Girls Academy is delighted to announce a new partnership with UGL, a member of the CIMIC Group.
UGL is a leader in end-to-end asset solutions across a range of sectors, including design, construction, manufacturing, operation and management.
The company aims to develop a meaningful partnership with Girls Academy, one which provides real benefit for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls in the program.
“This partnership reflects our commitment to work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations to create local employment opportunities,” UGL Managing Director Jason Spears said.
UGL will work closely with Girls Academy’s post school transitions team to develop career pathways for students.
While UGL will initially focus on building relationships with Academies in Sydney and Dubbo, the company is keen to expand the partnership into other regions where it operates.
“We believe in supporting the communities in which we operate and building long-term relationships that make a difference,” Doug Moss, the Executive General Manager Transport and Technology, said.
Girls Academy CEO Ricky Grace welcomed UGL’s support. “Our ultimate goal is for the girls to be in meaningful employment and financially independent,” he said. “We see enormous potential in this partnership, with the breadth and depth of UGL’s operations. We look forward to working with them well into the future.”
