Urban Maintenance Systems is very proud of its involvement in The DOXA Cadetship program and acknowledge the benefits that our company obtains from the partnership, culminating in our cadets developing into outstanding professionals. Catherine Nguyen commenced the DOXA Cadetship Program with Urban Maintenance Systems in May 2012. Catherine is currently studying a Bachelor of Commerce, majoring in Marketing and Management at the University of Melbourne.
UMS exposes cadets to all areas of the business from Finance and Human Resources to Marketing, and assigns mentors to guide cadets throughout their Cadetship journey.
The ability to revolve around the business and be provided with opportunities and to participate in projects within the different areas of the company, ultimately contributed to Catherine’s realisation of her passion for Marketing and Human Resources Management. Her Cadetship at UMS continuously assists in her professional development and puts theoretical studies at University into real work practice. Catherine explains that: ‘’Coming from a disadvantaged background, the opportunity to gain real work experience has provided me opportunities which I would not have had!’’.
The DOXA Cadetship program has provided an opportunity for UMS to partner with a community organisation that is enriching the lives of young people.
Since 1992 The DOXA Cadetship Program has offered talented young people from disadvantaged families the opportunity of a tertiary education. DOXA also provides a camping experience where training activities are undertaken.
The DOXA Youth Foundation (DOXA) is a not-for-profit organisation formed in 1972.
- – Vision is to improve the life outcomes of disadvantaged children and young people.
- – Mission is to create opportunities for disadvantaged children and young people by providing education related programs that help them achieve their potential and meaningfully participate in the community.
