Bring on wonderful work.

We're on a mission to bring new and uplifting experiences to our guests, transforming flying from simply 'nice', to something wonderful.

Like any good mission, this one starts with our people.

Which is why we encourage our team to embody the fun, laid back, authentic spirit we've become famous for. Because when they're free to be themselves, they're better able to own their personal responsibilities and go the extra mile to help our guests.

Hello. We’re Virgin Australia. And we’re back (in a big way).

We’re the airline that’s always done things a little different. Our way. The Virgin way.

  • Guide all squads to use Agile/Scrum practices and values in a practical manner that increases team efficiencies.
  • Coach leaders, teams, and Scrum Masters in Agile practices and mindsets.
