Sally works four and a half days a week, working one and a half of these from home. Macquarie’s approach to flexible work arrangements has also meant that Sally has been able to find a balance between work and raising her two children – something she thinks is key in keeping employees engaged.
“Macquarie provides an environment where you are constantly learning and being challenged whilst providing the support to succeed. It also provides an environment where the right level of flexibility and work life balance are considered.”
Like Sally, Jonathan Boswell, Head of Operational Risk in the Corporate Operations Group, has also had many careers at Macquarie. Working across business groups and locations, Jonathan says the opportunities for internal mobility within the business are boundless.
“I worked in business banking before moving to a role in market operations. I’ve also worked in project and business management as well as spending two years in the London office.”
“The opportunities to move between divisions and locations at Macquarie are, in my view, what sets it apart from other organisations. I’ve seen many people from the risk team move into leadership roles as this function plays such a central focus at Macquarie.”
Jonathan believes that the diversity of Macquarie’s business provides the opportunity to be involved in transactions, which many people would not normally get exposure to in traditional investment banking risk roles.
“As the only global financial services group of our kind that’s headquartered in Australia, there is a real opportunity for an exciting, challenging and diverse career in risk management at Macquarie. All employees are required to be risk managers, which means it is seen as a priority, and engagement with roles in risk is high across the business.”
