Woodside Energy has officially launched a local jobs portal for Karratha workers. The project is a collaboration with Western Australia’s Premier Mark McGowan and local Pilbara MLA Kevin Michel and Woodside.
Woodside’s projects at Pluto and the Karratha Gas Plant are set to provide major employment opportunities for locals, with the multi-billion-dollar Karratha Life Extension project and accommodation projects ready to support growth.
The job portal prioritises that Karratha locals reap the benefits of the Woodside projects. Large-scale projects such as these build on the significant amount of local infrastructure and are an opportunity to involve the local community.
“Our growth projects build on the significant amount of infrastructure we have locally – and we want people from Karratha to have every opportunity to work with us. This is about their future as much as ours,” said Woodside Chief Operations Officer, Meg O’Neill.
“Woodside is again entering a growth and construction phase on the Burrup Hub, with Scarborough to Pluto and Browse to the North-West Shelf on the horizon, both of which will support thousands of jobs as we invest billions of dollars in developing gas for domestic and export markets,” O’Neill said.
Woodside is also set to work closely with key contractors (such as United Cape Joint Venture and Monadelphous) to ensure that new job opportunities are added to the site as they become available. Collaboration with local employers and organisations will also be available through the portal.
