The Department of Mining and Petroleum (DMP) will continue its commitment to creating employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander peoples, with an Aboriginal Employment Strategy (AES) open day next month.
DMP Director General Richard Sellers said the AES plan was built around a vision of creating positive, meaningful relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
“A key part of that relationship is about ensuring employment and training opportunities at the department,” Sellers said.
“This is why our agency is committed to increasing the representation of Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders in our workforce.”
The Open Day on Friday 6 March at Mineral House in East Perth will have administrative and dangerous goods positions available for applications.
“The AES Open Day is an opportunity for interested applicants to gain an insight into the department’s role within Western Australia,” Sellers said.
“It also provides an opportunity to hear from current Aboriginal employees on their experiences and journey within DMP.”
The day will include sessions on resume and interview techniques for government positions, as well as one on one resume reviews and interview coaching.
