You will work full-time over the 20 week programme, gaining valuable experience and insight into your business area. Working closely with the team will enable you to bring your experience and skills to real, live, projects and strategic initiatives right from day one.

As part of the programme you will also gain exposure to the wider Macquarie business and senior leaders via events and lunches. Coaching from Women Returners, a mentor and a buddy will all provide additional support and guidance for your return to work. To enable you to focus on re-building your career Macquarie will also provide access to free emergency child and elder care to help you manage any commitments you may have outside of the workplace.
