This is why we work at Telstra

Working at Telstra, we all have a why. For some it’s flexible work, for others it’s parental leave, the great colleagues, or exciting opportunities. At Telstra, it’s what motivates us every day.

NARRATOR: Now imagine this. A brilliant connected future brought to you by Telstra.

FOOTAGE: We begin a montage in the blank room filled with Telstra employees, as the flowing graphic swirls around them, forming a series of shapes. The first shape formed is an outline of a city skyline behind an employee, who stretches their arms out wide.

NARRATOR: We have the size and scale to make it a reality.

FOOTAGE: The flowing graphic then creates a series of outlines in front of different people; a satellite tower, coding symbols and a shield representing cyber security.

NARRATOR: At Telstra, you can re-engineer tomorrow's networks, rewrite tomorrow's software, redesign tomorrow's cybersecurity.

FOOTAGE: The flowing graphic forms an outline of a desk around a Telstra member seated at a chair.

NARRATOR: Rethink, what you think a telco can do.

FOOTAGE: A large outline of an earth globe is formed by the flowing graphic as it is held up by a Telstra employee.

NARRATOR: Together, we're solving the big problems on the biggest projects. The work we do, the work that you'll do, can change the world.

FOOTAGE: The flowing graphic forms the word “Future” before swirling around more Telstra employees.

NARRATOR: Now imagine your future. Our transformation is one of the biggest of its kind in the world. You can be part of it, with the opportunity to make an impact you won't find anywhere else.

FOOTAGE: The flowing graphic moves around several members who smile as it passes them.

NARRATOR: We're radically simplifying our structure and ways of working, removing barriers and empowering our people.

FOOTAGE: The flowing graphic moves around a member walking towards us, forming symbols used in coding as it moves.

NARRATOR: Be bold. Be brave. Experiment and learn.

FOOTAGE: The flowing graphic then forms the shape of a house around a person.

NARRATOR: You'll have more career opportunities than you ever imagined, with the flexibility to balance your work and home life.

FOOTAGE: The graphic swirls to the hands of an employee and creates the shape of an award ribbon.

NARRATOR: At Telstra, you can truly be yourself and achieve the things that matter most to you.

FOOTAGE: The flowing graphic forms the shape of a superhero cape behind an employee.
