Working with the department

At the department, when it comes to sport and recreation, we talk the talk but we also walk the walk.

We have a management culture that values and encourages participation in sport and recreation, which is supported by our corporate health and wellbeing program and flexible working hours and leave options.

On average, we spend about one third of our waking hours at work, so why shouldn’t we enjoy them?
