ZIPWIRE IS THE CONDUIT BETWEEN ORGANISATIONS AND CAREER RETURNERS.

We recognise that Career Returners are not homogenous, and our programs are built to cater for the various stages of the re-entry journey. Not only does this deliver better outcomes, but provides a proven framework to allow organisations, government and industry groups to get onboard to drive this mobilisation at scale.  

OUR MODEL IS BUILT ON A HOLISTIC APPROACH. UNDERSTANDING THE WHY AND THE CONSEQUENCES TO NOT ADDRESSING THIS GROWING NEED:

STARTING WITH RETURNERS:

  • Individual: Lost, low confidence, seeking purpose

  • Family: lack of balance, unpaid labour, overwhelmed

  • Professionally: What’s my personal brand? How do I translate my skill set to current business language?

  • Re-entry: Minimal networks, rigid criteria, recruitment bias

IF THEY DON’T ENTER WHAT IS THE CONSEQUENCE TO BUSINESS

  • Low talent pipeline

  • Poor representation of women across all levels in the business

  • Many women working below competency in nowhere to go roles

HOW DOES THIS IMPACT LEADERSHIP

  • Gender imbalance

  • Lack of diversity in decision making

  • Too few role models

WHAT IS THE FLOW ON EFFECT TO SOCIETY

  • Economically inactive resources

  • Financially dependant demographic

  • Low ROI for government funded education

  • Superannuation for women 47% less than men

  • Women over the age of 50 at the highest risk of living in poverty than any other group in Australia.

  • Mental Health issues
