Hear why Tim from GCG employs UQ Occupational Health and Safety Science graduates


– Hey I’m Tim, and I’m GCG Health Safety
& Hygiene’s Client Partner. When I was in high school, it wasn’t clear what I
wanted to do. I had no idea. What I did know, though, is
that I’m a restless person, someone who can’t sit
still for a long time, and I wanted to find a career where I’d have lots of change
and variety in what I do. OHS is pretty amazing. I’m
a bit of a safety nerd, but what it allows you to do is to step into any
workplace in any industry, whether it’s aviation,
defence, construction, mining, anything you can imagine,
and learn how it works. You do get the big toys all the time, so you’ll commonly walk into a workplace and be blown away by what you see. We have three Brisbane UQ graduates in our GCG team here. They’re great to work with, I learn way more off them than
I am ever able to teach them. It’s a fantastic sort
of set of relationships we’ve got there, and we love
working together all the time. It’s really important that
we get fresh people in that have grown up with
devices in their hands, and have grown up around computers, to help assist the changes that are happening in the workplace. Networking is a super powerful tool, and industry placements are
one of the most valuable things you can do as part of your study, to get a foot in the door with industry and to get a job after you finish uni.
