Entain x McLaren Racing
Entain and McLaren F1 Team have launched a joint Returnship programme for women to return to careers in the world’s most exciting industries through roles in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
While the representation of women in STEM is steadily increasing, there remains a significant gender imbalance – in the UK, just 26% of STEM graduates are women, and only 24% of the STEM workforce are women. There is an urgent need to open more opportunities for women to pursue careers in the field, and help both women and men thrive equally in STEM.
As 26% of sports bettors globally are now female, and F1 continues to experience a rise in female fans, with approximately 40% of fans now female, it has become even more important for both companies to reflect the customer experience by having a diverse workforce. The Returnship programme is another step in the right direction to making this change.
Entain is a FTSE100 sports betting, gaming and interactive entertainment company. As the home of household names like PartyPoker, Foxy Bingo and Ladbrokes, to name just a few, we bring moments of excitement to millions of customers every day.
We operate 27 brands in over 30 different markets across the World. Our BetMGM brand in the US is powered by our top-class tech and is making huge waves in the US. Technology is key to our success, and at Entain you’ll find developers of all stripes, cybersecurity specialists, and IT gurus.
We’re leading the industry in bold new directions – and it’s our diverse and talented team that make this possible. Believe us, the best is yet to come. For our customers. For our future. For your career.
The McLaren Racing story began in 1963, and from day one we set an incredible pace. Today, we’re continuing our Fearless Pursuit of Better. And we’re building on the legacy you’ll find in every photograph. Through each team member, every day. And wherever you join us, you’ll play your part in our story.
We believe performance is about creating an environment where our people can thrive, whatever their role. It’s the kind of place were everyone is encouraged to step outside of their comfort zones, to try something different, to discover new paths, to begin new journeys.
To think fearlessly. And to work fearlessly.
Whatever your path, the Entain x McLaren F1 Team Returnship aims to support women back into technology, data and engineering roles after a period of unemployment, underemployment or reskilling. Read more about the programme and apply by clicking below
