Fulton Hogan Cadetship program is designed to develop operational skills, leadership capability and technical competencies all within a supportive cadetship community that encourages individual development.
Cadet Learning and Development
All learning and development is structured for the cadets by the Training Manager to fit within local needs. Canterbury region currently has a monthly operational training programme which includes up to 16 days combined classroom and outside training.
Cadets will be assigned with a “buddy” at each rotation. The buddy will be someone who works in their rotation dept and has significant experience. Buddies can help the cadet learn all on-site tasks and be at hand to provide advice and awareness in their new role.
The Mentor Program is a personal development relationship between an experienced employee (mentor) and a Cadet (mentee).
Cadets will be assigned a mentor for the duration of their two year program. The primary role of mentoring is to guide and support the development of a Cadet.
Mentors form a workplace partnership between themselves and the cadet, which provides the opportunity to share professional and personal skills and experiences and to grow and develop in the process. It is based upon encouragement, constructive feedback, openness, mutual trust, respect and a willingness to learn and share.
Employment Contract & Remuneration
Employees selected for the cadet program will be employed on a 2 year fixed-term basis starting on minimum wage with review within first 12 months.
Rotation Performance Appraisal
A short performance conversation at the end of each rotation is required where cadets and their direct Manager will complete the review together and forward it to the Regional Training team. This gives Fulton Hogan visibility on the ongoing progression and feedback on cadets as they work through the programme.
This program is for secondary school leavers who have successfully completed year 12 or 13 and are 17+ years old. There is no minimum qualification requirement for entry to cadetship; however, a restricted driver’s licence is preferred.
Timeframe of Program
Two years, with the view to identifying the cadet’s preferred team/area during that time for future permanent placement.
A “rotation” is a period of work experience within a department undertaking a range of set tasks that will develop the cadets’ operational knowledge. The program requires the cadets to complete up to eight rotations, of approx three month each.
All trainees will be offered the opportunity to work toward an NZQA national certificate.
Throughout the two year cadetship, the trainee will collect a portfolio of training undertaken which will support their National Certificate requirements.
Beyond the Program
Following the completion of the program, Fulton Hogan will endeavour to place all cadets in suitable positions within the company taking into account all cadet preferences for positions and locations.
