First Nations Traffic Management
First Nations Traffic Management changes lives.
In conjunction with our capability partner First Traffic Management we have been actively employing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in construction careers on major projects throughout Victoria for the past 4 years. Come join our family.
What we love to do!
Traffic Control – We supply skilled traffic controllers to your civil construction project and help you meet your Victorian Indigenous Social Procurement target.
We recruit, medically assess and drug and alcohol test all our staff to provide our clients a safer, more reliable and productive worker. Using our services will also assist you in meeting your Victorian Indigenous Social Procurement target.
Employment – We provide long-term employment and career opportunities for First Nations people in the civil construction industry. We are committed to making a difference to Indigenous employment and understand the positive effect that comes from regular employment.
If you are looking for work in the construction industry, even if you have no previous experience, then please contact us. First Nations Traffic Management will provide you with all the Workplace Health and Safety and Injury Management training to get you started.
Training – Our Indigenous employees commence as trained Traffic Controllers, then embark upon a pathway of up-skilling and career development into their chosen fields of expertise.
We strategically place new employees with skilled workers on cottage work sites to train and mentor them to a standard which will be expected on major projects, whilst building up confidence and experience in a less intense environment.

First Nations Traffic Management is proud of putting safety first. We place the highest level of importance on safety beliefs, values and attitudes – and these are shared by ALL employees and management within the company.
This positive safety culture has been methodically transferred from our sister company, First Traffic Management, which has achieved ONE MILLION HOURS WITHOUT HARM – ZERO LTIs and ZERO WorkCover claims.
- We work from a ‘duty of care’ position with regards to our staff, our work colleagues and members of the public.
- We are committed to preventing incidents that may lead to injury, illness, pollution and property and environmental damage.

What sets First Nations Traffic Management apart from every other Aboriginal business in the Victorian construction industry is our “Partner Program” which offers every indigenous employee an opportunity to become a shareholder and partner in our business. This Program has increased retention and gives hope and a future to our employees.
