Christine Linden

Head of Small Business Banking, Victoria & Tasmania


Eight years ago Christine’s husband suffered a brain injury in a horrific bike accident. He is recovering and now learning to walk, but still needs 24/7 care. Christine took six months off when the accident happened; then returned to ANZ working flexibly across the week, balancing the need for time in the office, time out with her teams in the market and time at home. Christine is a great example of how you can balance flexible work and still take on challenging roles: she has been promoted several times and now leads a team of 180 people servicing 150,000 customers – all achieved while working flexible hours and accessing ANZ's additional 4 weeks of annual leave to help support her husband’s recovery.
