BMD demonstrates our commitment to employees through a range of practical, forward thinking and focused initiatives, including both formal and informal training and development opportunities, as follows:
Tertiary Education: BMD encourages employees to undertake further study in areas such as civil engineering, accounting, law, business administration, human resources and marketing. A number of employees have gone on to masters studies both nationally and internationally.
Traineeships / Apprenticeships: BMD supports and encourages our team to undertake further training and professional development. These programs include Certificate 3 and 4 in Civil Construction, including pipe laying, road construction/maintenance and bridge and marine construction.
PDP Chartered Status for Engineers: In conjunction with Engineers Australia, BMD provides staff with a systematic program of professional development to achieve Chartered Status – the pinnacle of independent practice for engineers, and a passport to international recognition and new career opportunities with BMD. This formally recognised agreement is applicable to all types of engineering work.
Our commitment to providing ongoing personal and professional development opportunities for our staff extends across all disciplines with full subsidy of relevant approved courses, supported by a genuine desire to see all BMD Group employees realise their full potential of engineering work.
BMD's commitment to its staff and local communities is definitely what sets it apart from its competitors. The beauty of a company this size is that it is large enough to win the large jobs but still small enough that your managers know you by name.James Smith, Project Manager, BMD Constructions
