Adani continues search for workers for Carmichael project in QLD


Posted by Monica Gameng

Jobs creation for Adani’s Carmichael coal mine, rail and port projects is well underway, with Downer Group – the project’s major mine contractor – touring around regional Queensland to meet with jobseekers.

Over the next few weeks, Downer will be present at a number of employment fairs. Adani is hoping that these roadshows will help create a positive outlook for the region moving forward into the next year.

“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 Australia Chief Executive Jeyakumar Janakaraj said.

Earlier this year, Adani announced that the company will be focusing on local employment for the $21.7 billion Carmichael project.

There are currently five jobseeker events, with more to be announced in the coming weeks. Downer’s recruitment efforts will be focused on Rockhampton and Townsville, which are Adani’s current FIFO hubs for the Carmichael project.

The first event in the calendar is the Gear Up Rocky Job Readiness Expo in Rockhampton (29 November), followed by a series of community engagement roadshows in Woorabinda (30 November), Cherbourg (4 December), Townsville (12 December) and Palm Island (13 December).

For more information on these jobseeking events, you can visit Adani Australia or Downer’s websites.
