Flexibility and choice

Our approach to Flexibility

Why is flexible work so important to us? We know that when our people are engaged, safe, and productive, they’re able to deliver their best for our customers, our organisation, and our communities.

Flexibility and choice

At Telstra, we understand that flexibility means something different to everyone. Whether it’s working different hours, at home or in the office,  or job-sharing, our teams have more choices when it comes to how they work.

Flexibility applies to every role at Telstra, and with more than 20,000 people across 22 countries, Telstra’s strategy is to expand its global footprint.

Our approach to flexibility is based on four ‘flex’ pillars:

When will you work?

Consider part-time, job-sharing, compressed hours, and varied start and finish times to suit your commitments. 

Where will you work?

Wherever you will be most productive, including at home, out of various Telstra workspaces, or on the go.

How will you take leave?

Take the time to spend away from work whenever you need it most with our additional leave options including parental, cultural, gender-affirmation, and unpaid or purchased leave, or even take a career break.

What will you do at work?

We believe every role can flex in some way. Create a career that enables you to use your strengths and build on your experiences.
