MAINBRACE

You can earn money anywhere. Here, you’ll get much more.

Let’s be real – earning good money matters. There’s plenty of work out there and you’ll have options.

At Mainbrace, we value you, not just what you build.

Here, you’ll be rewarded with great pay and a fair few other benefits on top. But you’ll also get much more. We take a long-term view, we support our people and we invest in your future. So, if you’re searching for a great place to build your career, come talk to us.

A culture that really means something

WOMEN OF
MAINBRACE

It’s fair to say that some still feel construction is a man’s world.

We think differently.

Women of Mainbrace

There are always opportunities at Mainbrace, no matter your gender. Working with like-minded people, having opportunities to try new things and show what you can do has brought out my confidence.

We’re committed to achieving 30% female participation by 2030.

Getting to 30% by ‘30’ would see us achieve more than double the industry average, and we’ve got lots happening to help us get there.

We are particularly focused on attracting more females to our project delivery teams and feel as though our project environments and culture are really appealing for females.

About our culture and why it matters

Our culture is supportive, welcoming to everyone and prioritises inclusivity, always. We reject stereotypes and are moving past old-school mentalities. Instead, we’ve laid down the challenge to everyone in our business to call out bias and inequality whenever they see it – and to do it with purpose, knowing we’ve got their back.

Everyone at Mainbrace is alert to the potential for inequality and is proactive about addressing it. It’s something we expect of our people, and we’re a better company because of it.

Our diversity is an advantage

We need different perspectives to be our best for our clients and ourselves. This means providing everyone the opportunity to be heard, challenged and achieve their goals.

We support everyone to build their ideal career at their pace, whatever that looks like.

CADET
PROGRAM

A great place to build a great career

Mainbrace’s purpose is to create environments where everyone can build success. For our team, this comes first.

With so many incredible opportunities for young professionals, there’s no better place to start your career in construction than Mainbrace. You’ll work on innovative and high-impact projects for Australia’s leading retailers, such as Woolworths, Coles, ALDI, and Costco. And with an average employee tenure that’s well above the industry average, it’s a great place to stay and build great things – for both your career and your community.

Your opportunity with us

We understand that delivering exceptional projects for our clients begins with nurturing exceptional talent. So we invest in our team from day one, ensuring clear career paths and offering robust personal and professional development opportunities. A construction cadetship at Mainbrace gives you an extremely well-rounded foundation to determine your career direction.

Here, you’ll get opportunities to rotate through a variety of exciting roles, such as Contract Administration, Pre-Construction/Estimating and Site Administration, all of which are underpinned by our strong principles around Health, Safety, Environment and Quality (HSEQ).

Beyond rotations, you’ll enjoy guidance from mentors and buddies, with a strong sense of community amongst fellow cadets, trainers and leaders within the program.
