As an employer, we offer the following staff benefits.
Flexible work practices
We support the implementation of flexible work practices and provide a range of options for arranging working conditions so that employees can satisfy family or other responsibilities while at the same time meet the needs and requirements of their employment. These include, Carers Leave, Family and Community Services Leave, Part-Time work, Career Break Scheme, Working from Home and flexible hours. We acknowledge the diversity of our workforce and recognises the family as a stakeholder in organisational operations.
