What work opportunities are there as a mediator?

There is an increasing use of mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution in Australia.  People who undertake mediation training vary to the extent that they find opportunities as a mediator.  Some may find salaried roles within government or not for profit agencies.  Others use their professional networks to build private mediation consultancy businesses, which may include offering other related professional services.  Others pursue further academic studies and careers, or use their mediation skills in roles such as working in human resources.  As with many areas of study, it is very dependent on the individual - on their expectations, skills, flexibility, entrepreneurship and opportunities.
