Jak Civil are passionate about creating opportunities for the best people to be a part of our team.
We collaborate with providers such as Max Employment, Salvation Army Employment Plus, Skillhire, Forrest Personnel and Great Southern Personnel in our search for dedicated, committed workers – and we commit to giving those workers the opportunity to develop valuable skills sets and pursue rewarding career paths.
We continually improve the skills of our staff through our focus on professional development in-house and via external training providers.
JAK Civil have a strong interest in Indigenous engagement and Indigenous-owned businesses - read more here. We encourage and employ Indigenous apprentices, team members and locals within our business.
In addition, we actively engage with MJB industries (part of the Hovey Group), whose similar focus has resulted in the addition of 13 Indigenous employees to their team. We work with Aboriginal Workforce Development to find opportunities for Indigenous employees, and provide opportunities for school excursions and work experience through South West Clontarf Academy.
We were pleased to host Indigenous Professional Services (IPS) Director Kristal Kinsela (NSW Aboriginal Woman of the Year 2017) and Business Development Manager Doug Green, who visited The Hovey Group to observe our operations and speak to some of our indigenous workers.
JAK Civil have participated in Cultural Awareness Training with Perkins and BILYA (Building Indigenous Leadership for Youths and Adults), and built a strong relationship with the Wirrpanda Foundation.
