Career Revive

A program supporting businesses to attract and retain women returning to work after a career break.

On this page:

To register to be advised of when the next intake of Career Revive will be available, please email CareerRevive@dese.gov.au 

Medium to large businesses benefit from expert business improvement advice and support provided by KPMG.

Businesses selected to participate in the program receive expert advice through KPMG consultants who will:

  • review the business’ physical workplace, processes, policies and culture to identify potential barriers that might be preventing the attraction of talented women returning to work;
  • offer guidance on how to improve the businesses practices and policies and develop a tailored action plan to establish a ‘supported returner program’ and address other barriers within the business.

To maximise engagement in the program, businesses will need to have capacity to participate in a range of activities including a culture survey, design workshops, KPMG site visit, co-designing an action plan, action learning groups and workshops. Participating businesses will need to nominate an executive sponsor to drive ownership for the program and support implementation of actions. For more information on what will be expected of businesses participating in the program check out the Information for businesses resource below.
