Job Boost x 700
In a huge win for regional WA, up to 700 jobs are set to be created with roles to be filled by local and regional candidates in the Pilbara.
The septuple century of new gigs are the result of infrastructure management firm Ventia being awarded the 10-year master maintenance contract, servicing Chevron’s significant Gorgon and Wheatstone natural gas facilities.
A boon for families living in and around the Pilbara, the news isn’t just a win for workers. Ventia has committed to sourcing half of all subcontracted services from local regional businesses in North West WA.
As part of the contract, tailored career pathways including traineeships and apprenticeships will be rolled out. There will be opportunities for local and Indigenous-owned businesses wishing to expand capability and capacity.
For context, 700 people would fill 9.2 lower emissions natural gas powered Transperth buses to full capacity. That’s almost 10 busloads (or 175 cars worth) of Western Australians who will directly benefit from the scope of the contract.
Bringing economic prosperity to WA while providing an opportunity for lower emissions, the works are expected to kick off from Q3 of 2021.
Sound like an opportunity for you? Stay tuned to www.ventia.com for updates and start polishing up that resume.
