CPB Contractors Project Director Jill Boag, emphasised the importance of providing meaningful employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, saying the project is committed to cultivating an inclusive culture that embraces diversity and provides rewarding employment opportunities.

“Our partnership with Wamarra is just the first step on a journey to build greater trust with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, lower prejudice and help develop capability within the industry,” she said.

The CPB led project has increased employment opportunities for our team, with seven Wamarra employees working on the project. We’re proud to have also promoted Brad Lovett-Kairouz to a Leading Hand at the commencement of site establishment works.

We look forward to continuing our collaborative relationship and construction work with CPB Contractors and MRPV.
