Meet Gary

I started working with ESV around six years ago as a safety systems auditor, and now manage the Line Clearance Assurance team. The team works to ensure vegetation is kept clear of power lines; protecting Victoria against threats such as bushfire.

Over the years, I’ve found a true culture of support at ESV, assisting with my professional development opportunities and work life balance. People look out for each other here – it’s an organisation that truly values its people. I’d highly recommend ESV to anyone.
