MIGAS Values - What We Stand For

At MIGAS Apprentices & Trainees we are driven by a single purpose – to connect talented apprentices and trainees with the right jobs that will set them up for successful, rewarding, and long-lasting careers.

This is embodied in our organisational values.

We stand up for trade apprenticeships

Our reason for being is to create jobs for apprentices and trainees. Together with our Host Employers, they sit at the heart of our business. We stand side by side with our apprentices and trainees from commencement to completion. We take great pride in our knowledge of the Australian Apprenticeships sector, and draw on our expertise to educate, guide and delight our clients, peers, staff and stakeholders. We leverage our know-how to position ourselves as the leading employer of apprentices and trainees in traditional trades and complementary industries.

We celebrate mateship

Our behaviours and actions embody the character of mateship. What you see is what you get. We act as one and offer each other unconditional support. We treat others with fairness and trust each other to keep our word. We are adventurous, open-minded and appreciate that our differences are part of what makes us great. We are sincere, ask for help when we need it, admit to our mistakes, and work to put things right. We don’t make false friends and we mean what we say.

We do what is right not just what is expected

We value our co-workers’ time and effort, and so we always offer our best work, first time. We build open and honest relationships through communicating. Together we celebrate each other’s successes with understated pride. We give credit where it’s due, celebrate diversity and critique ideas, not people. We take personal responsibility for achieving our objectives. We act professionally and with conviction in our words and actions.

We see things through our customers’ eyes

Our customers are our Host Employers. We are accountable for the actions we take to create positive and memorable customer experiences, just as our customers expect us to be accountable to their needs. We approach customer interactions with both physical and mental energy in a way that shows optimism, usefulness and authenticity. When problems arise, we think about things from the customer’s perspective. We act quickly and without blame to resolve issues, find compromise, and create solutions. We work hard at earning our customer’s trust and loyalty.

We keep each other safe

Safety is at the heart of our business and shapes the decisions we make. We talk meaningfully about safe practices and attitudes at every level of the organisation. We give clarity and context to work health and safety to ensure it stays relevant in each of our roles. For us, safety is not just “ticking a box”. We personalise safety outcomes and intimately understand our role in preventing and eliminating risks and hazards, every day. We keep ourselves, each other, our apprentices, trainees and customers safe.
