We recognise the pressures of balancing family and work life. We encourage flexible working conditions through providing a family friendly working environment. The Brotherhood offers twelve weeks paid maternity leave and two weeks paid leave for the partner of a birthing parent.
We also recognise that our staff are more effective when they have the right support systems in place.Some of the ways we support our staff are:
The Brotherhood strives to create a workplace that offers attractive and competitive salaries and employment conditions. We have three Enterprise Agreements which cover all staff with the exception of the Executive Team. These are the result of negotiations with a number of unions and staff representatives and provide for regular salary increases and a wide variety of flexible working conditions.
Salary packaging allows you to pay for certain expenses before tax is taken out of your earnings. This reduces the amount of tax paid, helping staff make the most of their income.
Employees may choose to package a range of items such as mortgages, rent, health insurance and personal loan repayments.
Other benefits include:
Syrian refugee families & the Canadians who adopted them: they filled gaps in one another’s lives in unexpected ways nyti.ms/2nPsr7Z
