Meet the team: Georgia Horwood

Trainee HSEQ Officer Georgia Horwood has been blitzing it since she began with DDR in January 2022.

Georgia Horwood is an “NT girl”, as she puts it. She was born in Tennant Creek, on Warumungu Country, however, both sides of her family hail from Ngarrindjeri land, near Adelaide in South Australia. Georgia went to primary school in “Tennant” before moving to Adelaide to attend boarding school for years 11 and 12.

Georgia’s first job was in finance admin in Tennant Creek but she soon got itchy feet and made the move to Darwin.

“I like the party life and there are no parties in Tennant,” she says, laughing.

She saw a project administrator role at DDR advertised on SEEK and decided to give it a go. Georgia got the job and, since then, has honed her skill set, gained a heap of knowledge and advanced her career.

In terms of projects, Georgia is working on a pretty important one – the $110 million aviation fuel farm at RAAF Base Tindal in Katherine. While it is actually a Duratec job, Georgia was seconded to the project given that DDR is a Duratec-Dundee Rock joint venture.

Georgia learns something new every day and has now moved into the HSEQ space. As a trainee HSEQ officer, she is developing important skills that will hold her in good stead for the future.

While Georgia is based in Darwin, she works a three-and-one roster – that is, three weeks in Katherine, one week off back in Darwin (about a three-hour drive away). While in Katherine, she stays at the workers’ camp, which she really enjoys.

“It’s great! There’s a gym, a dining hall… it has everything you need all in the one spot – you hardly ever have to go into town,” she says.

Georgia is about to clock her two-year anniversary at DDR and is not planning on going anywhere. She’s eager to keep learning and has found her workmates to be both helpful and supportive.

“Everyone’s been amazing,” she says.

DDR is grateful to have Georgia on board.
