Indigenous Engagement

Pindari is committed to achieving and sustaining a minimum 30% Indigenous employment through its Indigenous Employment and Engagement Plan (IEEP), the proactive approach applied to HR and recruitment policies, as well as our partnerships with clients and suppliers. 

Pindari has employed and trained dozens of Indigenous Australians of all skill levels, including the successful completion of Apprenticeships in the Plumbing, Painting and Electrical trades. Pindari continues to train and mentor Indigenous Administrators, Trades, Trades Assistants, Leading Hands and Maintenance workers, while supporting smaller Indigenous businesses in expanding their capabilities and capacity to improve their business potential.

In addition to employment and training, Pindari continues to improve cultural awareness, team development, on boarding and family support, retention and long-term work placements for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.

Pindari has several formal alliances and Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs) with Indigenous organisations for the supply of labour, goods and services and continues to develop relationships with likeminded businesses and individuals that provide support, training and opportunities for Indigenous Australians.

Gobawarrah Mindurrah Yinhawangka (GMY)

In 2011 Pindari formed an MOU with the Gobawarrah Mindurrah Yinhawangka (GMY) group to support a flexible local work team that carries out non-critical work at West Angelas operations under the supervision of Pindari, while they develop skills and work practices to achieve independence, the supply of GMY labour to Pindari still continues today.

Kuruma Marthudunera Aboriginal Corporation (KMAC)

In 2018 Pindari signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Kuruma Marthudunera Aboriginal Corporation (KMAC). KMAC’s head office is in Karratha and the parties agreed to work together collaboratively to identify and pursue optimal ways in which employment and commercial opportunities can be explored and achieved.

New Opportunities

Through networking, recruitment drives and partnerships, including new work opportunities in the South West, Pindari is aiming to increase employment and training figures beyond the 30% benchmark by 2021 through our Apprenticeship Program, Traineeships and Tradies Trial Programs.
