A current graduate with the Department of Transport and Main Roads Program, Jamie is gaining new experiences and benefiting from rotations throughout their time as a Queensland Government graduate. #BeChallenged, #BeHere4Qld

“My time with RoadTek has been both challenging and rewarding.

I’m have been working on quality assurance and management of the upgrade of drainage across various locations in Brisbane. Most sites were delivered at night which meant working out of the ordinary hours.

I have gained vital experience from this rotation and I would highly recommend that other graduates experience working with RoadTek.

My next rotation will be on the Gateway Upgrade North project in the commercial contracts team.”
