If you buy private health insurance with the LG Health Plan through HCF, we will pay your excess (up to $500) if you (or an eligible family member) are admitted to hospital. This reduces your premium and saves you money.
Local Buy is an Equal Opportunity Employer
We strive to provide equal employment opportunities to all internal and external candidates and will not discriminate towards any applicants on the basis of race, colour, ancestry, place of origin, political belief, religion, marital status, family status, physical or mental disability, gender (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, age or conviction on a criminal offence unrelated to employment.
We are committed to developing a business culture that respects and values all employees and business enterprises no matter their background. This includes, without exception, employees of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent and engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses. We believe that providing equal opportunity in all our employment decisions as well as valuing diversity in the way we conduct our business is a matter of employment obligation, natural justice and our own legal responsibility.
We ensure that the talents and resources of employees are utilised and that no job applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment or any form of discrimination on the grounds of disability; or is disadvantaged by conditions or requirements that cannot be shown to be relevant to the key responsibilities of each job and the employees’ ability to perform the job well. We will actively manage diversity, finding ways of utilising the differences that exist, to improve our business. Above all, we are committed to ensuring that all employees feel included and are treated with respect and dignity.
