Yes, our work/project requires you to get yourself to the work location/accommodation. We provide transport from accommodation to the site.
Depending on the project, you may require the following:
You are required to supply your own basic hand tools unless otherwise instructed. You will be issued with a specific list at the time of appointment. You will also be issued with a hard hat and red lockout/isolation padlock. You required to keep and effectively maintain both items and use them on subsequent projects.
If you are working on-site or in the Mackay workshop, you will be provided with high-viz shirts and trousers. If you are working in the office, you may elect to wear the corporate uniform (trousers, shirt, dress, blouse, skirt).
If the work/project is not local, you will be provided with single accommodation in a nearby camp. You will have your own room, with ensuite bathroom, access to the dining room and other common areas, and most sites have a gym.
Rosters are usually set by our clients who typically have fatigue management plans in place. A shift is typically a 12-hour day. Rosters can be different configurations, depending on the site, i.e 5 on 2 off/ 4 on 3 off etc.
You will be required to undergo drug and alcohol testing prior to completing the site-specific induction. There will also be random testing. Depending on the project site, you may be required to take a breath test each morning.
You cannot work on a mine site in Queensland without having satisfactorily passed a Queensland Coal Board Medical.
If you are working in the G&S Workshop or on a non-coal mine site, you will be required to undergo a pre-employment medical assessment.
If you have been an employee within the past 6 months, it is a reasonably easy process to reactivate you. If it is longer than 6 months since you worked for G&S, you will need to provide copies of your tickets and an updated application form.
This depends on the position you are applying for and will be made clear to you at the time of application.
On-site, you are required to wear the site uniform, typically high-viz shirt and trousers, steel cap boots and required personal protective equipment. In our office, we dress in smart casual business attire.
