At BAC, we know our success begins with our people, because it’s our people who shape our culture and reputation.
With a work force of around 300, we are a relatively small team; however we manage one of Brisbane’s and Queensland’s biggest and most important public infrastructure assets.
To put it into context, what happens at our airport has the potential to affect millions of travellers, as well as airports and airline schedules across the nation and the world, so we take our responsibility very seriously.
While the safe and efficient operation of Brisbane Airport is our core focus; our business is much more complex than first meets the eye.
Brisbane Airport is a suburb in its own right and we manage everything within our 2700ha land holding, an area bigger than most local councils, including utilities such as water, sewage, power and communications, as well as planning, building and maintaining critical infrastructure and roads.
More than 420 different businesses are also located at the airport offering services such as freight and aircraft handling, warehousing, transport and communications, manufacturing, research, property and infrastructure development, education and training, recreation, tourism, leisure and retail.
We are also one of Queensland’s largest companies with an estimated value of over $7 billion, contributing millions to the economy annually. If BAC was a listed company, we’d rank as one of Australia’s largest top 100 companies.
BAC is proud to support the personal and professional development of staff and we offer our people exciting professional challenges and personal development opportunities, with time out for fun, creating a highly motivated team focused on the strategic delivery of services and products.
While we enjoy a relaxed and friendly work environment that celebrates personal achievements and encourages individual personalities to shine through, BAC staff do so in a manner that shows pride in their work and respect for others.
