Our Values

Make It Happen

Drive to deliver results with the highest impact and be committed to follow through. Continuously optimise through collaboration to achieve the best collective outcomes.

Be Proactive

Take active steps and be the driver to improve things, for yourself, your team and the cities we serve. Relish the chance if this leads you outside your normal scope.

Trust Facts Over Opinions

Decisions should be evidence-based. Assess situations fairly, using reason and logic rather than unverified opinions wherever possible.

Stay Curious

Ask questions, challenge assumptions, learn from mistakes and be ready to leave behind what you thought you knew before.

Do More With Less

Both time and resources are finite. Balance your priorities and think strategically about how you can maximise your impact and the return on investment of your resources.

 

If you are passionate about making a real-time impact and want the opportunity to play an instrumental part in our growth story, we want you riding for our team!
