Equity Diversity & Inclusion

Why ACCIONA?

ACCIONA is a global leader in sustainable solutions for infrastructure, renewable energy, and water treatment projects.

Our idea of industry leadership is radically different. We aim to reimagine infrastructure: to invest in, develop and operate assets that don’t just aspire to neutrality but aim to make our societies more sustainable. In short, we offer regenerative infrastructure.

Our commitment to Sustainability, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion are just some of the reasons why our people love to work with us.  Here are just a few of the key benefits and programs we offer, that we thought you might be interested in. 

    Gender Neutral Parental Leave and More

    At ACCIONA we offer Parental Leave to all parents of a newborn or newly adopted child with twelve (12) weeks of paid leave (including superannuation). This leave can be taken anytime within 12 months of the child’s birth or adoption. In addition to this we offer:

    • Additional four (4) weeks of paid Re-entry Work Assistance Leave to Primary Carers to support their return to work.
    • Pregnant employees (with any length of ACCIONA service) access to several Parental Leave benefits, such as a 6-hour working day from the 26th week of pregnancy at full pay, parking spaces, and business class flights. (Note that paid Parental Leave and Re-entry Work Assistance are accessible to employees after 12 months of service.)
    • Annual reimbursement of up to A$300 per family, for ACCIONA families with a child aged 0-5yrs in a recognised childcare establishment.
    • Loan/advance payment up to 3 months’ pay for childcare-related special cases (for children aged 0-18years).
    • ACCIONA is supportive of part-time working (at full pay) for parents with newborns who have a serious illness for up to 12 months.
    • Employees who suffer the loss of a baby through stillbirth will be entitled to up to 12 weeks of paid Parental Leave.
    • Employees who do not have 12 months of service are entitled to take unpaid parental leave and will have access to paid leave after 12 months of service (commenced before the child’s 1st birthday).

    Flexile Working Model

    At ACCIONA we promote flexibility in all its forms.  All employees can make an agreement with their manager for a flexible work arrangement. At ACCIONA, we offer two types of flexible work arrangements, Core Flexibility and Elective Flexibility. Core Flexibility is a simplified process for the approval of remote work aimed at helping ensure that remote work is ‘normalised’ and made as accessible as possible through a simplified agreement-making process. Elective Flexibility is a more formal type of flexible work arrangement that may affect the employee’s employment conditions.

    We also strongly support job-sharing and encourage any applicants seeking a job-sharing arrangement to share this with us.
