How has the Fulton Hogan Graduate Program been beneficial to your development?

The graduate program gave me the opportunity to be involved in diverse projects with different people across the business. This was very valuable experience at the start of my career because it helped me to learn to become adaptable and work in a variety of team environments.

What has been the most interesting thing about your job?

The asphalt industry is currently working towards embracing circular economy principles and the use of sustainable materials and energy sources. The asphalt industry is a very high volume industry – our products are literally right outside your front door – so there is the potential to make a big impact in terms of sustainability.

Why do you enjoy working at Fulton Hogan?

Fulton Hogan has a genuinely positive culture and has supported me undertaking further study to improve my technical skills. I work in a fantastic team with people who make me look forward to coming to work.

How has the Fulton Hogan Graduate Program been beneficial to your development?

The Fulton Hogan graduate program gave me the opportunity to step outside of my comfort zone all while knowing that I had a great support network to lean on, whether that be my peers in the grad program or my managers. As a fresh graduate, having such a great support group allowed me to build on my confidence while working on a fast paced construction site. My first project on the graduate program was the Monash Freeway Upgrade Stage 1, it was such an eye opener, I never thought I’d be able to take lead on the works that I did and be so supported throughout it.

What has been the most interesting thing about your job?

The most interesting aspect about my job is the diversity that each day and project brings. Every project I have worked on has put me in a different environment, from the Monash Freeway Upgrade to Hoddle Street Upgrade, which has meant I have needed to adapt to different locations, people, environments and risks. My job gives me the opportunity to spend time on site where I can see how things get built and in the office where we work on planning these works with my peers.  It’s great to work on real problems and know that I’m contributing the solution.

Why do you enjoy working at Fulton Hogan?

A great part about working at Fulton Hogan is the relationships I have built with colleagues through every project I have worked on, including the lessons I have learnt from everyone I’ve crossed paths with. Another great aspect of being a part of the Fulton Hogan team, is being able to drive past the work you have been a part of, knowing that you have directly contributed so positively to our community.

How has the graduate program been beneficial to your development?

Fulton Hogan’s Graduate Development Program has plenty to offer when it comes to developing professionally and personally. For me, after graduating from university and into my first few months I honestly felt a bit lost and confused. However, Fulton Hogan’s Mentor-Mentee program helped me to find my feet early on and I have found that you really do get back what you put in. My mentor has helped as a guide to keep me accountable towards my goals and has been proactive in setting up opportunities to challenge myself to learn and grow to exhibit the REAL values.

What has been the most interesting thing about your job?

I am excited to be a part of the Metro Treatment Program where Fulton Hogan Utilities work hand in hand with our Client, Urban Utilities, and design partner, SMEC. The amazing thing about this is that I have been able to work in close collaboration with people from both sides to create long lasting relationships. In doing so I have been able to gain exposure and learn within not only Fulton Hogan but with our partners as well.

Why do you enjoy working at Fulton Hogan?

The people and the culture are why I love to work here at Fulton Hogan. From the first day everyone I have met has been friendly and supportive. We band together when times get busy however we always have a laugh along the way. Also the Fulton Hogan Utilities team here in Queensland enjoy joining in on competitions and challenges. Recently we joined the Push for Better challenge and successfully raised $1000 to support the Mental Health Awareness organisation Headspace. Overall my time at Fulton Hogan has been very enjoyable and filled with many opportunities that you just need to put your hand up for.

How has the Fulton Hogan Graduate Program been beneficial to your development?

Rather than starting a new role with Fulton Hogan in one office or location, the graduate program has opened me up to the business as a whole – this is a major benefit of working as part of a vertically integrated system. It gives you a much broader business knowledge of what really goes on in and around the Fulton Hogan business. In the end, this helps me to understand and tackle each new problem that arises from my past skills and knowledge.

What has been the most interesting thing about your job?

Getting out and about and seeing all the different things that happen in the business. From a financial perspective, I find it really interesting to be involved in all the different financial activities that go on in Fulton Hogan. Always make my job exciting and challenging.

Why do you enjoy working at Fulton Hogan?

The people. I can say from day one I have never really had a bad day in the Fulton Hogan business. The great team culture starts from the top and filters down to everyone else really shows across the Fulton Hogan group.
