This job is fulltime- 9-5, 5 days a week. However it was very flexible in terms of that if you came in earlier, you could leave earlier. Understandably there are occasions where you need to leave the office at earlier times for appointments and emergencies, and it does not get questioned which is great- you are able to do so.
There are many opportunities to be promoted based on your Performance Development Plan (Employer Appraisal) - every year there is a talent review, which may open opportunities for employees to interview for another position. On weekly newsletters there are also job opportunities advertised. To move up the ranks, you need to do your job well, be recognised for it, and ensure that you are well connected and liked within the work place.
The open plan aspect of the office is great, as people are encouraged to walk around and talk to each other. Facilities are nice too however the location was always less than preferable for many. Ermington is a decent location however as it is quite far away from central places such as the CBD, it can be less than ideal for many.
