We also surveyed 550 of our employees and asked them what they thought were the top reasons to join Metcash and this is what they said…
We understand that everyone’s situation is different and we hope to be able to accommodate yours. From flexible start and finish times, compressed working weeks, purchased leave, well-being days, work from home, paid parental leave and Camp Metcash we have a range of flexibility options for you. Our people love that flexibility is a major focus to join Metcash.
Our 6,000 employees are the power behind our brands and behind the Metcash name. We want you to feel empowered to make change happen. We are building a friendly and collaborative culture where innovation and fresh ideas are welcome.
We believe in developing our people and have robust systems and processes in place to encourage internal recruitment and succession planning. Through an extensive suite of development opportunities, training and courses, we also facilitate an environment where we learn from each other and collaborate across all areas of our business. We recognise that innovation is borne from within and challenge our employees to realise their potential.
At Metcash we are focused on the communities we operate in and also the communities our customers are a part of. Through our Community Chest program we have raised over $60 Million which is then donated to local charities including schools, surf life saving clubs and local libraries. We also donate over 570 tonnes of products to Foodbank each year.
Our employees actively look for ways to support charities running events including Are You OK Day, Harmony Day, NAIDOC and Worlds Biggest Morning tea. Every employee is encouraged to look for ways they can support communities or promote their chosen charity.
