Indigenous Partnering

One Key Resources takes a unique and committed approach to Indigenous employment, training and contracting projects.  We acknowledge the traditional owners of the lands on which we work and recognise that by partnering with Indigenous businesses, communities and organisations we can achieve more by combining our mutual strengths.

At One Key Resources we are focussed on delivering project outcomes that are commercially viable, that are measured and tracked and become a key component of project delivery.  To do this we rely on education, mentoring prior to and on the job and firm partnerships and commitments from the Indigenous people with whom we work.

We have strong skills and experience in:

  • Indigenous Employment
  • Indigenous Trainee programs
  • Sub-Contracting Projects including mining services and civil construction

One People – An Indigenous Employment and Training Partnership with FOGS

One People is an Indigenous employment and training program run by One Key Resources aimed at providing career opportunities for Indigenous students in the mining, gas, construction and resource sectors.

One Key Resources has partnered with Former Origin Greats Queensland (FOGS) who run the ARTIE program (Achieving Results Through Indigenous Education)at schools throughout QLD. “ARTIE” provides Indigenous students attending selected Queensland secondary schools the opportunity to participate in a program that encourages and rewards improvements in school attendance, behaviour, academic achievement and effort. For current students of the ARTIE program, One Key Resources will assist FOGS in mentoring students with visits to both schools and organising field trips to mining and gas projects. That mentoring of a larger number of students each year will see a big group of graduates ready for work placement with One Key Resources each and every year.

The strength of the “One People” program is the continuing mentoring offered to students to set goals and achieve just as they did in school with the assistance of FOGS. We will continue to work with FOGS as well as our own Rugby League legends such as Darren Lockyer to provide not only guidance to the students but also support to our client’s on how this can be a mutually beneficial long term program.  This offers an unrivalled level of commitment to ensure retention and performance of Indigenous staff on your projects.

In summary, “One People” focusses on the following outcomes::

  • Assisting FOGS in mentoring Indigenous students in school who are looking for a career in mining, construction or gas.
  • Educating and training year 12 students on entering the mining and resources industry.
  • Employing, training and mentoring graduate students on mining, gas and construction projects throughout QLD.
