Introducing Balance, our new flexible work initiative. Balance is about harnessing our diversity, supporting our team’s health and wellbeing, empowering our people and increasing team productivity.

How Balance works

We know how important it is for our employees to strike a balance between their work and personal lives. By mainstreaming flexibility, we’re accelerating every CSIRO team member’s access and uptake of flexible work arrangements.With Balance in place, we’re moving away from a one size fits all approach to how, when and where our people work to enable each person to shape their own working arrangements.

Flexible working arrangements are available to all current and future team members. Whether you are in the recruitment process for one of our roles or are considering working with us in future, a position with us means that from the get-go you can discuss possibilities around:

How you work

  • Job sharing and job split opportunities
  • Return from long term leave – including parental, long service, leave without pay and other lengthy absences
  • Knowledge that at any time, you can start a conversation about changing your working arrangements to support your role preferences, career direction and changes in your personal life
  • Involvement in secondment opportunities such as Switch, Spin-Off Companies and other Ventures
  • Access to the Transition to Retirement scheme

When you work

  • Flexible start and finish times (within core hours)
  • Full-time and part-time options
  • Pay averaging over a reduced working year
  • Leave options that support where you’re at in life, including; time off in lieu (where applicable), miscellaneous leave, study leave, leave without pay to undertake personal or career development activities and more.

Where you work

  • Working away from base – at home, remotely or overseas for periods of time
  • Working remotely from another CSIRO site while travelling
  • Access to appropriate support to work remotely
