The Program

A ground-breaking initiative powered by a brand collective providing employment opportunities for women who have been out of the workforce for an extended period, and are ready to return.

It is an opportunity to upskill, build confidence and gain valuable and practical experience.


Who can apply?

The 2023 Encoreship roles will be available to anyone who identifies as a woman, is an Australian resident, has had an extended period (1+ years) away from the workforce and is having difficulty re-entering.

Check back for updates in early 2023.

"As a female-founded business comprised of 70% of employees who identify as women, we saw an opportunity to extend ourselves into the community, offering paid work placements and creating a network of women supporting women.

Our goal is to create workplaces where it is the norm that businesses make space for women to re-enter."

- Tina Randello, Alpha-H Chief Commercial Officer
