They Still Call Australia Home

The report, ‘They Still Call Australia Home’ explores the attitudes of Australian business and recruitment decision-makers towards Australians who have travelled and worked abroad. It also captures the job-seeking experiences of Australians who have worked, or are working, overseas and navigating their return to Australia. A key highlight from the report’s findings is the need for Australian businesses and recruiters to broaden their search to include expats returning home to Australia.

Investing in the next generation of Australian talent

As a part of the Advance Awards, we offer the chance for final-year University students to get a substantial leg up to kick-start their careers. We carefully match the successful applicants with one of our Industry Award Winners, for a 12-month, one-on-one Mentoring Program, to develop skills for professional clarity, self-awareness, and a successful career.

From entrepreneurs to artists and everyone in between, we are on a mission to uncover global Australians achieving extraordinary things - join us in Sydney on the 17th of October to celebrate these extraordinary individuals.
