The ongoing success of Zancott Knight benefits our employees, contractors, clients and community, as we work in partnership to close the gap between Indigenous Australians and the Australian business community.

As an Indigenous business we are committed to endeavours focused on closing the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australian’s in areas of health, education, life expectancy and career progressions. Strategic partnerships with Indigenous organisations and suppliers, and a commitment to continual reinvestment into our local communities drives our achievement of economic empowerment and job creation, creating a positive change for Indigenous Australians. 
We are committed to:

  • Utilising 10% of profits in support of Indigenous groups.
  • Engaging our community of Supply Nation Certified Indigenous businesses as a first preference.
  • Growing a workforce of Indigenous employees in all aspects of our business.
  • Supporting the wellbeing of our Indigenous employees and their families.
  • Initiating training and upskilling for our Indigenous employees so that they leave our organisation a better person.
  • Driving community engagement with a broad range of Indigenous companies through mentoring and supporting growth.
  • Achieving social procurement outcomes for our clients.

Our clients place a high degree of trust in us when they commission us to create their dream, and as such, we are continually driven to exceed their expectations. Both our employees and subcontractors operate in accordance to our corporate social responsibility guidelines, with policies surrounding workplace health and safety, environments and sustainability and social procurement.

Diversity &
Inclusion

Our ongoing commitment to the recruitment and training of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples is reinforced through the development and implementation of our own Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). It supports the development of businesses and communities in the many regions in which we operate.

We are committed to extending and growing our partnerships with local communities, regional organisations and peak bodies to support growth, employment and capacity building. Our long-term vision is to expand the professional hub of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees to incorporate more diverse disciplines, professions and backgrounds. In turn, this will lead to advancements in education and professional development.

Indigenous
Engagement

We are committed to closing the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians in the areas of health, education, life expectancy and career progressions. In an effort to achieve this, 10% of our profits are donated to support Indigenous groups.

The key to our future strategic direction is to grow our partnerships with Indigenous communities, regional organisations and peak bodies to reflect our commitment to support growth, opportunities, and capacity building. We see our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan as an important step in achieving these goals.

The long-term vision of the Zancott Knight management team is to create a professional hub of Indigenous employees from a range of trades, professions and working backgrounds that operate with the common goal of advancing Indigenous health, education and employment opportunities. Our corporate strategy utilises our local industry to support our operations, providing a robust and adaptable project delivery style that ensures effective delivery on any work site.

Our company strives to benefit both the local communities we work in and Indigenous Australians. As our business grows, we will grow the Indigenous community around us.
