WORKING AT DBP
DBP offers competitive market based salaries for all employees. Employees who work on roster or on site receive generous allowances which are annualised for the employees’ convenience.
Flexible Working Arrangements
DBP endeavours to accommodate requests to nominate start and finish times to allow for family and personal commitments.
Great FIFO Rosters
DBP has great rosters for employees working on the pipeline. Most rostered employees work an 11 day on nine day off roster with all travel occurring during 11 days on.
DBP Additional Fixed Days Holidays
In addition to your statutory annual leave DBP gives all eligible employees three days per financial year as fixed additional holidays. These fixed additional holiday dates are chosen by the Executive Management Team and communicated to employees prior to the commencement of the respective year.
Great Team Environment
DBP encourages all employees to work harmoniously together. DBP has a very active social club so that employees in both locations have ample opportunity to get to know each other.
DBP offers salary packaging to all employees including novated leases and superannuation. Salary sacrificing of extra annual leave is also offered to eligible employees.
Short Term Incentive Plan
DBP encourages all employees to perform at their best. We have a developed a short term incentive plan (STIP) which is an annual bonus payment based on performance of both DBP and the employee. The STIP payment is based on 60% company performance and 40% individual performance.
The health and well-being of our employees is of great importance to us. DBP has arrangements with two gyms (one south of the river and one in the city) which allows all permanent DBP employees the use of its facilities.
Salary Continuance Insurance
From the date of commencement, all permanent full-time and part-time employees will automatically be registered for Salary Continuance Insurance. This provides a replacement income for employees during prolonged periods of illness or injury. The benefit is fully paid by DBP through a group policy.
Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
We offer all employees and their immediate family free access to our Employee Assistance Program (EAP).
The EAP is a totally confidential telephone service provided by BSS. This service is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and offers a range of one-on-one counselling and advice on work and personal issues. Each employee is offered six sessions annually.
We are committed to providing a workplace environment that accommodates the needs of our employees with family responsibilities. Recognising that parenting may be a shared responsibility, we offer entitlements for employees in their capacity as either primary care giver (14 weeks paid parental leave) or in supporting parental roles (two weeks paid parental leave).
Length of Service Awards
We value the long-term contribution of our employees by recognising length of service anniversaries. Tenure based awards for permanent full-time and part-time employees commence at five years of service and continue in five year increments.
Training & Development
DBP has an extensive training program which is coordinated by our in-house training and development team. The team will implement a training path for each employee and will arrange training as required. Training will then be arranged which is necessary for the employee’s role, current capabilities and skills requirements.
We also ensure that employees receive all mandatory training required of the employee’s role to ensure DBP’s strict safety requirements are met.
DBP supports and encourages individual development and education by assisting employees in work related studies.
Subject to agreement with management, we will reimburse for an approved amount once you have successfully completed studies through recognised external institutions. Generally, these courses will involve part-time study with attendance in your own time.
Payment for Recognised Professional Memberships
DBP recognises the importance of employees remaining up-to-date with the requirements of their role and profession and will pay the membership fees of recognised professions.
We believe that our employees are well placed to know the requirements of particular jobs within DBP and are aware of colleagues or acquaintances that may be suitably qualified for those roles. DBP offers a referral bonus to eligible employees if they recommend someone who is then employed on a permanent basis by DBP and successfully completes their probationary period.
