Bring on wonderful careers.

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. We’re the airline that’s always done things a little different. Our way. The Virgin way. We’re on a mission to make flying better than ‘nice’. And to do that, it takes a team of talented people who are passionate about customer experience, doing the right thing always, with a focus on safety – in the air, on the ground and in our workplaces. A team who values real diversity and inclusion, in a big brand with big ambitions.

What you’ll be doing

As the Partner Performance Advisor (IOC) you will provide specialist advice and support to IOC Leaders on the performance of Virgin Australia’s key providers.

  • Review third-party suppliers’ performance in line with contracted service level agreements to enable the department to continually improve supplier performance.
  • Advocate better ways of working at every opportunity to ensure that we are constantly evolving into a better business.
  • Lead continuous improvement initiatives aimed at enhancing vendor performance and operational efficiency, while remaining cost conscious.
  • Engage across the business to facilitate understanding of vendor performance and provide continuous support to ensure future success.

  • Discounted flights for you and your loved ones (including $1000 worth of travel credits per year)
  • A flexible, hybrid work style. Work from home or the office, adapt your location to suit your style and needs
  • One of Brisbane’s most admired head office locations, with South Bank train station, a supermarket, pharmacy, and lunch options downstairs plus a 5-minute walk to the Busway, a rooftop restaurant and onsite gym (with a low membership fee) and South Bank Parklands just across the road
