Gladys Berejiklian’s shock new career move is revealed with the former NSW premier set for a huge payday
Gladys Berejiklian has accepted a new job at telco giant Optus four months after her shock resignation as NSW premier.
Ms Berejiklian, 51, has accepted the role of enterprise, business and institution lead at Optus, multiple industry sources told The Sydney Morning Herald.
In October, she stepped down as NSW leader over an ICAC corruption probe into her doomed relationship with disgraced former MP Daryl Maguire.
The move will come as a surprise to those who tipped her to follow in the footsteps of previous premiers and start a new role at the ‘millionaire factory’ – Macquarie Bank.
Locals in her powerbase on Sydney’s north shore said she was ready to start a new job at Macquarie and follow the career path of previous ex-NSW premiers, Bob Carr and Mike Baird.
