Indigenous careers in construction

Right person. Right training. Right career.

Our mission is to find the right person, and provide them with the right training to move into the right career.

Our dedicated in-house Indigenous team is helping Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people into construction careers throughout the industry.

Hutchinson Builders has been invited to join some of Australia’s largest companies and those with a proven track record of employing Indigenous Australians, in a partnership with the Federal Government. 

The Employment Parity Initiative was launched by the Federal Minister for Indigenous Affairs in 2015, with the aim of harnessing the influence and support of Australia’s prominent employers to increase Indigenous participation in the workforce.

The Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet has set an ambitious target of placing an additional 20,000 First Australians into private sector jobs by 2020, to ensure Indigenous representation across businesses throughout Australia. The Minister has asked CEOs to champion the cause within their business, industry and broader community to help close the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous – Australian workers.

Under its Statim-Yaga (Start Work) program, Hutchinson Builders has set a bold target to train and place 350 Indigenous jobseekers into employment within the construction industry by 2019. Over the last several years Hutchinson Builders has achieved great success with training and placing Indigenous Australians in the construction industry through our sub-contractors and suppliers. We aim to continue and build on these achievements.
