Robert Cazzolli, Managing Director - D&D Group said "Last Thursday night, Geoff Hogbin (D&D Industrial Relations Manager) and I were invited to meet with the AES and our new employees to welcome them to D&D. We participated in a ‘yarning circle’ where our stories were shared. The enthusiasm and excitement that our new recruits showed for their new career opportunity was outstanding."
"Our company culture supports diversity and inclusion. We welcome the new recruits to the D&D Traffic Management family and look forward to supporting them to ensure they have valuable career opportunities. I extend my gratitude to Rob Dickerson (AES), James Bourne (AES) and Rohan Tobler (AES) and Geoff Hogbin (D&D) for coordinating and managing this entire process." he added.
