As an equal opportunity employer who is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive workplace - The Reserve Bank of Australia also places importance on work-life balance and makes sure this is a possibility through its flexible working policies.
Employees across the Bank’s operations are rewarded with access to flexible work arrangements, as well as health and well-being programs - as the RBA understands the contribution that staff wellbeing makes to performance.
Emma Maley, Senior Manager, Enterprise Systems, in the Information Technology Department at RBA has experienced the company's flexible work options first-hand:
“Since I joined the RBA as graduate recruit, I have always felt supported by people who have believed in me and encouraged me to progress. I’m about to have a baby, my third while working here. I was promoted to the role of senior manager while I was pregnant with my first child and have never been aware of any bias. As far as I’m concerned, progression at the RBA is on merit. I have been allowed the flexibility to manage my work and children. After my first child, I returned on a part-time basis for a few months. I took more time off the second time and enjoyed the flexibility of working from home one day a week. I started in my current role when I returned from maternity leave after my second child. It was very different to my previous role. But even though it was a big leap, I have enjoyed the opportunity to broaden my skills. Working in IT at the RBA is never stale because there is so much going on. Almost all IT projects and ongoing support is still done in house, including developing and maintaining our own applications. The RBA also delivers many high-profile industry projects, the majority of which require technology solutions. This means there are challenges and opportunities for anyone who is looking for them.” says Emma Maley.
