over 30 countries with head offices in Asia. By connecting markets East & West, we service the needs of individuals, institutions, corporates and governments through our four business divisions: Retail, Asset Management, Wholesale (Global Markets and Investment Banking), and Merchant Banking.

What is on offer?

The Technology Returner programme will be based in our London office and is designed for experienced IT professionals who are ready to build on previous skills and experience and want to embrace new opportunities ahead. The paid programme commences on April 29th and finishes on the 19th July 2019. Whilst there is no guarantee of a permanent position, there will be genuine consideration for an ongoing opportunity at the end of the programme depending on business needs and availability of appropriate opportunities.
This programme is a great opportunity to learn new skills, build a new network and gain exposure to exciting projects in a truly global financial services organisation.

This is a really exciting opportunity for a highly experienced career returner to join the Chief Technology Office and work directly with the EMEA Chief Technology Officer. 

Utilising your previous senior experience and strong knowledge on all things Tech, you will support the CTO in meeting his strategic objectives. This could cover anything from identity governance, creating policies, reviewing of software development lifecycles and associated processes, through to the facilitation of global projects from a business architect perspective. The role requires in-depth knowledge of technology as a business function, and whilst you will not be hands-on involved in technical work, a strong understanding technically will certainly be beneficial.

The ideal Returner will have formed their career in either software development or in an architecture environment, before developing strong project management experience. Key to this role will be the ability to form relationships across many business units and to liaise with confidently with people who are geographically dispersed. A keen interest in new technologies, platforms, architectures and frameworks will be highly beneficial.

This role is for 4 or 5 days a week.​

Please include a cover sheet on the front of your CV telling us a little about yourself and don't forget to clearly show your career break of 18+ months.
