Rail industry career opportunities through Pilbara Indigenous Association

Posted: April 30th, 2012

Filed under: , , , ,

Indigenous people will soon have a greater opportunity to work in the rail construction industry through a new joint initiative between the Bloodwood Tree Association and international construction company Laing O’Rourke.

Under the proposed program, which is expected to commence later this month, Bloodwood Tree clients will undertake an initial four-week training program with the Association, before starting a six-week Certificate II in Rail Infrastructure with Laing O’Rourke.
Those involved in the course will learn basic skills to prepare them for employment, and everyone who graduates from the program will then be offered employment opportunities through the company.
The initiative will promote local rather than ‘fly-in, fly-out’ recruitment for companies such as BHP and FMG who work in the Pilbara, and encourage community development.

The Bloodwood Tree Association is a not-for-profit Aboriginal corporation based in South Hedland that seeks to help the Indigenous community in a variety of ways, including employment programs, services for homeless people and substance abuse programs.
