Mission: Together, we reimagine the future.

Telstra – Why Work For Us?

We’re a company full of technology optimists, with a belief that it can bring tremendous benefits to businesses and society.

That is why we are focused on delivering our T22 strategy, which will fundamentally change the nature of telecommunications products and services in Australia.

To deliver on this bold new strategy, we are transforming our workplace, so we are agile enough to deal with rapid change and be able to take advantage of new innovations.

5G technology, developing Internet of Things (IoT) network capabilities and deploying optical transport technology in our transmission network, are just the beginning of what we are hoping to achieve together.

Our success will always be built on people who have a deep connection with our customers, have expert knowledge and technical expertise.

Read more about our vision.

We’re creating a culture that’s more diverse, innovative and collaborative than ever before. It means everyone who works here plays a role in helping us to achieve our strategy and company vision.

We all live by our five values. They are:

  • Show you care
  • Better together
  • Trust each other to deliver
  • Make the complex simple
  • Find your courage

See how our values come to life.

Connection has been at the heart of Telstra for over 100 years. We believe it’s what brings us together, and removes the barriers that keep us apart.

That means you'll get more than a job – here you can make a difference.

Due to our size and global footprint, your career opportunities are endless, regardless of whether you work in our technology, sales, corporate, digital, marketing or customer service teams. We are the right people, with the right resources to do extraordinary things.

Search for a role now.

We’re passionate about creating an environment that’s inclusive and supportive; a place where everyone can truly be themselves.

We are proactive about making sure our workplaces give our people the chance to shine. We do this with specific practices about diversity, fairness and flexibility. We encourage all our people to be active champions of equality and inclusion.

Our focus on diversity and inclusion spans all the ways in which people differ, both visible and invisible. This includes gender, age, ethnicity, race, cultural background, disability, religion and sexual orientation.

We believe diversity fosters greater innovation, stronger problem-solving capability, better customer connection and increased morale.

Find out more about what diversity and inclusion means to us.

We understand the need to be flexible, to help our people do all the things they love. All Roles Flex is our promise to approach every role which means flexibility is something we’re open to discussing for all jobs – whether that’s working part-time, outside normal business hours, from different locations, or job-sharing.

We’ve adopted a very broad definition of flexibility, recognising it will mean different things for different people and different work types. We also have leave options that include parental leave, cultural leave and career breaks.

We encourage our leaders to manage flexible working by checking in with their team members regularly to see what’s going on outside work. We urge our people to trial new ways of flexible working and to take a guilt-free attitude to flexibility, because it improves productivity, engagement and results for customers.
