Parents & Caregivers at Deloitte


Here at Deloitte, we know that families come in all different shapes and sizes. As one of the first companies in Australia to be certified as a Family Inclusive Workplace, we're proud of our family-friendly culture and how we support and empower our people at each stage of their caring responsibilities.

From family planning, parental leave, returning to work, families with school-aged children and caring for others, we're here every step of the way to help make things a little easier. Learn more about our Deloitte Families flexible working options here.

We know that whether you are a parent (including birth, adoptive, surrogate, foster and same-sex parents), spouse, carer or friend, family is important to each of us.

With that in mind, we aim to provide parents and individuals who have caring responsibilities a range of flexibility and choice in how you care for your family.

No more maternity, paternity, primary or secondary carer labels.

Our award-winning* Parental Leave is available to everyone.

Parental Leave

Our policy is inclusive of all types of families including birth, adoptive, surrogate, foster and same-sex parents. We encourage all parents, regardless of gender, to take an active role in the caring responsibilities for their families.

In a snapshot our policy offers all new parents:

  • 18 weeks paid leave, including superannuation
  • Continuing superannuation payments during unpaid parental leave for up to 34 weeks
  • Extended time to take parental leave, with the option to spread their parental leave over 36 months and take it flexibly
  • Co-parenting - both parents may access paid and unpaid parental leave at the same time, or at different times
  • Everyone has access to external coaching to help with their transition back into the workplace, and opportunity to join Deloitte Parents Network
