The candidates will be identified on the basis of final assessment post the skill development program. This initiative aims to attract talented professionals who have taken short-term or long-term careers breaks and now wish to return to the corporate world. ACT Fibernet will assist such individuals in re-entering the workforce and re-defining their career paths.
Returning mothers, individuals who took breaks due to personal or health issues, volunteer work, ex-defence personnel, individuals whose families have been impacted due to Covid or individuals who have taken entrepreneurial breaks etc. are all eligible to apply for this program. A fixed stipend will be provided to selected candidates, and the initiative will be undertaken across all cities for roles in the field of telesales, contact centre support, retention teams, among others. Successful candidates will be assigned a buddy and a mentor to make their transition back to the workplace seamless.

Through our ‘Welcome Back’ program, we aim to encourage individuals to continue their careers and make a comeback in the corporate world. We also strive to create a diverse working environment that encourages people from different backgrounds to contribute their perspectives and passion to our company.
