We provide a strong support network and a challenging working environment, combined with flexible working conditions.
Family-friendly working conditions
We offer maternity and paternity leave dependent on years of service, and encourage staff to return to work when they are ready, through the provision of part-time work and job share opportunities.
We provide 9.5% of the annual base rate as a superannuation contribution. When you commence contributions of 6% of your salary (compulsory after 12 months of employment), we will increase their contribution to 12%, thereby matching your contributions $2 for every $1.
Flexible working conditions
We encourage a healthy work-life balance and can negotiate flexible working arrangements that support this. The standard working hours for the office-based workforce is a 19-day month and for the outdoor workforce, a nine-day fortnight.
The wellbeing of our employees is a priority. Programs to foster employee fitness and wellbeing are regularly run. In addition to this we provide an Employee Assistance Program and Queensland Country Health offers a corporate rate to employees.
As one of the largest employment providers in the region, we offer long term employment opportunities and encourages staff to build a career in Local Government. Some staff have worked with us for over 30 years and have moved through various career paths while maintaining employment within the region.
Diverse training opportunities
Both in-house and externally run training programs are regularly undertaken to support staff in their roles. We provide learning and development opportunities in the form of cadetships, apprenticeships, plant operator tickets, customer service skills, leadership skills and much more.
Employees receive five weeks annual leave per year.
Safety focused culture
We are committed to maintaining a safety focused culture, managed by our Workplace Heath and Safety Management Plan.
We offer a variety of allowances. The value and types of allowances is dependent on your role and personal circumstances.
