At Connell, we don’t take the traditionally structured career pathway and apply it to all of our
staff. Instead, we understand that individuals bring their own unique strengths, skills and
experiences and that you might also have different career ambitions to other staff. Because of
this, we pride ourselves on tailoring your career path based on a direction that mutually aligns
with your desires, and our business goals.

The opportunities within Connell cover the full civil construction spectrum, from apprentice
pipelayers and excavator operators to qualified foremen, supervisors and engineers. The

the existing boxes then we would love to discuss how we can broaden your opportunities.
