Johnathan Thurston and his team at the JT Academy team are dedicated to working with individuals to reach their personal, educational and career goals. The Academy supports all aspects of employment; from education and community, right through employment workshop coordination, and connecting job seekers to industry partners.
The Johnathan Thurston Academy is proud to be working in conjunction with our major employment partner Lendlease, to help create meaningful and long-term job opportunities for people across Queensland, with an initial focus on the Townsville and the Sunshine Coast regions.
Lendlease is a globally integrated real estate and investment group with core expertise in shaping cities and creating strong and connected communities. Lendlease has been entrusted with many projects of public, cultural and social significance: constructing the Sydney Opera House, building the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in New York, and restoring and renovating historic buildings such as London’s Tate Britain and National Theatre.
About the Project
Lendlease’s current project, The Cairns Convention Centre will undergo a $176 million expansion and refurbishment to maximise the Centre’s capabilities, modernise the facilities, and bring new business to the tropical north. The expansion will support up to 570 jobs over the lifetime of the project, with ongoing employment opportunities in hospitality, logistics, security and maintenance. Works have now commenced, and the Cairns Convention Centre will officially re-open bigger and better than ever in early 2022.
