Welcome to our new apprentices!

We’re excited to announce the commencement of our 2020 apprenticeship programme at our Kwinana Workshop.

This year we have taken on 15 apprentices, a significant increase on last year’s intake of 11 which was the largest of its kind across the Kwinana industrial strip. Pleasingly, the intake includes three female apprentices.

We invited the apprentices and their families to a welcome lunch at its Kwinana Workshop on Sunday, 2 February. The lunch was hosted by key members of the Company’s leadership team, including co-founder and Managing Director, Chris Ellison, and Chief Operating Officer, Mike Grey.

Mr Ellison welcomed the apprentices to MRL and presented them with their new toolkits to ensure they were prepared for their first day on the job.

The new MRL employees and their families were also introduced to their supervisors and taken on a tour of the Workshop to familiarise themselves with their surroundings and workstations prior to starting work this week.

We are proud to welcome the next generation of passionate and talented workers to Mineral Resources and are confident they will help drive the continued success of our Company.

To best support the Company’s growth plans and the broader Western Australian mining industry, we identified and targeted specific skill sets that we anticipate will be in high demand in the coming years. Engaging with young people who are keen to learn and apply their skills across our operations will help ensure the sustainability of our business.
