Macmahon supports youth development

Macmahon has a long history designing traineeships and development programs for Indigenous people through our Doorn-Djil Yoordaning business.

Currently, 5.5% of our workforce identify as Indigenous. As a business, we are proud of our commitment that has seen us exceed our own targets.

As our business continues to grow, we are in a strong position to provide further entry level employment opportunities to young Aboriginal people that will increase their skill levels via on the job training, mentoring and dedicated support programs to improve retention rates.

We are working to provide skills and training to open up future opportunities for young Indigenous Australians and earlier this year, we collaborated with civil contracting company Carey Mining and our Tropicana Joint Venture Partners AngloGold Ashanti and Independence Group, to develop a highly successful Operator Traineeship “Get into Mining”.

Eight candidates graduated with a Certificate II in Surface Extraction Operations and are now working in traineeships across the mining and exploration departments at the Tropicana Gold Mine.

Following the successful Alliance program at Tropicana, we continue to work with our client Newcrest at the Telfer Gold Mine with a focus on engaging with the local Indigenous community and identifying opportunities for meaningful employment. After conducting site visits and tailoring our assessments to consider Aboriginal culture, we are pleased to now have 9% of our Telfer workforce identify as Indigenous.

Operations at the Argyle Diamond Mine have been part of Macmahon’s portfolio of surface mining projects since 2005. This ongoing, consistently well performing project, boasts an 80% Aboriginal experienced workforce.

Over on our east coast, operations at the Byerwen Coal mine organically employs 17% Indigenous Australians from the Jaanga group.

Macmahon also proudly encourages all of our employees to strive to reach their full potential. Our most recent success story is one of a truly inspirational young Aboriginal man who joined the business as a trainee operator and thanks to his own hard work, dedication and the continued supportof senior management, he has recently qualified as a Mining Engineer and is now undertaking his next challenge of attaining his Quarry Manager’s ticket.

What a fantastic story. Well done Macmahon. It is so great to hear and read about these kind of stories. As your operations are in the 'Outback', it helps to reduce unemployment in those areas and proves that with the correct training for these people, they can get gainfully employed!
