Our Culture

Our People

Our greatest asset is our people. 

It's a cliche but it's true.

We engage and promote those with appropriate skills, experience and technical qualifications within a flat and open management structure. Graduates in building, engineering and architecture occupy project management, contract administration, design management and engineering positions.  Careful staff selection ensures site managers and foremen of the highest calibre make up the on-site teams. Teamwork, backed by effective communication systems and administration resources, ensures a highly motivated approach to the most challenging projects.

We have a strong graduate program and place significant emphasis on training and mentoring of our cadets and trainee site managers.

Our Culture

The arete way

arete Australia's culture is evident in the way we behave, honour our commitments and collaborate with all stakeholders - clients, consultants, subcontractors, suppliers and work colleagues.

Professionalism, competence, integrity and enjoying what we do are the foundations of the culture; we know our business and believe in ourselves.

Employing young people and mentoring them in the arete way is a key success factor. Our people are trained and empowered to take on new challenges and fulfil their potential and are rewarded accordingly. The need for work/life balance is accepted and as a result arete attracts and retains staff.

We are opportunistic, entrepreneurial and we welcome new ideas. We have a supportive environment and systems which assist us in managing what we do whilst enhancing our performance.
