Employee benefits

BSL staff receive flexible employment conditions, competitive salaries and a supportive workplace.

Our people matter to us. That’s why we strive to create a supportive workplace that offers competitive salaries for our sector and flexible employment conditions.

Work-life balance

We recognise the pressures of the work-life balance, which is why we provide a family-friendly working environment. BSL offers twelve weeks paid maternity leave and two weeks paid leave for the partner of a birthing parent.

Workplace support

We recognise that our staff are more effective when they have the right support systems in place.

Some of the ways we support our staff are:

  • regular one-on-one structured support from managers/supervisors
  • an employment assistance program, providing free and confidential personal counselling services


BSL has three Enterprise Agreements which cover most of our staff . These agreements are the result of negotiations with a number of unions and staff representatives. They consider regular salary increases and a wide variety of flexible working conditions.

Industry benefits
