CareerTrackers Indigenous partnership continues to grow our diversity

27 Feb 18

For the second year running, CPB Contractors’ partnership with non-profit Indigenous internship organisation, CareerTrackers, has been formally recognised for excellence.

Since signing our 10-year partnership with CareerTrackers in 2010, more than 100 Indigenous university students have completed internships with CPB Contractors, and we are proud to have a talented and growing Alumni group connected to our company.

Jasmine Ryan, a HR undergraduate based in NSW, was recently named the CareerTrackers 2018 Mark of Excellence winner for her contribution to the partnership, our Indigenous and Social Inclusion strategy, and the broader CareerTrackers program.

Jasmine was part of the team that co-ordinated CPB Contractors Indigenous and Social Inclusion Forum in Sydney in late 2017 – the first event of its kind held by our company in NSW.

The forum served to drive further social participation within our supply chain – connecting our senior leaders and projects with more than 60 representatives from Indigenous businesses and social enterprises operating in NSW and the ACT.

Further forums are now being planned around Australia to support our commitment to providing employment and training opportunities for people experiencing disadvantage.

“It was incredible to have my work with CareerTrackers and CPB Contractors recognised, and I would like to thank my CPB Contractors managers Maree Ansey and Sarah O’Neill for giving me the challenges and opportunities that contributed to me receiving the award,” Jasmine said.

“I am looking forward to joining the CIMIC Group Graduate Program in 2019 and being a role model for future undergraduates, to help enable their contributions and achievements.”

CareerTrackers intern Annie MacLeod, who works with our Corporate Legal team, and Graduate Engineer Daniel Oberthur, were also awarded coveted CareerTrackers ‘Gold Diaries’ for achieving high distinctions in their studies in 2017.

In 2017, CPB Contractors received CareerTrackers Most Valuable Partner award for our outstanding commitment, participation and leadership.

Over the summer vacation (2017-2018), CPB Contractors placed two pre-university and 19 university students into Indigenous internships at our projects and in our corporate office, across disciplines including engineering, HR, legal and finance.
