Welcome to the Ten-Year Club
Further to celebrating Intract’s 10-year anniversary, we also celebrated three very important employees who have been there with us since the beginning – Neil Clarke, Jarrad Clark-Rantassa and brother James Clark-Rantassa.
John Briggs is incredibly proud of Neil, Jarrad and James, he says of their input in the last ten years;
“Intract is Closing the Gap. All the hard work invested into transforming this idea into reality, to witness the growth of the staff that are still here some ten years on is what it’s all about.”
“Neil, James and Jarrad have been invaluable and instrumental in the company’s success and we wish to formally acknowledge their hard work and efforts.”
John presented them with a commemorative certificate and new Tissot watch to mark the occasion. We also took the time to sit down with them and talk to them about their time at Intract and how it has impacted them.
“I started at Intract as a junior Labourer, and in the last 10 years while working for Intract I have become an experienced Operator, and have gained the tickets necessary for this. I enjoy being on site and getting the experience operating a range of plant. I am passionate about learning new skills and in the future, I would like to further my skill set by doing further studies to become a Supervisor. Working at Intract has shown me that hard work pays off and to keep your goals in your vision and always look forward.”
“I started at Intract as a junior Labourer, and in the last ten years I have become an experienced Operator and more recently I have started a Certificate IV in Supervision. I am ambitious and driven. I like to set myself challenges, so I have something to strive towards. Intract has given me the opportunity to work on different sites, and given me exposure to aspects of the civil construction Industry. I was honoured to be the first recipient of the Annual Intract Des Nichols Award in 2017, and I look forward to completing my Certificate IV in Supervision, and I will soon get the opportunity to be a Supervisor on a project run by Intract. The biggest lesson I have learnt at Intract is the importance of safety and being a role model to new people in the industry.”
“I started at Intract as a junior Labourer. In the last ten years I have become an experienced Operator and I have really enjoyed this role. I enjoy bringing the experience I’ve gained, as well as my commitment and efficiency to my team. In the future I would like to move into an operations role. My favourite part of working at Intract is having the opportunity to travel. I have travelled across Australia in varying roles, and a lot of the people I have met in my travels I still keep in contact with. My biggest accomplishment so far is buying my own house, and the biggest lesson I have learnt is – hard work pays off.”
