“I recently became a new dad to a beautiful baby girl. We lived in Sydney and loved it, but with our wider family living in Queensland, we knew we needed to be closer to them. I spoke to my manager about my options, and we came up with a plan for me to work remotely in Toowoomba while still supporting my stakeholders in Sydney.
"When my little girl was born, my partner wasn't able to take much time off for maternity leave. However, I had the opportunity to take 12 weeks' parental leave and some annual leave I had saved up. Overall I had almost five months off work to be with my daughter while my partner worked part-time. If it wasn’t for the support I received from my manager and CommBank, I wouldn’t have been able to relocate or take time off to experience being a new dad.”
