The Value of Trust

With a Bachelor of Construction Management coupled with four years’ experience working in the construction industry, I joined APP’s Graduate Program as I was ready to take on new challenges and progress my career.

I was immediately trusted to assist in the delivery of large projects, including the rectification project for Oaks Festival Towers in Brisbane’s CBD, and benefitted from the guidance and support of the senior staff steering me in the right direction.

APP has a diverse portfolio of projects which was what originally drew me to the graduate program. After having the opportunity to meet some of the senior staff and hear more about my future career prospects during the recruitment process, I could really see myself fitting into the program and how it would help me broaden my learning in a condensed time period and assist in defining my career path.

The contributing factor to my growth and development has been APP’s trust. Joining as a graduate, I had some preconceived notions that I would have more of a hands-off, observe and learn role, but from day one that wasn’t the case at all. From the start I’ve been given many opportunities to take ownership of my work which has helped me challenge myself and continuously improve in my role. The constant guidance and support of senior leaders has been an added bonus and has given me confidence when I’ve needed it.
