Engaging the DDR employees of tomorrow

A number of DDR employees recently contributed to Worley’s work experience program and found it to be both positive and rewarding.

Recently, DDR was lucky enough to contribute to Worley’s work experience program. Worley is a global company that provides engineering solutions within the energy, chemicals and resources sectors. Like DDR, Worley is dedicated to providing young people with training and employment opportunities.

The DDR team welcomed the students to its Perth office and a number of staff members shared their personal journeys, describing what their average work day looks like. A highlight was DDR employee Aaliya Kickett’s story.

Aaliya has been with DDR for three years and, during that time, has developed impressive leadership skills, especially considering her young age. As DDR Aboriginal Engagement and Mentoring Manager Peter Cox says, “If you see her, you can be her.”

The students also accompanied the DDR team to the HMAS Stirling defence base at Garden Island to take a look at current and previous projects. HSEQ Advisor Jenny Macris was particularly excited to see more young women on site.

DDR is grateful for having had the opportunity to host the students and
hopes to continue its participation in the future. As Peter says, “If we continue to collaborate in this way, we can achieve great things for community.”
