Founded two decades ago, Nova Systems is a leading Australian owned and operated engineering and technology solutions company now with more than 850 people globally.
The company has consistently ranked in the Top 20 of the WRK+ Best Places to Work study and was today named #9 – its best ever result*.
Chief People Officer Shelley Willsmore said “Nova is a company that truly values and invests in our people. Part of our strategy is to make our people our point of difference. We have a highly skilled and talented workforce who genuinely care for one another.
“This ranking is testament to our employees who go out of their way to support each other and give their best each day. From our origins 23 years ago, Nova has always strived to provide a positive culture and supportive work environment which enables our people to thrive both professionally and personally.
“We believe this is key in enabling our people to fully leverage their talents and bring their unique perspectives to deliver smart solutions for our clients.
“While Nova has rapidly grown, it’s been a priority to maintain the positive culture that the company is synonymous for. We are continuously engaging with our people and looking to implement contemporary inclusions and benefits.
“Some past feedback was that our people wanted more appealing workplaces; we decided to deliver that where possible, recently moving to new offices in Melbourne, Canberra and Adelaide.
“We are refreshing our benefits to cater to the diverse needs of our workforce such as flexible working, generous leave policies, professional development opportunities, and a culture that fosters collaboration and growth.
“The diversity and variety of work remains a big attraction to Nova – we work on a broad range of projects across Defence, essential services, government and space. Some of our people say they’ve had multiple careers at the same company.
“We also invest in our team members' career aspirations by offering access to an annual professional development allowance and additional leave to access training, workshops, and resources that enable them to enhance their skills and stay abreast of industry trends.”
