Indigenous careers created already
I’ve been around the construction industry all my life. I guess it’s in my blood. I started working with small building company when I left high school. The company was run by two brothers and they needed a young bloke to teach and pass on their knowledge. I’ve come a long way from that young bloke that swung a hammer some 22 years ago and it’s my turn to mentor the next generation of builders. There’s something special and unique about the building industry. We invest so much time in our projects that our buildings definitely become a part of us. It’s a pretty special feeling when you’re driving around with my wife and kids and they recognise the building I’ve built. Seeing the pride in their eyes just adds to why I joined the building industry.

There’s no doubt that the Hutchies culture is unique. The company has now been led by four generations of the Hutchinson family and even though we’re much bigger than a ‘Mum and Dad’ business, we’ve held on to the family values that make us who we are. We’re all about relationships; taking care of each other; and working towards a common goal. We’re passionate about staying connected with our communities, giving back, and doing the right thing.
We work hard and we play hard. We celebrate our successes and embrace the good things in life. Around the country, we hold more than 100 social events for our staff each year and make sure that achievements do not go unrecognised.
When I first started at Hutchies I remember thinking this working environment is too good to be true; there is a friendly and positive vibe, fun-hearted banter, people are only too happy to help each other out and there is an abundance of resources at your fingertips. This is also reflected in the social events put on throughout the year; a great way to relax, let your hair down and enjoy a day out with work colleagues and their partners in an environment outside of work.
