Julia Richardson

Associate Professor of HRM, Curtin University

I have a doctorate in International Human Resource Management and have pursued an international career in the corporate and education sectors in Japan, UK, NZ, Canada and Australia. My key area of expertise is careers and particularly career management strategies in contemporary labour markets, e.g. managing job loss, career success, career change, career self-management and control. I also have expertise in managing flexible work practices/telecommuting and the impact of new working practices on individual and organizational performance, individual well-being and career development. My current research also incorporates issues in work-life balance e.g. achieving work-life balance and organizational work-life balance strategies. I have three major research projects at present focusing on the following: career transitions of professional athletes out of sport, flexible work practices, work-life balance.
