Our people and culture focus

For a business like ours, attracting and retaining talent and ensuring our people are highly engaged team members is integral to our success.

We want our people to enjoy working in a dynamic business which offers rewarding careers, opportunities for learning and development, and assists them to grow and succeed both professionally and personally.

In FY18 our goal was to create an awesome place to work and support a highly engaged team that is passionate and inspired. Our people and culture approach focused on four strategic pillars: 

  • defining and nurturing our culture and values
  • developing talent and capability,
  • energising and engaging our people, and
  • shaping our organisation.

Vicinity encourages both real time and agile working practices for our people which provides a flexible work setting and supports a more efficient and effective workplace to enable greater connection and collaboration amongst Vicinity teams.

Our values

We have a values-led culture that allows our people to thrive and be their very best everyday. Our values are part of who we are and are intrinsic to our success. They come to life through the actions we take, the decisions we make, the lessons we learn and the stories we share.

We support this by creating a work environment where everyone can be themselves and make a difference, at work and in the communities where we exist.

Our people

We continue to shape our organisation to ensure we are well placed to respond to an evolving retail and economic landscape.

To support our Group strategic focus of creating market-leading destinations and realising mixed use opportunities, this year, we focused on building our data and insights and property development (including mixed-use) capabilities to drive better development, leasing and operational decisions and unlock additional potential in our portfolio.

As a result we hired over 260 new people at Vicinity during FY18, primarily in the areas of digital, data analytics, development and leasing.
