Why EDL?

In addition to our SPIRIT values a number of policies, programs and initiatives support the enhancement of our culture across the regions where we operate.

Diversity and inclusion

As a leading global employer with over thirty years in operation, we have identified that workforce diversity can make a significant contribution to EDL’s success by creating a richer and more creative environment enabling innovation, diverse thought, productivity and better decisions.

We therefore commit to providing equal opportunities across all areas of the business.

Flexible work

Throughout our organisation, we are committed to identifying and facilitating Flexible Work arrangements. Recognising that our employees have different life circumstances, we promote a variety of flexible working arrangements so all employees have the opportunity to maintain work-life balance.

Paternity leave policy

EDL has a paternity leave policy to allow employees to take care of their families when they need to. EDL will support employees to keep in touch with the company while on extended parental leave.

Career trackers

Career Trackers is a national non-profit organisation that creates internship opportunities for Indigenous university students. EDL has a long-term partnership with Career Trackers to support the employment of interns across the Australian business.

Career seekers

EDL also participates in CareerTrackers’ sister program, CareerSeekers, which provides university to career pathways for refugees and migrants.

Apprentices

EDL is committed to developing employees through apprenticeship and training opportunities. Our Apprenticeship program is made up of in-class learning and on-the-job training and we aim to have apprentices working at different stages across the business. Most apprenticeships are in the Electrical and Mechanical fields.

Internship and work experience program

At EDL we provide undergraduates and work experience students the opportunity to be involved in real projects that add real value to the organisation.
