Our innovation and diversity careers program provides a pathway for indigenous Australian participants to enter the construction and mining industries. We are looking for candidates who are keen to learn and have a positive attitude towards their career development. This career development program is structured in a way that has a combination of theoretical learning and short-term work placements depending on their selected pathway, interest and skills.
Pathway A – Traineeship Program
This is a 10-month paid work experience traineeship program based in Western Australia for enthusiastic individuals. This might be the pathway for you if you are not yet sure what you want to do as a career and are looking to see what happens inside different workplaces and see what could be a good fit for your future career.
Pathway B – Apprenticeship Program
The Pathway B apprenticeship program is for those applicants who already know which career path they would like to pursue. This could be an applicant who has worked or has experience within a selected trade area but has not yet found their formal apprenticeship or traineeship pathway.
