Read our Q&A with Anè below and hear more about her positive experience with our company.
How was your experience being part of the CIMIC Group Graduate Program?
The graduate program allowed me to experience all aspects of the business. My rotations covered work winning, project delivery and commercial positions. I was able to rotate across a number of different sites varying in size and complexity and even spent a rotation in Brisbane. Broad provided a great balance of independence and support encouraging me to get the most out of the program.
How would you describe working at Broad?
Working with Broad provides a great opportunity to develop a diverse range of skills and capabilities in your chosen field. Broad places significant value on their employees which gives you access to a great team to learn from!
What is the most challenging part of your job?
Constantly needing to think on your feet, problem solve and plan ahead. Often a number of tasks on site are interdependent and you need to consider what effect a change in one will have on the other. It’s crucial to understand the job, programme and documentation to make the right decisions when necessary.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
Getting to see the finished product and knowing you were a part of it. It puts all the hard work into perspective and really makes you appreciate just how many people it takes to complete a project.
What are the benefits of working on site?
Projects are always unique. Each comes with its own challenges, construction methods, subcontractors and clientele - it’s never boring. Being site based can be very hands-on and for me means I get to interact with a variety of stakeholders from foremen to architects and clients.
What message would you like to give to young students out there who wish to build a career in construction?
Always have an open mind and give everything a go. Your first job may not necessarily be your dream job but take from it what you can, apply yourself and always look to push yourself. Hard work goes a long way and doesn’t go unnoticed - you’ll gain a lot of respect from those around you and build a professional reputation in the industry.
