Kyriah Willacy

Graduate Engineer | Infrastructure Services
Bachelor of Civil Engineering, Central Queensland University
What’s the coolest thing about your job?

My job is about providing engineering and project management support in a range of surfacing projects. Some of the benefits of working for Fulton Hogan in Mackay include: working for a smaller team within a large company, the variety of projects and responsibilities, and the flexibility of work hours. By not being surrounded with as many professionals working in specialised areas, you are naturally granted with greater responsibility helping to achieve your professional goals quicker.

Why do you enjoy working at Fulton Hogan?

I enjoy working in an atmosphere which provides plenty of opportunities for learning and growth. I have been involved with a few different projects, various clients and a variety of internal operations. No two projects are the same and you always gain new experiences from them.

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

The Graduate Program has helped me develop my professional skills by providing opportunities other employers don’t offer. Opportunities such as: on-the-job training and support, a mentor who offers support and career guidance, networking both internally and externally and spending time in other departments.

Linden Chapman

Site Engineer | Construction
Bachelor of Civil  Engineering & Bachelor of Commerce (Finance), Monash University
What’s the coolest thing about your job?

When working on the bigger construction projects, one of the epic aspects of it is the sheer scale on which we are able to build these projects. Some of the piling rigs on site are in excess of 20 metres tall with cranes to match. How we coordinate all these massive pieces of equipment, sometimes in very tight spaces, to achieve our end goal is pretty awesome!

Why do you enjoy working at Fulton Hogan?

Fulton Hogan provides a vast number of opportunities and operates differently to other construction companies: FH seeks to work within the community, for the community – to give back to the community as much as possible.

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

The Graduate Program sets out a list of items that you should have an awareness of as a graduate. This list, in conjunction with the Engineering Career Development Framework that Fulton Hogan Construction offers, can help a graduate start compiling information right from the start of their career to help become a Chartered Engineer when they are ready. The program is self-driven and allows you to take the initiative to seek out and talk to experienced engineers about different engineering topics and to tap into the wealth of knowledge that the company holds within its people.

What’s the coolest thing about your job?

Being able to see what you’re working on come together, with a real structure or system coming to life (and not just on a piece of paper…)! Being out on site, as part of a team making a difference is so rewarding, especially being a part of the critical water industry – makes it feel like all the work being done is helping to keep the Adelaide water system running.

Why do you enjoy working at Fulton Hogan?

The people and culture at Fulton Hogan are what make this job so great. Everyone is so welcoming and willing to help you learn, answer your questions and assist to make sure everything comes together. For such a large National company, everyone on all levels recognises and appreciates you as part of the team, even as a graduate, which has really assisted my transition into full-time employment.

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

The Graduate Program has been beneficial in allowing me to experience and work on a number of jobs throughout the 18 months, giving me exposure to not only different styles of projects, but also working alongside a large number of employees that are all so willing to help you learn and share their experiences.
