Bryant appreciates each Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community is different and often requires its own tailored approach. Each has its own diverse and exclusive culture requiring a ‘toolkit’ of methods and techniques designed to meet their changing needs.
That’s why we have established a Murri Partnerships Team.
The manager of the team is Jason Smith, a proud Yindinji man and a qualified cabinetmaker with over 30 years’ experience in the industry. Jason is passionate about his work, sport and finding innovative ways to increase the participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the construction industry.
Jason created Bryant’s Indigenous Employment and Training Program, under which we employ, train and nurture local Indigenous people and help them develop their work skills during a construction project.
Bryant was honoured when Jason received the 2013 Construction Skills Queensland Excellence Award for Construction Indigenous Person of the Year.
The award recognises his leadership, commitment and motivation to inspire other members of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to pursue careers in the building and construction industry.
It is also testament to our commitment to working in partnership with community to provide employment and training opportunities for our First Australians.
