I chose BG Private as it is big enough that we deal with complex groups and structures but small enough that we know each other well, including the Partners who are approachable and happy to share their knowledge.

Learn more about BG Private’s BG Flex policy, which ensures our people can live life on their terms!

Rewards and benefits

We know that people are more positive and driven when they can live life on their terms. Our BG Flex policy includes options like work from home, a compressed work week, flex hours (between 7.30am and 5.30pm), leave purchasing, and more.

While many large firms are known for their relentless work hours, we take the view that to get the most out of life you need balance. Although there are busier times, there are also quieter times where you can take a breath. We ask that people work hard and smart so that they can enjoy life to the full.

We have a “work for your day” dress code, which means that you can toggle between corporate attire and smart casual based on your calendar. We also have casual Fridays. View our dress code.

We hold an annual Golf Day and Women’s Lunch, and enjoy weekly morning teas, lunch-and-learns, strategy days, trivia nights and staff parties. The Friday night drinks cart is a firm favourite.

We care about our people. Through our Employee Assistance Program (EAP), TELUS Health, you can access free and confidential psychological counselling, with additional support services like basic legal, nutrition and financial advice.

It’s important that you like the people you work with. One of the things our staff report loving most about BG Private is the people. We send regular engagement surveys to ensure we remain on track, and our recent results have never been better.

We pride ourselves on having people from all walks of life and everyone is valued and respected no matter their background.

Glenferrie Rd is a great place to work and very close to parking and public transport. It is the heart of the inner-eastern suburbs minus the CBD traffic. And on our doorstep is everything you need to make life easier. Read about some of our favourite nearby amenities.

Our experts love sharing what they know to help colleagues succeed with their personal money matters, including information on budgeting, insurance, super and investing.

Enjoy subsidised massages, snacks, annual flu vaccines, discounted services on Glenferrie Road, and free parking. Read up on all our staff benefits.
