​Former NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian Gets Job At Optus

The former leader of New South Wales, Gladys Berejiklian, has a new gig.

Telco Optus has confirmed to The Sydney Morning Herald that Berejiklian will join the organisation as head of enterprise, business and institution on February 28.

Optus' chief executive, Kelly Bayer Rosmarin, said Berejiklian would be a 'game changer' for the company.

"To deliver on our vision, we need to think and do things differently, and we need to attract amazing people who bring diverse experiences and new ways of thinking to our industry," she told The SMH.


"In bringing our business-focused teams together under this newly created role, I truly believe that our collective energies can deliver superior customer outcomes in market segments that continue to be dominated by the incumbent."

Berejiklian said she was 'excited and proud' to join Optus.

Berejiklian resigned as NSW Premier in October after nearly five years in the top job.


She had been a member of the NSW Parliament as the member for Willoughby since 2003.

Her resignation came after the state's Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) announced it would be investigating the politician over allegations she engaged in conduct that involved a breach of public trust.

The probe looked into the legitimacy of Berejiklian awarding grants to several community organisations over a six-year period, and investigated the personal relationship the Premier had with then-NSW MP Daryl Maguire, and whether that influenced her decision to give grants to the politician's area.

Berejiklian's departure opened up the path for Dominic Perrottet to become NSW Premier.
