"Main Roads is an organisation that supports its employees in many ways. I've always felt valued and important - I know my input matters to my colleagues and the organisation as a whole, and that's a powerful feeling." - Tricia Hartley, Business Graduate (Information Technology)

"Being a graduate of a specialised field, Main Roads has fostered and allowed me to develop at my own pace, all the while providing endless opportunities to develop my own skills. Main Roads obviously regards its development employees as a significant investment in the future of the organisation." - Gavin Jackson, Technical Graduate (Spatial Science)
