Career breaks with Frontier Australia Career Breaks

Taking a Career Break with Frontier

Many people choose to take some time out from their career to assess their options and to have a well-earned break. With over 300 projects around the globe, including work placements of all kinds, we specialise in finding the right career break for you.

Why take a career break?

Perhaps you are thinking about a change of career, or a move into a different sector. Maybe you would like to offer some of your time and experience to help kids in developing countries. Or perhaps you would just like to spend a few weeks doing something completely different, such as gaining your scuba diving qualifications and taking part in marine conservation work.

A longer career break gives you the chance to see life from a different perspective, and to decide where you want to be and what you want to do. A shorter break can just be like an inspiring vacation, and needn’t have any impact on your current career.

Where can you go on a career break?

Our projects cover hundreds of countries in five continents. From Costa Rica to Tanzania, from Madagascar to Fiji, we can offer a huge range of locations. With our volunteer projects covering everything from conservation to teaching, medicine and journalism, you can develop your current skills as you face new challenges in a different country. Or you could gain new qualifications in a fresh field.

For those looking for a break and a taste of adventure, we offer Ethical Adventure Trails – Professionally guided adventure travel tours through South or Central America or South East Asia, taking in some of the most amazing historical and natural wonders as well as a variety of adventure sports and activities.

To find out more about career breaks, check out some of the placements below. Fill out an online application form and one of our volunteer advisors will give you a call back to find the best placement for you.
