Partnering with The Smith Family for Work Inspiration

Gone are the days of photocopying or stuffing envelopes while on work experience! Otraco, along with the rest of Downer Mining Services including DBS, ReGen and Underground and Exploration Drilling, partnered with The Smith Family to develop a Work Inspiration program for students to broaden their perspectives and develop their aspirations.

At the launch of our three-day pilot program in March 2014, we invited 20 Year Nine students from four Brisbane high schools to our Head Office to learn all about career pathways into the mining industry.

With three career engagement activities or ‘insights’, the program enables students to experience the world of work first hand by learning about themselves, the mining industry and the career journeys of our employees.

Watch the short video below to find out more about the program and its many benefits.
