What insiders say about…
I am coordinating telecommunications-related trade activities
A small department where people are given real responsibility and meaningful work. Those who work hard are rewarded. A friendly and social environment to work in.
Based on the Australian Public Service’s ILS (Integrated Leadership System)
Based on the ILS criteria and some subject matter questions; why you want to work there.
Research the company and what they do; it will help you work out if it is the kind of work you are interested in and help you to explain how your capabilities and experience make you suited to the job
I work a 42-45 hour week. Once a month I am on call outside of hours and on weekends. My company are flexible when it comes to work hours, provided expectations are being met.
No bonuses, but pay is very fair.
Most managers are quite accessible and provide good mentoring. Praise and recognition should be done more often. Performance feedback is usually quite useful and identifies areas for improvement.
Range of internal and external opportunities through the Department and team budgets as well as opportunity to access individual study bank for formal education.Join us to bookmark!
