The Nudge Good News Series – Cooperation and collaboration within the civil industry

A good news story of cooperation and collaboration within the civil industry. With support and assistance from Nudge, two recently completed Cert II Civil Construction trainees with BMD Construction, Rakeam Jones and Adam Evans, have been successfully transitioned to Armadale Access Alliance (AAA) – a joint venture between Laing O’Rourke and BG&E. Rakeam and Adam will now complete a Certificate III Civil Construction Traineeship with AAA.

Rakeam and Adam commenced with BMD Constructions in January 2019 on the BMD Kwinana Freeway project, and both completed their Certificate II Civil Construction earlier this year. Rakeam and Adam are extremely thankful and appreciative to BMD of the learning and experiences they gained in starting their careers. With that project completed, Nudge was able to support and facilitate the move to a new project with a new employer, to enable these young men to continue their learning and further develop their careers in the civil industry.

Nudge Service Delivery Manager and Mentor, Matt Paki mentioned, “This is a fantastic outcome for Rakeam and Adam who have shown great commitment in their careers and development, so it is pleasing to see this opportunity arise for them. Full credit must go to BMD and AAA for supporting, encouraging and endorsing this shared transition opportunity for Rakeam and Adam, this is great cooperative leadership”.

Nudge is always happy to facilitate the transition of trainees, to ensure good strong outcomes for trainees and allow the industry to continue developing and growing its people as well as its own capabilities and capacity.

Well done to BMD and AAA and congrats to Adam and Rakeam on this new journey.

Please stay up to date with Nudge as we continue to support and highlight trainees over the coming months.
