At Macquarie University, we don't see that being a parent or a carer and having a great career are mutually exclusive. We are committed to helping all employees balance their work demands with their personal life needs.
A wide range of support measures are available for those becoming parents, or caring for children, an elderly parent, or a family member with disability, illness or a chronic medical condition.
On the Carers Hub you'll find information and practical resources to help you access the support you need to meet your caring commitments.
