Hear from one of our Cadets

"A cadetship at BY Group as allowed me to grow personally. It’s allowed me to manage my sporting and university commitments. It’s helped my younger sisters start talking about working in the construction industry because because they’ve seen how well I’ve done and how far I’ve come in such a short time. And within my community I’ve been able to have conversations with young Indigenous people where they are now interested in my job because I’ve broken the stereotypes."

– Summer Dan, Cadet Contract Administrator
