What we offer

We offer our staff a number of benefits, including flexible work arrangements, to ensure a happy work-life balance and fantastic training and career development opportunities. Our staff are rewarded for their commitment to the organisation with discounted gym memberships, discounted parking fees, a generous study assistance program, flu vaccinations and skin checks (offered to our employees free of charge) and a number of salary sacrificing options.

Council recognises that our employees want a workplace where they have the opportunity to use and develop their skills and receive recognition for their contribution. For our employees who go above and beyond and provide outstanding services, we acknowledge them with personalised rewards. Our employees will be awarded instantaneously for high work performance, demonstration of Council values and/or significant contribution to the team, department and Council. We also recognise and acknowledge the long-term service of our staff and celebrate the contribution of individuals at specified service milestones. These milestones are acknowledged with a gift from 10 years of continuous permanent full-time or part-time service for every 5 years.

Our learning and development program is extensive and provides great opportunities for all staff to develop a variety of technical and professional skills that support their success at Council.

We have developed a culture with transparent and accessible communication channels between staff and management. Staff are engaged regularly via Employee Engagement Surveys and are encouraged to seek clarification and provide feedback on any council and organisational matters at any time. SImilarly, we encourage staff to make suggested improvements and to nominate initiative which provide benefits to the organisation and community.

We are committed to the development of the skills, knowledge and talents of our staff to support Georges River Council’s overall capabilities.
