Bis partners with Zancott Recruitment to deliver Indigenous pre-employment training program

Leading provider of specialised production services to the resources sector Bis, recently partnered with Zancott Recruitment, a 100% Indigenous owned and operated recruitment company in Whyalla, to deliver an Indigenous Civil Construction pre-employment training program.

Driven by the South Australian’s Government Skilling South Australia Program, the programs goal was to encourage more Indigenous workers, particularly women, to participate in Civil Construction and Heavy Engineering sectors.

Five women and five men participated in the program, completing an eleven-week intensive training and work program. Upon completion, all ten participants received a Certificate II in Civil Construction and were also offered employment with Bis, commencing this month.

Commenting on the initiative, Bis General Manager Hadyn Shepherd said “at Bis we believe a diverse workforce is a strong workforce, and we foster an inclusive culture which embraces difference. We are proud to be involved in this important pre-employment program, and look forward to welcoming the ten new employees to our team here in Whyalla to help deliver strong outcomes for our customer.”

Zancott Recruitment’s National Manager David Couzner said “this is an outstanding outcome for the program, participants, Bis, the South Australian Government and Zancott Recruitment. The participants have been rewarded with employment due to their dedication and commitment to the program’s values and requirements. They should be proud of their achievements and are viewed as strong community role models.”

This year Bis celebrates operating in Whyalla for sixty years, providing haulage, crushing and screening, product management and train loading to the Whyalla steelworks.
