Working with the Australian Government to unpack the future of work in Australia.




Department of Education, Skills and Employment engaged Relative Creative to assist in the development of the Jobs and Education Data Infrastructure (JEDI) project. JEDI is a tool designed to support Australian employers with workforce planning to prepare for the future of work. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, department employees also required urgent training in online stakeholder engagement.

Opportunity for Futures

Supporting all Australians in the challenges and opportunities that the future of work brings is important to building long-term, sustainable employment opportunities across Australia. Understanding, planning and preparing for the future of work is integral to bringing about just transitions to low-carbon futures.

Our Approach

As strategic design experts, we undertook user-centred design research, including fieldwork, with employers, employment facilitators and business owners from across Australia to understand their workforce planning needs. After conducting interviews, outcomes were closely analysed and a full report was designed and produced. Relative Creative closely collaborated with PricewaterhouseCoopers Indigenous Consulting to undertake and complete this project.


This project involved running a workshop to help participants explore a language which enables jobs and education to be linked by skills, rather than at the occupation and qualification level.


Drawing on knowledge built though the JEDI project, and our extensive experience in remote facilitation and stakeholder engagement, Relative Creative designed and delivered online stakeholder engagement training modules and a guidebook for Department employees to run independently using their software.
