The building and construction industry shares a lot of the same things as footy – enjoying the outdoors, working with your hands, and being part of a great team.
As any great sportsperson knows, it’s important to keep your options open. CSQ works to introduce building and construction as an excellent supplementary career option for players young and old. A number of Broncos have gone on to have construction careers after they’ve hung up their boots. If you're thinking a career in construction check out our career seekers' info on how to get started.
