Working at North East Link Authority

Howard - Project Manager

I wanted to join the North East Link Authority because of its great potential.

To work on what could be the biggest infrastructure project going around really excites me.

As an engineer I definitely want to be part of that.

Katie - Director, Land Planning and Environment

I love working on major projects and on projects that make a difference for Victoria.

North East Link is a city-shaping project so I was really excited to be a part of that.

I’m passionate about the project because I think it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to contribute to something that’s really going to help shape Melbourne and Victoria into the future.

You’re part of a broader family of major projects under the Major Transport Infrastructure Program.

So we have the benefit of working with teams delivering level crossing removals, the Metro Tunnel, and the West Gate Tunnel.

North East Link Authority is a new forming authority.

So being a part of an organisation from the start makes it really different.

There’s a different kind of energy in the place.

Everyone’s really keen and enthusiastic to try new things.

I’m also part of really dynamic and engaging leadership team which continues my enjoyment working at NELA.

Sheetal - Manager, Reporting

NELA is dynamic.

The people are amazing to work for.

They bring a strong work ethic with them and a culture of inclusiveness.

The work/life balance it’s provided me has been amazing because it gives me a chance to balance home and work life, but also deliver the work challenges that I am presented with which are opportunities for growth and development.

I think if you’re a go-getter type of person, who’s willing to challenge themselves, who wants to learn and develop, I believe NELA is the right project.

[Vision: Howard speaking]

The environment and the people that will really help you achieve your full potential.

This is the chance to really get in on the ground floor of a project that really only comes along once in your life.

It’s Infrastructure Victoria’s highest priority road project.

[Vision: Duncan Elliott speaking]

It’s got very strong support in the community.

And it’s a project that I think we’re all going to enjoy being part of.
