MIGAS employs hundreds of apprentices and trainees, working across an incredible variety of industries in both small business and multi-national companies in manufacturing, to mining, automotive, construction, energy and public works.

That means our community is diverse and includes people from all walks of life – and that’s just the way we like it. But, it doesn’t happen by accident. We’re proud to work closely within local communities, and our extensive network of host employers, to develop the next generation of skilled tradies.

Diversity in trades

Encouraging women of all ages to consider a career in trades is the future of Australia’s skilled workforce. We believe Australia’s skills gap is an opportunity to fill the gender gap in the manufacturing and engineering industries by inspiring women to pursue apprenticeships.

MIGAS is widely known as an equal opportunity employer and is sought after by some of Australia’s leading employers to create diversity in their workforce by sourcing Indigenous, female, and mature age talent to take on challenging and rewarding apprenticeships.

School engagement

MIGAS proudly sponsors the Red Frogs “Life After School” program designed to educate school-leavers about career and support options to transition successfully into life after high school.

Famous for attending Schoolies and offering a helping-hand to “worse for wear” party-goers, the Red Frogs crew would always be ready with an Allen’s Red Frog lollie. The Red Frogs crew can now be found in 15 Schoolies locations, every major Australian university, and offer educational programs reaching more than 40,000 school aged students each year.

Indigenous Employment

As part of a Reconciliation Action Plan, MIGAS has developed an Indigenous Employment Strategy to increase opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The objective is to form respectful partnerships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations, communities, families and individual people in a way that creates employment opportunities.
