Gladstone LNG Jobs with Macmahon

Macmahon Holdings has been awarded the Gladstone LNG civil works sub contract in Queensland by Bechtel Australia.

The contract consists of site preparation for the plant on the south west side of Curtis Island, near Gladstone.

The work is worth over $150 million.

Macmahon CEO Nick Bowen said “this LNG project is an important development for Queensland and the Australian resources sector.”

The contractor`s work on the site will begin immediately and will finish in late 2012.

Macmahon carries out a number of mining contracts, and saw themselves nominated last year for their work at BHP Billiton`s Orebody 18 in the Australian Mining Prospect Awards.

Job applicants can improve their chances of working on this project by undertaking a GI Safety Induction.

The civil works involve various machinery tickets like Front End Loaders, Graders, Dozers and Excavators.

      Hi Tim
      Im sure with your experience that after doing a course and induction then you would have a good chance at getting a job in the mines. There are a few different courses you can do but the one that will give you the best result of an underground mining job would be the Work Ready Program. The course has a placement program at the end that will give you the best chance of getting an interview.
      You would be able to slip into a few different jobs with your experience like service crew, form worker or drillers offsider.
