Jobs on offer as Coast and Cairns firms join forces

A new office in Noosa and more job opportunities are on the cards as two businesses in Maroochydore and Cairns join forces.

Managing director Jeffrey Bess said the formation of The Partners Group created an exciting opportunity for the firm to take on a broader scope of work, thanks to the combined skill, experience and expertise of almost 50 staff who will be located in Maroochydore, Noosa, Cairns and Mackay.

Mr Bess said the current Noosa operations were set to expand soon with a new office at Noosa Junction opening soon.

“We’ve been looking at ways to expand our capabilities since relocating into our new office in Maroochydore earlier this year,” he said.

“We’ve known and respected the work of Black & More’s directors Tony Black and Greg O’Brien for quite some time and it made a lot of sense to combine our resources to broaden our opportunities.

“Both firms are very complementary to one another and now we’ve got a combined skill set that we believe will help deliver more infrastructure for Queensland and enhance communities across the state”.

Mr Bess said more than half of the group’s staff would be based on the Sunshine Coast as he saw the Coast office as a base that complemented staff in other regions for delivering major northern Australian infrastructure development projects.

“We are now set to help deliver major infrastructure initiatives such as the Queensland Government’s Building Our Regions program which includes the record $20billion Queensland Transport and Roads Investment Program and the Federal Government’s Developing Northern Australia White Paper,” he said.

Mr Bess said joining The Partners Group would also provide staff with the opportunity to undertake broader projects across multiple office locations as well as the ability to learn new skills.

“The opportunity to leverage off the expertise of the expanded team and take on new projects in the private, local and state government sectors will be a great incentive in recruiting and retaining staff on the Sunshine Coast,” Mr Bess said.
