Why our employees like to work here
 
Helen, P&C Director, Brisbane

I work from home in Brisbane, QLD. As a single mum ...and Director of P&C at ACS, I often juggle home and work life. ACS has made my life so easy through its flexible approach to working. I love my job not only because I work with an amazing group of talented individuals but because I feel like I can make a real difference to our culture through my work.

Hugh, Senior Policy Advisor, NSW

ACS has been a part of my life and career for nearly five years. In that time ...the people I work with have really become like a second family. Life has its ups and downs but the support I have received from my colleagues has gone beyond that of just a work relationship. ACS has offered a lot of flexibility and opportunity. No two days are the same. I also feel like part of the team and the decision-making process. Your thoughts are valued and taken into consideration – no matter your role or place in the organisation. ACS’ work is also important, now more than ever. Our members’ work and the role of technology in society is the future. I can highly recommend ACS as a place to work and build your career.

Jenalle, Membership Services and Events Manager, ACT

At ACS my purpose is to use my experience, knowledge and skills to deliver professional services... and contribute to the organisation and society. ACS allows me to contribute, learn new things, take initiative, share my ideas on continued improvement of internal processes and analyse what members need. I joined ACS in 2010, and I continue to enjoy what I do. No two days are the same, and I can use my cross-functional skills to contribute to the organisation, our members, and to society.

With a bold vision to build Australia’s future technology workforce, we are committed to empowering purposeful careers.

With offices located across Australia, ACS has a diverse variety of roles and career opportunities.
