Want to do things differently?

Join our team of change makers


Join a team committed to using the power of business to create a positive impact for our team, clients and community – all while having a bit of fun along the way

We’re a forward thinking group of business advisers with a knack for creative thinking and a talent for spotting opportunities. Our focus is on what matters most to clients – whether that’s making more profit, creating greater wealth, saving time or of course, being more tax effective.

When you join the O’Connells OBM team you can rest assured you’re not going to be operating within a sausage machine – where information simply comes in and gets spat back out with little thought or discussion. 

Our open book management (OBM) environment gives everyone in the team the opportunity to think, act, and feel like a business owner. You won’t find any thumb twiddlers here, but you will find a diverse and driven team excited by the possibilities that come with an ownership culture. 

From monthly business and professional development days, ample training / personal development budgets, and autonomy to own your career path (with comprehensive support), we’re all about providing a platform to help  you grow into the best version of yourself. 

Additionally, for those in our advisory team, individual revenue targets are set at 80% of the market expectation – meaning you effectively have a day a week to develop yourself, a service, to improve a process or deepen relationships.

We continually hear feedback from our team that our people & culture make O’Connells OBM a great place to work, and the proof is in the pudding. We were awarded Innovator of the Year in the 2017 Australian Accounting Awards, were Brisbane’s first certified B-Corporation, have been recognised in the Annual BCorp ‘Best for Workers list’ five years in a row, and most recently were certified as an official Great Place to Work, so you can rest assured that you are joining a team that is using the power of business to create a positive impact for our team, clients and community- all while having a bit of fun along the way.
