As Integration Services Manager, IT Department at the Reserve Bank of Australia - Jeanne Atkinson knows a thing or two about working at the cutting edge of technology.
“The area I manage is fast-paced, high volume and with accountability of critical enabling infrastructure. Working with smart, dedicated people I feel that I’m learning and growing all the time. I love it. The RBA aspires to be cutting edge, which means that in IT we keep abreast with the global market. We have mobility, business intelligence, private cloud and infrastructure for digital integrations. We continuously improve by adopting industry standards and best practices and using best -in-class technologies to ensure the organisation always operates at its optimal level,” she says.
Strong focus on career development
The RBA embraces lifelong learning and understands that professional qualifications, accreditations and postgraduate study contribute to a fulfilling career. Employees at any level can apply for support towards career-relevant professional memberships and study, with additional leave and financial assistance provided. Jeanne has experienced this first hand in her information technology role:
“The RBA is very generous with the training it offers to staff. For example, I have completed courses ranging from an internally run leadership development program through to an IT world class program conducted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I am also an active member of the RBA’s Employee Resource Group for Accessibility. Being part of this group means learning about the challenges that people with a disability confront every day. It is also a great example of how leaders and senior executives enable, guide and decide on strategic initiatives that can make a real difference in the workplace,” she explained.
