Your chance to join the Followmont family

Back in 1984, a two-men, one truck operation started something that has grown into Queensland’s largest family-owned transport company. 

Thirty-eight years on, Followmont Transport employs almost 1000 people across Queensland and NSW, and continues to grow. With 22 owned and operated depots in major cities and rural towns, Followmont services every corner, supporting local communities and delivering life-saving medication and household goods. Keeping the shelves stocked for local businesses and making sure the large retailers have everything you need, is all in a day’s work for their team.

Through an unrivalled network and dedication to providing an industry-leading service, Followmont has created security and stability for their team. But what they pride themselves most on is the family culture that’s felt throughout the business.

Managing director Mark Tobin knows that the people are the secret to the company’s success and puts everything back into their development and supporting business growth for the industry’s future.

“Our team are our Followmont family, our investment in people, in equipment, in our depots, is all about providing a future for our people and creating a self-sustainable transport business.

“For us, the most important thing is that we develop a culture where our Followmont family enjoy coming to work every day and will do for years to come,” said Tobin.

Followmont Transport recruit all year round with an internal people and culture team and business partners located in every region, looking for people to join the family who have a can-do attitude and care about the work they do, how they treat their customers and their fellow teammates. With roles in various locations from Cairns through to Sydney, they’re on the hunt for linehaul and local drivers, heavy vehicle mechanics, operational and head office staff.

Darren Cartner has been a local PUD driver at Followmont for over 11 years and always wears his Followmont badge with pride. 

“For me it is special working at Followmont as I have been able to fulfill my passion. It has provided me with the freedom to do a variety of things in the way of charity work and look after specialised customers,” Cartner said.

“The support you receive at Followmont is second to none. It’s a great environment that encourages people to grow, and invests in their equipment. Our workshop in Townsville is amazing, the team love coming in each day and getting to work with Macks, Kenworths and UDs,” he said.

For Melissa Crain, the flexibility that was offered when she returned from maternity leave is what helps create a family culture.

“I’ve been looking after the claims department over my 10 years with Followmont and I was really comfortable knowing that my position was there when I returned to work and Followmont provided the flexibility my family needed for work-life balance,” said Crain.

Mark Tobin commented that the business is all about giving people an opportunity.

“We invest in developing our team and their career progression, and have people at Followmont who have worked their way from assisting on the rollers to now being regional managers.

“It doesn’t matter who you are, how old you are, or where you come from, it’s about the right attitude and living by our family values every day,” he said.
