Career Development

Working at T+T provides a rich learning environment for people to grow and develop every day on-the-job.

You're in the driver's seat when it comes to your learning, and tapping into the wealth of knowledge, expertise and formal development within our environment is vital. That's why at T+T, we take a 70:20:10 approach to development. This framework looks at the whole package when it comes to the way we learn new skills or knowledge. Our most effective learning happens when we maximise on-the-job experiences (the 70) and share learnings with others (the 20). Formal learning events (the 10) supplement your knowledge, but it's only when we apply it to our work that the real magic happens.

Our specialist Learning & Development team coordinate a wide range of courses, videos, articles and conferences throughout the year which cover a variety of disciplines, at different levels. We encourage our people to share their learnings, and reinforce new skills and knowledge on-the-job.

Development Discussions

Ongoing, informal development conversations are part of life at T+T. Catching up with colleagues on a regular basis makes life that little bit easier and helps keep our people on track for reaching their development goals.

We also set aside time every 90 days for people to formally discuss their development goals on a one-to-one basis. This is a chance for our people to reflect on what they’ve achieved, talk about career aspirations in relation to T+T’s vision, agree development objectives for the next 90 days, and put an action plan in place. Our people are our best asset, and these conversations ensure time is dedicated to supporting people reach their potential.

Coaching and Mentoring

We employ some of the most talented people in the industry who provide first-class coaching, guidance, and support on-the-job. Our collaborative approach enables staff to work with diverse range of coaches who bring unique skillsets and knowledge.

We also have a formal mentoring programme, allowing staff to tap into a very talented pool of internal and external mentors. The programme is a voluntary process to assist the growth and development of our talent as both professionals and people, and is targeted toward intermediate and senior level employees.

Study Assistance

We offer both financial assistance and some time away from work for tertiary study associated with our people’s field of expertise.

Professional Memberships

T+T covers the fees of a professional membership subscription to assist our permanent employees with keeping up to date with developments in their field of expertise.

Our underlying philosophy is to arm people with the skills they need to become accomplished in their specialist areas. We're committed to developing our people so they can reach their full potential!
