“I see my role at Multhana as not just a job, but a career pathway.”
As one of Multhana’s newest employees, Jasmine is eager to learn as much as she can to further her career in landscaping and environmental sustainability. Having recently completed her Cert I in Conservation and Land Management, Jasmine joined the Landscape Services division in early March 2021.
Moving to Brisbane in mid-2020, Hervey Bay born Jasmine identifies as being from the Kamilaroi mob, whose land extends from New South Wales to Southern Queensland. Also known as Gamilaraay, the Kamilaroi people are one of the four largest Indigenous nations in Australia.
Jasmine has been put forward as a candidate to undertake her Cert III in Landscape Construction, as an Apprentice with Multhana.
What does a day at Multhana look like for you?
“Currently I am working on a project at Greenslopes Private Hospital, where we are carrying out pre-construction preparation works before we commence the hardscaping of the hospital’s green spaces.”
After Greenslopes Private Hospital, Jasmine will transition over to the Bruce Highway, Caboolture to Steve Irwin Way Stage 1 project, which will see her expanding her experience to include hydro mulching, turfing, planting and the establishment and maintenance of landscaped areas alongside the highway between Caboolture and Pumicestone.
What has your experience at Multhana been like?
“The team are all so supportive and encouraging, it makes all the difference. I am so appreciative of everything this role has to offer. Coming to work is an enjoyable experience, it is one of the best places I have worked at. I am also really enjoying being able to put my knowledge into practice.”
Multhana currently employ more than 175 people across South East Queensland, with 35 in the Landscaping Division. Of these 35 employees, 40% identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander.
Do you have any future goals?
“I would like to progress my career in the Landscape Services division. I see my role at Multhana as not just a job, but an opportunity for growth – a real career pathway.”
