Who we are
People and culture

We work with great people to produce great results.

There are too many people to thank for the success of our business. Over the years we’ve sought out the best-of-the-best to come work with us – industry leaders, high-performance individuals and world-class engineers. In one way, shape or form they’re with us because we recognised that special quality they had of an independent drive to succeed. Today we have the most stellar team of working professionals in Australia. They push our business forward through their passion and hard work and are an integral part of our ongoing success. Our team really cares and we’re proud of what we do, we’re highly skilled and focused on making a positive impact on our customers.

Our culture is 100% customer focused, we do nothing without asking the question, “what will this mean for our customers and does it help them?”

We’ve always been dedicated to creating a work culture that strikes the right balance of challenge, enjoyment and reward. The most important challenge we face everyday is the desire to exceed expectations, to push the boundaries of what defines success.

With great challenge comes great reward. Our retention rate is so high because we fully appreciate the work and effort that our employees put into our business. We offer an environment that focuses on what our team really wants – Running Clubs, Social events, My Kitchen Rules cooking competitions and many other events. We reward people who preform exceptionally well with vouchers and exclusive trips away.
