Career Break Policy

If you take leave from work for at least 6 months, then you can apply for a reduction in your membership fees.

Your career break may be for parental leave, or you might be taking care of your own, or family member’s health. You may be unemployed, gone back to studying full-time, doing voluntary work overseas or in other circumstances that we may consider.

While you are on a career break, you’ll receive all your usual membership benefits to keep you up to date with what’s happening in the profession, such as receiving newsletters, attending events at reduced member rates, using the Member Benefit App and login access to the website.
