What insiders say about…
I work in infrastructure regulation. I'm involved in a range of activities - some long term, such as negotiating open access contracts with owners of national significant monopoly infrastructure. Some short term - such as providing advice to State Government departments about state infrastructure regulation or asset privatisations.
Perth office- little socializing amongst colleagues, teams seem strained at times.
Compared with other public service job applications, this one wasn't too bad. It involved three stages: (1) application, including answering a couple of short answer questions (2) assessment centre, including an interview, a written task and a group task (3) online aptitude test Applications were then assessed based on performance in all areas, with the assessment centre stage weighted the most. During the interview, staff were really friendly and encouraging.
The interviewers asked broad questions about what and why the organisation does what it does.
Read through the organisation website (both ACCC and AER) and learn about what they do. Learn about what the priority areas are for that year and peruse news items (either on the website or google) that relate to those priority areas. Think about how the work of the organisation relates to whatever study background you have (ie economics, finance, law). Prepare practice answers and practice saying them aloud.
The organisation's EA provides for flex hours - meaning I can fit my work hours around a flexible start/finish time.
There are no bonuses at my organization. I believe I could be working in a private firm for a lot higher pay, but I would be less likely to have the benefit of a good work life balance.
We can apply for study allowance.
Generally, the managers are very personable and approachable and make good mentors. They have an interest in nurturing employees' careers and helping them to excel. They give great feedback and recognition.
The organization provides a lot of training, from seminars on the work we do, inviting speakers to talk about their organization's work, seminars on cultural awareness and diversity.
There is a number of opportunities to apply for higher positions.
We have a lot of seminars on diversity with respect to women, culture, LGBTI and disabilities. The organization is very committed to ensuring equality and diversity, such as a requirement that a recruitment panel be at least 51% female.Join us to bookmark!
