At Downer, our approach to diversity is what sets us apart. Our people can be their best by bringing their most authentic selves to work every day.
Our business has a long and proud history in Australia dating back over 150 years. We are committed to ensuring that we have a diverse and inclusive workforce that fulfills the expectations of our employees, customers, communities and stakeholders, while building a sustainable future for our business.
Downer’s success is based on the unique contributions each employee brings to the team. Celebrating these differences helps to engage and motivate our people towards greater innovation, creativity and inclusiveness.
At Downer, we recognise that flexibility is different for everyone. We are committed to creating an environment which allows our people to balance work with other aspects of their life. Depending on the role, we offer a range of flexible working options, from part-time roles and job shares to work-from-home arrangements.
In today’s world it’s been more important than ever to create an agile and sustainable working model, and we work hard to ensure our employees have the right tools and connectivity to perform their jobs.
We support all types of families. Our parental leave reflects this and is available to eligible parents when they welcome a child into their family by birth, surrogacy or adoption.
Pay equity is achieved when people performing the same role are paid the same amount, and people performing different work of equal or comparable value are paid equitably. Downer is a proud WGEA Pay Equity Ambassador and continues to be compliant by meeting its reporting obligations.
We strive to achieve a diverse and skilled workforce that fosters a culture characterised by inclusive practices and behaviours for the benefit of our people. Our inclusive workplace enables our people to feel valued, integrated and included in our team.
Downer is proud to partner with a range of organisations committed to equality in the workplace, including:
