“I was initially attracted to an industry undergoing significant change, while being responsive to the evolving preferences of society...I really enjoy being able to participate in a variety of different projects and the many opportunities to learn based on my interests. It means that every day is different. It’s also great to work with a diverse group of people who bring their own experiences and individual personality to the team.”

“ActewAGL is one of the most reputable companies to work for in the ACT. I like that I get to apply the skills I gained from my engineering degree, while working on industry-leading innovation projects that are changing the energy ecosystem.”

  • At ActewAGL, we’re committed to a diverse workforce. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer who embraces and fosters a culture that supports diversity, inclusion and respect, where people are empowered to fulfil their potential. We welcome people with diverse skills, experiences, perspectives and backgrounds, and encourage applications from women, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people with disability, people that identify as LGBTIQ+, and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

    We offer a range of initiatives to support our employees’ experience. The Equity and Diversity Network was formed to ensure every one of our people feels safe and welcome in the workplace.

    Our InspireCo. committee work across our Joint Venture to support equality and offer networking and development opportunities. Throughout the year, the committee hosts a range of events to celebrate key diversity and inclusion milestones, such as International Women's Day and other culturally significant events.

    Many of our employees are on a flexible working arrangement so they can be their best at work and at home. ActewAGL is an accredited breastfeeding friendly workplace, and have a parent room at each site to support women as they transition back to work from parental leave.

    “My flexible working arrangement supports the balance between my home and work life. I have two small children, and when my eldest started primary school last year, it was important to me that I could balance quality time with my family and a rewarding and successful career. And so my flexible working arrangement was born! ActewAGL was supportive of my arrangement from the very beginning. I’ve been blown away by the support I’ve had from all levels – from the CEO, General Manager and my team.”
