Intract Australia is committed to engaging and creating job opportunities for Indigenous Australians – ‘Closing the Gap’ on Indigenous employment.
This year we wanted to show our appreciation to our clients who have proven their commitment to engaging and creating job opportunities for Indigenous employment.
We developed an award to do just that – Intract’s Annual NAIDOC Award.
To be short listed for the award, we looked at clients who have demonstrated strong leadership qualities that align with Intract’s fundamentals. Here at Intract we believe we demonstrate fierce competitiveness when it comes to meeting Indigenous targets such employment opportunities, providing training outcomes and upholding cultural protocols through every project.
The below criteria captures these elements and this includes:
- Positive approach to engagement of Indigenous enterprise
- Providing positive employment outcomes
- A profitable working relationship
- Mutual respect of our commitment to ‘Closing the Gap’
- Collaborative approach whilst working with Intract
We are happy to announce this year’s winner was the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources (DEWNR). Lee Morgan, Manager Drainage Operations, Natural Resources South East for the Water Conservation and Drainage Board, was the recipient of the award and was awarded by John Briggs, Intract’s General Manager of Southern Australia, and David and Andrew McMahon, Directors of McMahon Services.
There were four other clients nominated for the award:
- JLL Augility

All four clients were awarded a Certificate of Recognition during NAIDOC week for their commitment to creating job opportunities for Indigenous employment. Demonstrating that Closing the Gap on Indigenous employment is everyone’s responsibility.
Intract would like to congratulate all clients who were nominated and thank them for their ongoing support.
Intract looks forward to presenting the award again in 2018.
