Advance your Career with DWS.
Do you have what it takes?
"At DWS I constantly encounter something new – a new puzzle, a new technology, a new solution – and it’s put me in the box-seat to be part of the digital revolution. The rate of change in the corporate world in the last 20 years has been nothing short of stunning, and over that time the roles DWS has given me have always provided the opportunity to work with new technologies, deliver exciting solutions, work across a wide range of industries and expand my personal and professional experience and knowledge. All with the support of dedicated, knowledgeable and friendly colleagues."
"I've been working with my current client since DWS won our first engagement with them - a four week analysis and design job in early 2015. Not quite two years on, and we have a team of 12 software developers working on a major strategic application, we've just helped make their first pure agile project a success, and DWS has been positioned as our client's preferred delivery partner for Asia-Pacific."
"As a senior leader with DWS I am able to leverage my past Defence and ICT experience into one role. Working with a great team and a customer that seeks innovation I am proud to be a part of delivering a business-critical service to meet our customer needs. I really enjoy the connections I get to make with my team and with our customer and its exciting to know we are collectively part of something very important."
Practice Manager - Symplicit
"I’ve been working with Symplicit since June 2016 and it has been an incredibly rewarding yet challenging experience. The team we have are some of the most intelligent, ambitious and warm bunch of experience designers I have ever met. The fact that every day I come into work and leave learning something is a testament to the culture that is embedded in our organisation. Additionally, the support we receive from our parent company DWS means we have the capacity to deliver complete end-to-end service"
"Knowledge sharing is a passion. At DWS, I have the freedom to contribute in areas that interest me, and at a pace that suits my commitments. From one-on-one mentoring with junior consultants, to running certification-based coaching, and even delivering technical lectures to a hundred staff and clients. It's a buzz to help others get ahead in their work and their careers."
"As a consultant, you get hired to fulfill a certain brief in challenging conditions. That's my cake. The icing for me is adding value to the engagement, by facilitating improvement in how things get done. Being part of the DWS community gives me instant access to a knowledgeable network that can speed up the ideation process."
"Joining a project in its infancy, I used my past experience to build a Continuous Delivery capability from scratch with Jenkins. I then conceived and built a dynamic ancillary system to represent the entire program on a page, giving the entire team unparalleled visibility."
"I was a Senior Executive at a Global Tier-1 Professional Services Company. That was great, but after many years of large scale organisational politics, intensity, airports and grind, I was in need of a change. The move across to DWS has been a revelation for me. I have shaped my own leadership role and make a difference by applying my large-scale delivery experiences across the DWS landscape. I actually didn't realise work could be this much fun."
"It's wonderful to have some of the best people in the industry there when you need them. The DWS community is built through strong support of internal networking at regular Social Club events, company meetings and special interest group meetings. This leads to the development of life-long friendships and provides access to a network of professional support, to lend a hand or provide advice to help work through the best way to approach a new challenge."
"I helped improve quality and reliability of an iOS mobile application for a major postal service by setting up Continuous Integration and automated UI tests. As part of a team effort, we were then able to transform the app from being a 2-star app to a 5-star app. When you create a close-knit team, you start feeling like you’re part of a family and the whole team rallies together to solve problems and support each other, as we did with this engagement. Richard Branson once said: “Train people up so that they can leave, but treat them well so that they don’t want to.” I really believe in that."
Senior Business Analyst
"Over the last 10 years at DWS I've been fortunate to work with high-profile clients in finding solutions to highly complex problems. I firmly believe that there is a way forward for every problem given enough thought, the right attitude and the right team around me. Whether the challenge has been to replace a credit card system that has been unsuccessfully attempted 3 times previously, or to launch a new mobile app, my DWS colleagues have always been available to provide support and guidance."
The employee experience
"Investing in our greatest asset; our people"
Learning and Development
We recognise that it is important to stay current in an ever-changing industry. At DWS, we offer our Consultants opportunities to further develop their professional and technical skills through a wide range of approved industry-recognised accreditations. What’s more, DWS actually pays its consultants a bonus upon completion of an approved course.
The DWS Company Social Club is run by Consultants for Consultants. DWS Management actively supports getting the DWS team together and subsidises many Social Club initiatives, including; Friday drinks, coffee catch-ups, family days, movies and theatre nights, sporting events and more. Some social club events are open to partners and family members, and we welcome all into the DWS Family.
Health and Wellbeing
DWS is committed to a healthy and supportive working environment. We offer gym and health insurance membership discounts, free annual flu vaccinations, eye testing, and numerous other annual initiatives to support your wellbeing. Once in a while, you might need a day off just to recharge your batteries. DWS has a unique approach to providing flexibility to our Consultants for an occasional “reboot day”.
Consultant Support Office
The DWS Human Resource Framework delivers a structured pathway for career growth. The HR team regularly connects with our Consultants, and actively encourage all Consultants to reach-out at any time, if assistance is needed. The DWS HR team takes your career seriously, and welcomes the opportunity to discuss your career goals and development. Our leadership team exercises an open-door policy and encourages all DWS consultants to utilise the benefits of the Consultant Support Office. Our CEO regularly invites Consultants to join him for a personal dinner, giving you the opportunity to share your thoughts.
DWS employees can benefit from corporate discounts in areas such as hotel stays, public transport, electronics, corporate clothing, salary sacrificing options, workplace giving, novated car leases and more.
DWS Group Culture
DWS fosters a supportive and inclusive culture, building on our core values of Honesty, Integrity and Transparency. We hold monthly Company Meetings and drinks in each state, providing an opportunity to get updated on the DWS Group business and to catch up with colleagues. We invest in making DWS a great place to work with initiatives such as our Company Newsletter and (famous) DWS Christmas Party. And we have a long and proud history in “punching above our weight” in the Corporate Games; and other organised sporting events. Teamwork, core values, delivery excellence, career path - these things are ingrained into the DWS DNA, and it’s these that make DWS an Employer of choice.
Awards and Recognition
Attaining and retaining great people is fundamental to DWS’ success. DWS proudly rewards its consultants for tenure, with specific Milestones Awards at 1, 3, 5, 10, 15 and 20 years of service. Furthermore, Consultants may be nominated for a Recognition Award by their peers for exceptional contributions they make to a client or to DWS. At an operational level, Consultants can also be financially rewarded through a generous DWS Referral Bonus, where he or she has successfully referred a new employee into the DWS family.
DWS is privileged to have a broad national client base, some of whom have been clients for more than 20 years. This broad reach enables us to present our consultants with the opportunity to work on diverse Projects across many industries including Telecommunications, Utilities, Financial Services, Products, Entertainment, and local and federal Government. Unlike many Consulting organisations, DWS is not in the habit of flying consultants around the country for client commitments, and as such provides for a good work-life balance. That said, given DWS’ national presence, we do offer the flexibility for Consultants to transfer to other DWS locations if that is a personal objective.
