GHD, one of the world’s leading engineering, architectural and environmental consulting companies has been recognised at the 2013 Property Council of Australia Innovation Awards.

At the event, CareerTrackers, in association with GHD and other property industry partners, won an award for its Indigenous Internship Program.

CareerTrackers is an Australian, non-profit organisation that works with Indigenous university students and private organisations to create career pathways. The organisation currently has 507 cadets in Australia, of which 13 are placed with GHD, making us one of the largest supporters of the program.

Michael Combs, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of CareerTrackers, is thrilled with the result and thanks GHD for its unwavering support. He offers, “It was an honour to be the first non-profit organisation to receive a Property Council Award in its 34-year history, and even more of an honour to be the first Indigenous project recognised.”

Jill Hannaford, GHD’s Service Line Leader for Stakeholder Engagement and member of the CareerTrackers Advisory Board, along with GHD interns Kodi Galleghan and Tammy Parker, helped present the project to the judges earlier in the year.

The Innovation award was the most highly contested of the event, with 20 finalists that included projects and programs from John Holland, Charter Hall, GPT Group, Mirvac and Major Projects Victoria.
