Why JobWatch?

When you work with us, you’re getting more than an exciting career in employment law. You’re joining a close-knit team of experienced and collegiate professionals who are passionate about making a real difference to workers in Victoria, Queensland and Tasmania.

We offer a range of employee benefits, including:

1. Flexible working arrangements

We take the approach – if you’re flexible, we’re flexible. This includes the ability to work from home, vary hours and days, within business requirements.

2. Salary packaging

There are significant tax concessions for employees of not-for-profit organisations with FBT exemptions like JobWatch. You can salary package up to $15,900* per year tax free from each employer, as well as up to an additional $2,650* through meal entertainment and entertainment facility leasing benefits salary packaging. The tax saved is a permanent tax saving.

To confirm salary packaging amounts (which could be subject to change)*, and for more information about salary packaging and how it works, please visit the MoneySmart website or the Australian Tax Office website.

3. Leave

In addition to the leave benefits guaranteed by the National Employment Standards, we also provide paid parental leave, paid compassionate leave, cultural leave, study leave, additional paid leave over the end of year holiday period, and more.

For more detail on employee benefits, you can view the current JobWatch enterprise agreement on the Fair Work Commission website.
