Easternwell supports Indigenous career paths in Western Downs

Easternwell is supporting the development of local Indigenous people in the Western Downs by promoting employment opportunities and supporting the Western Downs Indigenous Careers Program.

Together with Skout Solutions, Easternwell hosted a Recruitment Roadshow in Chinchilla to promote employment opportunities available within the company. More than 20 participants attended the information session to learn more about career paths in the oil and gas industry.

The event provided an overview of the company’s plans for growth in the Western Downs region including the company’s commitment to local and Indigenous employment outcomes as well as application and interview tips to improve job seekers’ chances of gaining employment.

Easternwell has also partnered with Shell QGC and MIGAS to host trainee Amilee Hinselwood in the company’s workshop for 12 months. Amilee is part of the Western Downs Indigenous Careers Program, which provides young, local Indigenous people a career pathway into the oil and gas industry.

The company’s recruitment team participated in a session to discuss and role play the challenges that trainees and employers experience in the workplace and how these can be addressed to create a positive and productive work environment.

It was also a chance to meet with other host companies and share ideas on how to support employment outcomes for Indigenous people.

As part of the company’s Elevate Reconciliation Action Plan, Broadspectrum is committed to creating career pathways for Indigenous people, including into leadership positions. By 2021, the company aims to have 6.5 per cent Indigenous employment within the business.

Easternwell is a subsidiary of Broadspectrum, providing innovation solutions across the social, defence, property, infrastructure, resources and industrial sectors.
