Our fantastic Indigenous engagement continues with another two trainees heading up to a long term client site in Karratha. Trainee Dylan is planning for the future by taking this opportunity to learn skills in the oil and gas sector, he says;
“To be able to work alongside experienced operators and tradesmen in a high risk environment really sets high expectations and standards that I will take as the norm once I complete my traineeship. I hope I’m the first of many young Indigenous trainees to have this chance to change my life for the better.”
Our client is committed to supporting local contractors through traineeships and apprenticeships offering valuable opportunities for young indigenous kids.
The IMC group, through our joint venture partnerships, work hard to implement our Indigenous Employment strategy which is key to providing real opportunities especially given the added intricacies of working on a Major Hazard facility that we find at this site.
Our next trainee, Western O’Mara (pictured) grew up in Karratha and completed High School locally. After moving to Perth with relatives and working in hospitality, Western applied for the traineeship at IMC NEMMS JV and was successful. Western has moved back to Karratha and is very happy to have the opportunity to work at a gas plant even though he admits he found the environment daunting to start with.
We are proud to have created an environment open to trainees and we are committed to offering ongoing support as they make their way through the first steps of a career in the resources industry.
