University partnerships

To give graduates and those studying construction the opportunity to apply their skills in a reputable organisation, the BADGE Group has partnered with Queensland University of Technology and the University of South Australia to offer scholarships.

We offer students enrolled in the Bachelor of Construction Management & Economics or Bachelor of Urban Development (Construction Management) the opportunity to apply based on criteria specific to their university. Students must make a written application directly to the university and the final scholarship is awarded on the basis of academic merit, professionalism, teamwork, contribution to their community and cooperation with peers and university staff.

All recipients also 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.

Leadership development

BADGE has made a significant commitment to developing the capacity of its senior staff through the introduction of a formal leadership program. The first cohort of more than 50 managers across the group has participated in training sessions and received support to development and implement a personal leadership plan. Due to the early success and interest in the program, introductory modules are being rolled out to a wider group of staff.

Club 25

BADGE has established 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 firm and the opportunity to interact directly with the company’s senior management and executive team.

The program culminates in a two-day workshop with members attending an Executive Group Meeting with State Managers, the CEO and Managing Director


At BADGE it is important for us to encourage our staff to give back to the industry and to assist young people entering our industry. This can be done by our internal mentoring program we have initiated in South Australia and also more formally by assisting the Master Builders Association Construction Apprenticeship Mentoring Scheme (CAMS).
