Newcastle Coal Infrastructure Group (NCIG) has received approval from Anti-Discrimination NSW to conduct targeted female recruitment in an attempt to bolster the number of females holding technical roles within its business.
NCIG CEO, Aaron Johansen, said NCIG is committed to diversity and believes both genders bring unique talents to the workplace.
“Our business is supported by many females in business related roles such as Finance, Safety, IT, Environment and HR, but we have recognised our technical roles have relatively low female participation,” he said.
“We believe females have a lot to offer in terms of collaborative character traits and unique ways of problem solving and that’s why we are looking to recruit more women into theseroles.”
NCIG is currently seeking applications for female Technicians to join their shift roster.
Technician crews are responsible for ensuring the smooth handling of coal through the terminal. This includes both operating and maintenance activities with the key focus being safety and efficiency.
Modern facilities and state of the art equipment combined with a commitment to innovative thinking and unique culture makes NCIG a sought-after place to work.
“We are searching for females with existing trade experience-that could be in the electrical or mechanical fields,” he said.
“NCIG encourage any females with an industrial trade background to apply. Interested applicants are encouraged to visit the NCIG website for more information.
Applications close midnight Monday 5 October 2020.
