Ongoing training and development As well as providing structured on the job training, we also encourage employees to undertake additional training and/or education through our education assistance program, providing financial and in-kind support to help employees up-skill themselves, if desired. QAL will also provide financial assistance to employees whose dependent children need to relocate from the Gladstone area to pursue their tertiary course of choice.
Competitive rates of pay We believe in looking after our staff because they are the most valuable assets of our business. For this reason we remunerate with some of the best pay rates in our industry, plus provide generous bonuses to reward exceptional performance or operational milestones. We also offer great levels of superannuation above the legislative minimum and generous family private health cover subsidies.
Lifestyle benefits All permanent employees receive a ‘Lifestyle Package’ which includes free unlimited cinema passes, gym membership and golf at courses in Gladstone, Calliope and Tannum Sands.
Family friendly and flexible workplace We believe that happy staff are productive staff, and happiness starts in the home. We do our best to accommodate the responsibilities that you have outside of the office, including having flexible work hours and shift working rosters as demonstrated by our nine-day fortnight.
Team culture We are very selective about the people that we hire, because we are fiercely protective of the team culture that we have developed over the lifetime of the business. If you make the grade, you can be assured that you will be working in a positive environment and will enjoy the opportunities that QAL provides.
Paid Maternity/Paternity Scheme QAL offers a maternity/paternity leave scheme with 4.5 months leave at full pay. Unpaid leave is also an option for staff.
Service Awards/Employee Discounts At five years of service an employee is recognised by their leader. At 10 years of service, QAL recognises an employee's loyalty by holding a dinner. Employee discounts are also available with various local retailers including local restaurants, electrical suppliers and Heron Island Resort.
