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.
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.
Parental leave policy
EDL has a parental 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.
CareerTrackers is a national non-profit organisation that creates internship opportunities for Indigenous university students. EDL has a long-term partnership with CareerTrackers to support the employment of interns across the Australian business.
EDL also participates in CareerTrackers’ sister program, CareerSeekers, which provides university to career pathways for refugees and migrants.
EDL currently provides apprenticeship opportunities at our Australian operations. Our apprenticeship program consists 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.

Our graduate and internship programs offer exciting, rewarding career pathways at the forefront of the transformation to a sustainable energy future.
