Transport for NSW

Government, Social Work & Community Services

Think of Transport as a hybrid motor vehicle. We are reliable, valuable and for the community. These Government values are deep-rooted in how we work. Outside, there’s a lot of cool stuff happening – projects, technology and programs that are constantly pushing the boundaries.

We are currently delivering the largest Transport infrastructure program in Australia’s history. This means more opportunities than ever before across the state.

Working with Transport could see you upgrading our road network on the Pacific Highway from Woolgoolga to Ballina to bring commuters home to their loved ones safely. You could consult on plans for the new Western Sydney Aerotropolis to design our future cities. You might work with big data and inform future network upgrades. Or build game-changing projects with the Parramatta Light Rail and Regional Rail and enable better connected cities. Design development and learning programs for our people and help shape their careers.


At Transport, we support work-life balance and understand it comes in all shapes and forms.

You are able to access annual leave, sick leave, family leave and community service leave. We also offer flex time for any work you do over your contract hours, to enjoy a long weekend, or spend time with family and friends.

Developing our people is something we are passionate about. We run an 18-month Development Program including workshops for our Graduates to learn about soft skills critical in all aspects of life. We also run regular upskill sessions for everyone on topics including Aboriginal Culture, Excel and Publishing Software. You’ll also have opportunities to attend courses including Construction White Card training and Rail Industry Safety Inductions, and networking events. This is all on top of the meaningful, hands-on experience our Graduates, Cadets and Scholars receive in their work placements and teams.

We Celebrate Diversity

Transport is deeply committed to building an inclusive and diverse culture where people feel they belong and can be their whole selves at work. We recognise the value of this for our people, our customers and the community in delivering the future of NSW. We are committed to increasing representation particularly for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, women and people with disability and we embrace difference in all its forms.

At Transport, flexibility is encouraged and we provide choice in how, when are where you work. We are also committed to creating more accessible roads and public transport for our customers and communities.

LGBTIQ+ Support

Inclusion means valuing and supporting all of our employees, including those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and people with other gender identities and sexual orientations.

Our Ally Employee Network plays an important role in advocating for diversity to ensure our workplace is safe and inclusive for everyone. Each year, Transport promotes awareness through a number of events and programs, including Mardi Gras, Wear it Purple Day and International Day Against Homophobia, Interphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT).

People with Disability

We continue to reduce and eliminate the barriers preventing employees and customers from actively participating in employment, education, recreation and community life.

We understand a disability can be visible and invisible and actively provide support and guidance for those living with a disability and those providing care. Our Disability Employee Network, Enabled Network, provides a voice to people who have lived experience of disability and help inform so that we are truly an inclusive employer and is the largest public sector DEN network. Each year, Transport promotes awareness through events and programs, including International Day of People with a Disability, Mental Health Awareness Week and RUOK Day. We also provide reasonable adjustments in the recruitment process and working arrangements to provide for greater equality.

Gender Equality

Transport has a longstanding commitment to driving gender equality across our organisation, empowering people of all genders to have access to the same opportunities.

To help achieve this, we have a focus on attracting, retaining and developing people of all genders. We have gender targets that we track and monitor progress on a monthly basis, we have a requirement for gender-balanced interview lists, we review our role descriptions and job ads to identify any biased language or pre-requisites, and we encourage flexible ways of working as a key enabler. We also strive for 50:50 gender representation across our Entry Level Talent Programs.

Transport is also a member of the Male Champions of Change Program to accelerate progress for gender equality. Our employee reference group, the WiSE Network (Women in STEM and Construction Network), also plays an important role in connecting and supporting women, providing guidance to help attract and retain and build a pipeline from students to future leaders.

There are also a variety of programs, events and initiatives for all to be involved in and support gender equality.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Representation

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Many of the Transport routes we use today – from rail lines, to roads, to water crossings – follow the traditional Songlines, trade routes and ceremonials paths that our nation’s First Peoples followed for tens of thousands of years.

We are committed to working towards reconciliation and continue to recognise the spiritual connection Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have to Country. Our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is the largest of its type and will bring about better employment, economic and social outcomes for Aboriginal Peoples.

Read more here about the important steps we are taking to better support our people and communities. We have a strong Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workforce and are committed to having more people join us and become an integral part of the Transport family.
