Facilities management company Morris Corporation, together with Australia’s leading recruitment specialist, WorkPac are creating innovative Indigenous employment opportunities after introducing a new Indigenous Recruitment and Work Ready program. The initiative includes collaboration with several other established stakeholders in the Pilbara Region including Bloodwood Tree VTEC and Ashburton Aboriginal Corporation.

Since the program commenced in September 2015, 10 new staff have completed work ready training and have commenced work in established vacancies from reception to kitchen hands, cleaners and housekeepers at accommodation villages for Fortescue Metals Group.

The joint venture allows potential recruits to attend a three week work ready program that covers everything from health, fitness and general job awareness delivered by Matera Foundation.

This program was made possible with collaboration of multiple stakeholders and thanks to Sharon Jones at GenerationOne for coordinating all stakeholders, including those who provided the following contributions:

  • Fortescue Metals Group: providing accommodation
  • Matera Foundation: delivering the Job Ready programme
  • Shire of Port Hedland: providing gym facilities

WorkPac is committed to actively promoting the benefits of increasing Indigenous participation rates with relevant industry bodies and clients. We assist in developing, promoting and enhancing ‘culturally aware’ work environments through responsive and proactive Human Resource frameworks.Click here
