We want The Foundation to be a place where our employees truly enjoy coming to work and we provide a number of staff benefits for our Australian and international employees.
We aim to provide a package that’s attractive, consistent and appropriate to our sector. Our global remuneration framework ensures we remain aligned to local pay, employment conditions and laws.
Our full time employees are entitled to annual leave (and pro-rated leave for our part-time employees) that’s in line with local regulations and practice.
Performance and development
We encourage our employees to develop within their roles. Our framework helps you work closely with your manager to plan, manage and review your performance throughout the year. Our approach is to support you with obtaining the on-the-job-experience, exposure and formal learning that you need, when you need it.
We believe in mutual flexibility, and encourage our employees to talk with their managers about maintaining a good work-life balance.
Leadership is a key priority for us. Our customised leadership programs develop leaders at all levels, helping them reach their career goals as well as supporting our vision of ending avoidable blindness.
We have a global study assistance program and are committed to supporting tertiary education that’s relevant to your work. Applications for study support, financial assistance and study days are considered annually.
Employee assistance program
We support the health and wellbeing of our employees. We offer free external, professional and confidential counselling assistance to our people and their immediate family members who have personal or employment-related concerns.
We look after the health and safety of our employees, we provide recognition for their achievements, and we encourage professional growth through learning and development opportunities.
