University partnerships

At BADGE we believe it is our responsibility to nurture and develop the next generation of builders. We want to provide opportunities for graduates studying construction to apply their knowledge, which is why we partner with Queensland University of Technology and the University of South Australia to offer scholarships.

Students enrolled in the Bachelor of Construction Management & Economics or Bachelor of Urban Development (Construction Management) can apply through their university and the scholarship is awarded based on academic merit, professionalism, teamwork, community contribution and cooperation with peers and university staff.

All recipients undertake paid work experience with us to help them gain the experience necessary to complete their degree. On graduation, we may offer the student a full time cadet position with professional development, mentoring and vocational guidance.

Interested and eligible students should contact their university directly for more information.

We also offer undergraduate placements for students studying construction with our teams in WA and the Sunshine Coast. Interested students should send their details direct to hr@badge.net.au

Leadership development

BADGE has made a significant commitment to developing the capacity of its senior staff through the introduction of a formal leadership program. Our leaders across the group participate in training sessions conducted by our Chief Executive and each participant receives support and development to create their own personal leadership plan.

Club 25

BADGE runs a group-wide internal training program for young staff called Club 25. Members are provided with internal training, mentoring, networking opportunities and a tailored personal and leadership development program. They are also given exposure to various operations across the group and the opportunity to interact directly with the company’s senior management and executive team.

Mentoring

To give back to the industry, a number of our experienced and senior staff are involved in mentoring and developing other team members. We encourage our employees to seek out their own mentors if they wish or they can speak to their Business Unit Manager or Group HR Manager to discuss further.
