Help us to increase diversity in the workforce

A diverse workforce is one of the most important ways to ensure innovative ideas, skill sets and solutions. WorkUP Queensland is embarking on a new Grow the Workforce project by mapping the many different pathways into working in the domestic and family violence, sexual assault and women’s health and wellbeing sector.

The project will provide resources to assist in reaching out to and recruiting people from outside the sector. To do this, we need your help!

Your employment path into the sector 

We are in search of examples from staff in the sector who have come from a range of backgrounds, such as a different discipline or part of the community sector. If this is you, or someone you know, we would love to hear from you! 

While we are looking for real case studies that show how rewarding it can be to work in the sector – and the range of skills and disciplines that can be used to succeed in this work – we are flexible about using names and images. 

Student placements 

Student placements can help trainees to develop a passion for work in the sector and can assist organisations to find staff.

If you have had positive experiences of student placements, please let us know. We would love to share positive stories of student placements that have supported your workforce development.

If you can help, please reach out to Georgina at WorkUP at
