Transurban

We’re an Australian-owned company and we build and operate toll roads in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, as well as in Greater Washington, United States and Montreal, Canada.
We design our roads for the long term, and are continually working to deliver real and lasting benefits to cities and their communities. 
In 2017 we began working with the financial counselling, community welfare and legal assistance sectors to improve the way we detected and responded to customers experiencing social and financial difficulties.
This resulted in the recent establishment of our first dedicated hardship team Linkt Assist, officially launched in February 2019. 
We have also introduced a dedicated phone line for community practitioners advocating on behalf of clients with tolling debts, intended to make it easier for you to support your clients.
Please call Linkt Assist on 1300 110 129 and we will work with you to develop solutions tailored to your client’s individual circumstances and capacity.
For more information on our plans to become a more socially and financially inclusive organisation, see our report When hardship is a factor in tolling debt
 

Herbert Smith Freehills

At Herbert Smith Freehills, we believe that everyone should have equal access to justice and opportunity. We are committed to using our expertise, resources and leadership to ensure that equal access to justice and opportunity is a reality through our pro bono and community programs. The four areas of focus for our program are homelessness, reconciliation, disability and health, and building the rule of law. We provide pro bono legal advice to marginalised individuals and not for prot organisations. We provide systemic advocacy, take on clients through legal clinics and send our lawyers on pro bono secondments.
 

Ethical Jobs

EthicalJobs.com.au is a job-search site for people who want to work for a better world.  We list community jobs, environmental jobs, not-for-profit jobs and social enterprise jobs that contribute to a more equitable, more just or more sustainable world.
We've noticed that increasingly Australians want the work we do to make a difference. Unfortunately, though many of us would love a job where we feel we're contributing to a better world, many people are unable to find one.
That's why we started EthicalJobs.com.au - to bring together people and organisations with a passion for sustainability and justice, to provide resources to help people find a job that makes a difference, and to help organisations with a social or environmental mission to find the best staff they possibly can. 
We’re also committed to supporting Australian community groups and organisations by making regular donations to organisations we think are doing good work to make the world a more just or more sustainable place. Every two months we match donations up to $25,000 to an Australian NFP organisation.
Each year, we also run the Not-For-Profit People Conference, the biggest event of its kind in Australia, to explore best practice in attracting, managing, training and retaining people in the NFP sector.
We are a fast-growing community of people and organisations dedicated to making the world a better place and this year marks our 10 Year Anniversary!
