GE works on things that matter.
Great people and advanced technologies working together in energy, water, healthcare, transportation, aviation and finance. We put our imagination to work developing solutions to help move, power, cure and build A&NZ in unique ways and surprising places.
GE has been part of the local landscape since the 1890s. We provided the infrastructure for Brisbane’s tramway and installed the electric motors that still power Sydney’s Pyrmont Bridge. Today GE in Australia and New Zealand employs around 6,000 people and operates through several businesses.
GE traces its beginnings to Thomas A. Edison, who established Edison Electric Light Company in 1878. In 1892, a merger of Edison General Electric Company and Thomson-Houston Electric Company created General Electric Company. GE is the only company listed in the Dow Jones Industrial Index today that was also included in the original index in 1896.
Today, GE employs over 300, 000 people in more than 150 countries around the world, including 40,000 in the Asia-Pacific region. People are our greatest asset and we employ people with jobs that range from biochemists to finance specialists to wind energy engineers.
Geoff Culbert is President and Chief Executive Officer of GE Australia and New Zealand. He is responsible for all GE operations across energy, water, oil and gas, locomotives, aviation, healthcare and financial services in the region. Australia and NZ is one of GE’s largest and fastest growing global markets.

At Grant Thornton, talented people are at the heart of our strategy. They drive our success across more than 130 countries that we operate in globally.

Whether it’s in shaping strategies for our clients, or influencing our firm’s culture and future, we want our people to think for themselves and have a voice.
Yes, results are important. But relationships count for so much too. We feel privileged to work with our clients: we take the time to understand what’s important to them, and we provide the unique insights that deliver business benefits.
We value the individuality and authenticity of our people, and we value the fact that our people come from all walks of life. The fact that people can be themselves at work enriches our firm and allows us to be even more effective advisors.
The team triumphs over the individual – always. We want our people to collaborate, to combine and connect information in new and unique ways to develop the insights that our clients crave.
We’re the Brisbane-based accountancy firm that’s different from a number of perspectives – our culture, our approach to client services, our Open Book Management (OBM) environment, and our size.

O’Connells OBM specialise in providing clients with a kaleidoscope of pro-active tax and business services – that’s what we do. But it’s more than just attending to compliance matters; it’s about taking a holistic view of client’s affairs and taking ideas to them to improve their overall financial position, security and independence.
Central to our success is an energetic passion for what we do, an optimistic attitude, an ability to build relationships with our clients and team and a unique talent development program.
Each year, we offer a number of Graduate and Summer Vacation positions to students studying towards a commerce/business degree and satisfying the pre-requisites for the Chartered Accountants Program requirements.
