Working at Transurban is different; it's a place where you can see the benefits of your work play out in real life, every day. We create city-sized solutions-building and operating safer, smarter, and more sustainable roads-to solve pressing transport challenges that are slowing cities down.

About the role

We are seeking an Accountant to assist with a range of accounting tasks across the group - such as month end duties, general ledger, intercompany accounts, invoicing, reconciliations, cash flow statements, as well as getting involved in treasury accounting related activities and playing an active role in continuous improvement.

  • Get involved in ad-hoc project work that impact the wider team in areas such as system integration, process improvement or transformation

This role will suit someone with a curious mind and transferrable skills and experiences, including:

  • A range of flexible working and leave options, including the option to purchase an additional six weeks of leave each year
  • 16 weeks paid parental leave (regardless of gender or carer status), with no waiting period, with Superannuation paid during unpaid leave as well

  • Health and wellbeing support-access to Headspace and our EAP program, wellness facilities, and more
  • Share offers and insurance benefits
  • Social activities, community give-back programs and paid volunteer days
We offer a range of flexible working and leave options, so you can balance your work and life commitments and interests. Have a conversation with us about how this could work for you.
