Working at AGIG
Australian Gas Infrastructure Group offers a range of benefits to its employees. Our objective through providing these benefits is to support the health and safety of our employees and to employ and maintain an engaged and skilled workforce. In offering these benefits AGIG can continue to achieve its vision of being the leading gas infrastructure business in Australia, including by Being a Good Employer. Our benefits also support our employees delivering their role in a way that is consistent with our values.
AGIG offers competitive market-based salaries for all employees. Employees who work on roster or on site receive generous allowances which are annualised for the employees’ convenience. AGIG encourages all employees to perform at their best. We have a developed a short-term incentive plan (STIP) which is an annual bonus payment based on performance of both AGIG and the employee. The STIP payment is based on 50% company performance and 50% individual performance. From the date of commencement, all permanent full-time and part-time employees will automatically be registered for Salary Continuance Insurance. This provides a replacement income for employees during prolonged periods of illness or injury. The benefit is fully paid by AGIG through a group policy. We believe that our employees are well placed to know the requirements of jobs within AGIG and are aware of colleagues or acquaintances that may be suitably qualified for those roles. AGIG offers a referral bonus to eligible employees if they recommend someone who is then employed on a permanent basis by AGIG and successfully completes their probationary period. AGIG has great rosters for employees working on our pipeline operations teams. Most rostered employees work an 11 day on nine day off roster with all travel occurring during 11 days on.
Health and Wellbeing
We offer all employees and their immediate family free access to our Employee Assistance Program (EAP). The EAP is a totally confidential service, which is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and offers a range of one-on-one counselling and advice on work and personal issues. Each employee is offered six sessions annually. We offer all employees the opportunity to receive the latest flu vaccination on site or obtain a chemist voucher to receive the vaccine. AGIG’s Health, Safety and Environment team release a calendar of events which outlines a different initiative each month for all employees to participate in. We offer all employees access to a free annual health check and a skin check on site.
Work / Life
In addition to your statutory annual leave AGIG gives all eligible employees three days per calendar year as additional leave days. These additional leaves dates can be chosen by the employee to provide greater flexibility on when the employee would like to take leave.
AGIG as an inclusive workplace endeavours to accommodate requests for flexible working such as working from home or nominate start and finish times to allow for family and personal commitments.
We are committed to providing a workplace environment that accommodates the needs of our employees with family responsibilities. Recognising that parenting may be a shared responsibility, we offer entitlements for employees in their capacity as either primary care giver (14 weeks paid parental leave) or in supporting parental roles (two weeks paid parental leave). AGIG offers employees the ability to salary sacrifice an extra week or two of additional annual leave. In recognition of the diversity of our employees, AGIG offers leave for religious events (which may differ from state and national public holidays) the opportunity to swap public holidays for culturally significant days of their request. Under AGIG’s Community Partnership Program we offer all employees an extra day of paid leave to be used when volunteering with any of AGIG’s flagship partner organisations.
Career and Recognition
AGIG has an extensive training program which is coordinated by our in-house training and development team. The team will implement a training path for each employee and will arrange training as required. Training will then be arranged which is necessary for the employee’s role, current capabilities and skills requirements. We also ensure that employees receive all mandatory training required of the employee’s role to ensure AGIG’s strict safety requirements are met. AGIG recognises the importance of employees remaining up-to-date with the requirements of their role and profession and will pay the membership fees of recognised professions. In supporting employees who wish to undertake further study, AGIG offers one paid day per unit per semester for eligible employees to take study leave to attend exams, lectures and tutorials.
We value the long-term contribution of our employees by recognising length of service anniversaries. Tenure based awards for permanent full-time and part-time employees commence at five years of service and continue in five year increments.
