Our people

Downer has a proud history, dating back more than a century in both Australia and New Zealand, and our company has been built by bringing together teams of great people to deliver excellent work for our customers.

Today, Downer employs about 20,000 people, mainly in Australia and New Zealand but also in the Asia-Pacific region, South America and Southern Africa.

The health and safety of Downer’s people is our first priority and Zero Harm is embedded in our culture and fundamental to the company’s future success. Zero Harm means sustaining a work environment that:

  • supports the health and safety of our people; and
  • minimises the impact our business has on the environment.

Downer is committed to ensuring that we have a diverse and inclusive workforce which fulfils our employees’, customers’ and shareholders’ expectations while building a sustainable future for our business. This commitment and philosophy is captured in our Diversity & Inclusiveness Policy.
