Learning & Development

At SSDS our People & Culture vision is to be recognised by Our People, Our Customers and Our Community as a Great Place to Work. 

We are committed to bringing out the best in our people by providing targeted learning programs focused on developing and enhancing our people’s capability now and into the future.  Our programs are designed specifically for our unique environment and range from specific service line training, through our dedicated Excell Program,  right through to Frontline Management.  Our learning programs are designed to give our people the building blocks to a nationally accredited qualification that can be taken away for life.   

We also focus on enabling and supporting the personal and professional development of our people.  In addition to formal training, our development programs such as performance development, career pathways, leadership development and coaching, are aimed at identifying your aspirations and goals and providing the support to achieve them.
