One of the world’s leading engineering, architectural and environmental consulting companies, GHD, has been recognised by CareerTrackers - a not-for-profit organisation that works with Indigenous university students and private organisations to create career pathways through a structured internship program.

At the recent Gala Awards celebration dinner, GHD received a total of six awards including the Trailblazer Award and the overall Corporate Plus Award for their contribution and efforts in placing Indigenous cadets across Australia.

CareerTrackers currently has 125 cadets in Australia, of which 13 are placed with GHD, making the company the single largest supporter of this program.

Jill Hannaford, GHD’s Manager – Community Consultation & Social Planning NSW was named Business Supervisor of the Year and Peter Dunn, Indigenous Services Business Leader received an MVP Award for his active promotion of the Career Trackers program within GHD and the broader business community.

Peter commented, “We’re incredibly proud of our personal achievements and those of the broader GHD community in making this initiative a success. These recognitions acknowledge our ongoing support of activities marking respect for Indigenous Australians and fostering Indigenous enterprise.”

In addition, two of GHD’s interns received student awards. Charlee-Sue Frail received an Academic Excellence Award for achieving a yearly grade average of distinction in her Political Science and Anthropology degree course with the Australian National University. Devyn Jackamarra from GHD’s Perth office received a Community Award for his outstanding commitment to the development of his own individual community.
