Leeuwin Civil employs a multi-skilled workforce of some 60 personnel. This includes executive and project management staff, administrators, supervisors, operators, drivers, mechanics and labourers.
Our low attrition rates, with many of our staff remaining with us for five years or longer, can be attributed to a company culture that encourages personal development through the provision of project and role diversity.
We also place strong emphasis on providing our employees with opportunities to increase their skillsets through progressive training initiatives, particularly in the areas of PVC pipelaying, and plant operation for forklifts, diggers, truck drivers and more.
The last 10 years has also seen seven Heavy Diesel mechanics complete apprentices with Leeuwin Civil.
Leeuwin Civil also supports the State’s initiative to actively encourage greater participation by Aboriginal people wherever possible. This is particularly true for projects delivered in more remote areas, where local Aboriginal businesses are sought out as sub-contractors, and Aboriginal people employed and trained as labour resources.
Leeuwin Civil is also part of a current program, developed in conjunction with the City of Busselton and Rio Tinto, to host, mentor and support regionally-based Indigenous apprentices.
We also support local youth by hosting school-based trainees in the areas of mobile plant maintenance and administration.
