Blackhead is by far an “employer of Choice”. Best company to work for, has best employee benefits/perks, looks after its staff. Our company has the lowest staff turn-over, the company has only had 1 resignation since 2012 and it was because the employee had to move back to their country of origin.

Blackhead brings about a winning and positive culture. It has a great succession plan which allows boundless growth opportunities. It is a great place for young and creative minds to apply their skills and knowledge they possess and let their talent prosper in a progressive working environment.

I started at Blackhead Consulting as a student back in 2014. In the office I have grown from being a student to someone who is now responsible for civil design and construction supervision just to name a few. Today I’m a qualified civil engineering technician and I’m still busy growing within the company, taking on more and more responsibility every day.
