Late last year, when South32 met the first cohort of students through their partnership with MADALAH, amongst them was Flynn Bailey, a talented student studying Civil Engineering, Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Western Australia (UWA).
Fast forward a few months, and not only has Flynn recently completed their vacation program, he’s also just become an employee.
South32 partner with MADALAH and the partnership aligns closely with their Reconciliation Action Plan commitment to deliver education, training and career pathway opportunities for Indigenous peoples, with scholarships covering tuition and expenses for students from communities near thier Worsley Alumina operation and Perth office.
Flynn, a MADALAH scholarship recipient, was quick to jump at the offer of vacation work with them, spending time at both Worsley Alumina and with the Major Projects team in Perth during his recent summer break, enjoying it so much he accepted an offer to work with them.
Flynn started in a part-time role as a coordinator with the Major Projects team this month, while he completes his studies at UWA.
Flynn said he was thrilled at the opportunity.
