Parking and public transport

What to wear
There’s no strict dress code at AO, but different teams have their own unique style.
As you might expect, our business savvy Financial Services team like to sharpen up for the day ahead opting for a business casual attire Monday to Thursday and dress down Fridays.
On the other hand, other teams like to take a more laid back approach to what they wear, turning up for work in whatever office-appropriate outfit they feel comfortable in.
We’d recommend wearing whatever you’re most comfortable with when you’re just starting out. You can decide what works best for you after you’ve got a feel for what the vibe is in your team.
Lunch, brews and snacks
You won’ go hungry when you’re in the office.
We have free snacks, drinks and fruit that you can help yourself to. There’re also tea points on each floor fully stocked for you to make a hot or cold drink, and fridges for you to store your lunch.
We’ve also got The Park – our canteen. From breakfasts to delicious lunches, the offering changes throughout the day so there’s always something available to satisfy your hunger pangs. Don’t worry about bringing your coins, this is a cashless canteen. We will show you how you can top up your AO pass onsite, which will simply come out of your next pay.
Lastly, we’ve got an onsite Starbucks for whenever you need a caffeine fix, quick snack, or just a welcoming space to have a meeting or catch up with your fellow AOers. Same as the above, just tap your AO card and enjoy your cuppa.
