Civil Careers Paths
When you join the Civil Construction team, you’re not just starting a new job. You’re starting a career with a community of supportive, skilled and passionate people. We begin by offering every member a training plan, noting career and remuneration progression based on deliverables such as skills, attitude and application.
Alongside training and mentors to guide you in your chosen direction, we firmly believe that becoming a competent part of this industry takes a commitment of five years - ten thousand hours on the job, developing your skills, surrounded by our team of specialists.
We also work closely with Connexis to provide tertiary construction-based training. Take a look at the chart below to find out how it works.
In 2018, CCL began a relationship with Cromwell College allowing students to visit live construction sites and also took on two students for work experience. One of these has gone on to take up full time employment with the company.
Kate Borrie, the career advisor at Cromwell College had this to say:
"As Careers Adviser at Cromwell College, I have worked with Scott Sutherland at Civil Construction on a number of occasions
during 2018. Firstly, Scott gave a presentation at school to students who had an interest in the Civil Construction industry. Later, at Scott’s invitation, I took a minivan of male and female students to the Northlake Subdivision. Scott showed us the different Trades working there and what each one involved.
In addition, Scott took two Y12 students for a work experience opportunity. One of these, who was an at-risk student, ended
up gaining employment and an apprenticeship with Civil Construction. He was a different person. His parents and the
school were deeply appreciative that Civil Construction had provided a meaningful pathway for him.
I have also been impressed with how staff at Civil Construction are treated based on my own observations and conversations with an ITO staff member as well as a student who had spent time there.
Accordingly, this company is one I have confidence in sending secondary students to for work experience placements."
