MIGAS Apprentices and Trainees is searching for six outstanding apprentices and trainees to join its key client Origin for a career in the CSG industry.
CEO of MIGAS, Craig Westwood, said the mechanical, engineering and plant operations apprenticeships would be hotly contested.
“We received 658 applications for similar positions last year so we are confident in getting a very strong pool for this intake,” Mr Westwood said.
“For the applicants this is the first step toward them entering the workforce and we want to help them take that step with confidence and as little stress as possible.”
“MIGAS and our partner, Origin, have organised a series of community barbecues as it is important to be on hand to answer questions about how to apply face to face.”
Orign's General Manager for the Condabri, Talinga and Orana Asset, Alex Kennedy-Clark, said the company was keen to provide employment opportunities for local people to start a career in the region.
"These apprenticeships are an important part of our local employment commitment to the communities where we live and work,” Ms Kennedy-Clark said.
Applications open on October 15 and the free community barbecues for potential candidates will be in Roma, Miles and Chinchilla the following day.
Origin’s apprenticeship development program combines on-the-job learning, professional and technical training, mentoring and career development opportunities within the CSG industry.
“I urge people interested in these apprenticeships to come along to the information sessions as it’s a great opportunity to meet the people you’ll potentially be working with while getting all your relevant questions answered,” Mr Westwood said.
The new recruits will join 11 other apprentices already at Origin progressing through their apprenticeship.
MIGAS and Origin have been working together since 2016 to create and promote employment opportunities for the local community and build skills within the region’s key sectors.
Applications close on November 4.
