Learning and Development


We are committed to supporting the ongoing development of our employees. We endeavour to provide our employees with the development they need to achieve their personal and professional career aspirations, through a variety of structured training and development programs, tailored to individual employee needs at all stages of their career.

"The people working at Main Roads provide a lot of training as well - things that can't be learnt from books and courses, things that are learnt in the field from people that know what they are doing which is vital in developing a career" - Sean Rose, Engineering Associate



We provide employees with the opportunity to take part in learning opportunities that will develop and refine their professional and personal skills. There are a range of corporate programs, as well as access to job specific training and development for employees to be involved in.
