My future is always connected
Stories are what make us human. They make us feel part of something. They grow our local communities and at the same time shrink our world. They connect us.
Helping people make a connection is central to my job and my company. It’s what I do. It’s what Telstra does.
We’re at the heart of helping Australians connect. We carry their voices, their video calls, their tweets and their business, big and small, across the country. And more and more across the globe.
As a communicator I help tell the Telstra story - sharing it with our customers, our shareholders and our employees around the world.
Working for a company at the forefront of changes in communications technology and with aspirations to grow globally makes this pretty exciting.
It provides opportunities to work across time zones and geographies and push the boundaries on how we communicate – we’re challenged every day to simplify what we do and find new ways to tell our stories.
Great technology means more flexibility. As a leader in mobility, Telstra helps me stay connected, pretty much wherever I am. That’s a big part of this job – always being in touch with what’s happening and being able to communicate effectively.
It also helps me balance work and family and be where I need to be when I need to be there. As a father of young kids this is probably the biggest benefit of the job – having the freedom and flexibility to be at the big events in my kids’ lives.
I’ve also had the privilege of moving around the country for personal reasons and still been able to do my job, and taken extended time off with the family to travel. That’s a real testament to how much Telstra values my input, and what I put back into the company in return.
