We are driven by a desire to share the value of an international career, and so delighted that our annual Global Australian Awards can now be viewed by all Australians on ABC iview! We are particularly excited by the take-up of this footage in high schools, as a way of bringing to life fascinating and diverse career paths.
And after many focus groups and conversations, as well as in-depth research on challenges for expats returning to Australia, we are excited to launch our new Talent Return Program next month! If you or anyone you know is thinking about returning home, this interactive online program held over 3 short sessions will cover all the key questions / issues.
Finally, there are some particularly interesting events coming up to connect you with Australia wherever you are located. If you want to spread the word about an event you are holding, let us know!
