I have completed a higher education degree whilst working at Powerlink and whilst completing my degree I received nothing but encouragement, support and flexibility to be able to successfully graduate. I have also recently returned from Parental Leave and have found that my Manager and colleagues have been very understanding and supportive of me whilst I found my feet again. On top of this the people and amenities - onsite parking, cafeteria, atrium and gym - really make it feel like an inclusive community.
