Adani has announced a series of regional Queensland employment roadshows where Downer Group representatives will meet with jobseekers.
Downer Group is the mining contractor for the Carmichael coal project.
“As our project continues to move forward, we are excited to bring regional Queensland workers on board to help us start building our mine, rail and port projects,” Adani chief executive officer and country head Jeyakumar Janakaraj said.
“Groups hoping to stop us have failed, because we have already started.”
So far, there are five confirmed jobseeker events on the calendar, with additional events to be announced in the coming weeks.
Rockhampton and Townsville are the focus for Downer’s mine recruitment efforts, following the recent mine FIFO Hub announcements.
First in line is the Gear Up Rocky Job Readiness Expo on Wednesday, November 29, followed by community engagement outreaches in Woorabinda (November 30), Cherbourg (December 4), Townsville (December 12) and Palm Island (December 13).
The Rockhampton event is open to all with no registration required, while jobseekers looking to attend the Townsville event will need to register with Downer Group.
