Local Development

SH Build has a proven record in providing employment opportunities for Indigenous Australians and is committed to providing growth and development opportunities through employment, training, support and mentoring. We engage Indigenous Australians in all areas of the business through employee, subcontract and supply relationships.

Relationships and networks

Our team goes above and beyond when working in remote communities to build relationships and networks with local service providers and community members ensuring contracts are completed smoothly without impacting on the local community, their traditions and culture.

Part of the community

SH Build has donated materials to assist with training programs, has provided support through sponsorships and donations, and has donated staff to assist in setting up for funerals, community celebrations and festivals.

Indigenous workforce

SH Build's Indigenous workforce consistently exceeds 40% and we endeavour to continue to exceed this in years to come. We have established lasting relationships with Employment and Training organisations to assist with engagement and retention and look forward to building on these partnerships.

Training and career advancement

We have a real commitment to training and upskilling Indigenous Australians and offer opportunities for apprenticeships and certificates. In 2012 SH Build engaged an Indigenous Apprentice who in 2014 was awarded Master Builders NT Carpentry Apprentice of the Year and then in 2015 was signed off as a fully qualified carpenter.

SH Build currently employs Indigenous workers from within the communities we are engaged but also have a core crew of Indigenous workers that travel from Darwin and remote communities to fly to other remote sites in which we hold contracts. One of these workers has been successful in securing a Carpentry Apprenticeship with SH Build which involves attending block releases at CDU and travelling from his home town Daly Community to all areas in the Territory.
