Emerging Professionals Network

You’re invited to join FCB’s new Emerging Professionals Networka network designed for professionals emerging in their fields who are passionate about developing their knowledge and skills on all things employment and industrial law.

“The Network” will kick off with an informative seminar series commencing on 11 August 2021. We hope to deliver our seminars in-person shortly, but for now we will commence the series virtually.

The seminar series will focus on topics of interest to professionals in the early to intermediate stages or their career and anyone who simply wants to better understand Australia’s often complex industrial relations regulatory framework.

The seminars will offer practical learning while providing an opportunity for professionals to meet and interact with other emerging professionals in the human resources and operations fields.

Seminars will include a mix of panel discussions, case studies, opportunities to share experiences, and other initiatives designed to support career development and knowledge in employment and industrial relations laws.

There are limited places available, so don’t miss out on registering for the first sessions in the series. If you have any questions about The Network seminar series, please do not hesitate to contact us at info@fcbgroup.com.au.
