We believe a fundamental component of a healthy workplace is a range of support services and flexible work options that help people thrive, both inside and outside the office. Here are some of the benefits we offer our staff.
All roles at Patersons are open to consider flexible working arrangements, with potential options such as flexible hours, working remotely, part time work, or job share.
Paid Parental Leave
We provide primary care-givers with six weeks of paid parental leave upon the birth or adoption of a child. Secondary care-givers are also eligible for one week of paid parental leave.
Employee Assistance Program
Our staff have confidential access to short-term professional counselling services to discuss any problems that may affect their work performance, safety or health.
Volunteer Work Leave
We encourage our staff to take one day of volunteer leave per year to make a positive contribution to their community.
Career Break Leave
To re-energise and pursue personal interests, staff can take a career break of up to three months of unpaid leave.
Up to Two Weeks Additional Leave
Sometimes four weeks just isn’t enough, so staff can purchase up to two weeks of additional leave each year.
Domestic Violence Support Leave
We offer five days of paid domestic violence support leave to seek medical or legal assistance, attend court or make other safety arrangements to support anyone who may be the victim of domestic violence.
Salary Sacrifice Options
We offer a number of opportunities to salary sacrifice towards car parking, membership to professional organisations, Qantas Club membership, or by making additional contributions to superannuation.
To help you keep fit, we’ll make a contribution towards your annual gym membership, or for our Perth staff, provide free membership to our local gym.

We trust our staff recommendations, so we offer a significant cash rewards for referrals that lead to permanent employment.

Instead of purchasing a car upfront or on finance, our staff have the option to lease a car and novate the lease on a pre-tax basis, with payments deducted from their pre-tax salary.
