OGFC - Career Networking Survey and Job Opportunities

An exciting off-field initiative to kick off the 2018 season, sees us launching a number of career development initiatives for our players, including career connection evenings, and casual and permanent work placement programs.

In order to facilitate these initiatives, all players and supporters are encouraged to complete a 2-minute survey (see button below) which will allow us to create a networking database to leverage off for career advice and mentoring capabilities.

In addition to creating our very own career networking program, it has become evident that we can also assist in promoting job opportunities to past and current players.  Some vacant positions that we are looking to help fill at present are as follows:
OGS Civil Engineering students wanted for part-time or preferably full-time work on iconic Melbourne engineering projects. Working for a top tier Engineering Contractor - you will gain great experience which could possibly lead to a graduate position once you have completed your engineering degree. Contact Charlie Fairbairn 0424 036 717.
PMY Group (whom past player Sam Long is employed by) are currently looking to hire a Project Manager based in Sydney and a senior Project Manager based in either Melbourne or Sydney in a full-time position.
See below linkedin links for more detail on the two roles:
