Jobs boom as RAA membership grows

RAA Daily 26 October, 2021

We’re hard at work finding staff to meet increasing demand for our expanding member services, with more than a dozen vacancies advertised and scores more to be filled in the coming months.

Roles are on offer right across our diverse business, ranging from insurance to marketing, IT, shop staff, administrators, vehicle inspectors and roadside patrol mechanics. More than 45 roles have already been filled this financial year.

Our General Manager People & Environment Belinda Vivian said there were exciting opportunities for job seekers currently on offer.  

“While our organisation has been around for more than 100 years, we’re a future-focussed employer with our sights set on growing our innovation, digital, future mobility and technology sectors,” she said.  

“We are already one of the state’s largest employers, and it’s great to be in a position to be offering more employment opportunities at RAA.’’

In the past five years RAA’s workforce has already grown from 847 to 1066 – or 26 per cent – as we expand our services beyond motoring.

Our growth comes despite the pandemic, with membership growing by more than 114,000 since 2016 to include more than 780,000 South Australians.

Ms Vivian said demand for our home and motor vehicle insurance was growing, and we had installed 5,500 solar panels since the service began in January 2020.

She also said last financial year more than 3,300 members engaged a tradie through RAA Trade Assist.  

“And we continue to provide roadside assistance, travel services, vehicle inspections and support for the community through our road safety education and sponsorship teams,’’ she said

RAA employee Geena Suphke began her corporate career at RAA after working as an intern in January 2020.

She took up a permanent role as an RAA Business Innovation Coodinator in March 2020 and completed her university degree.

Geena, who works on future mobility projects, said she was surprised at how innovative RAA was.

“At first I was surprised RAA even had an innovation team or offered an innovation internship,’’ the 26 year old said.

“My job is super dynamic, fast paced and rapidly evolving as we are helping to prepare RAA for the future.

“We have so much licence to be creative, and get great support from senior leadership and the RAA Board.’’
