Graduate Mine Engineer, Perth, WAC
Janice Pandian is currently looking forward to continuing her efforts in operations after completing a six month rotation in operating our haul trucks.
Janice is an aspiring project manager in the making who knows that it takes a strong understanding of risk management processes and self management skills to reach her goal of managing one of Macmahon’s projects in the future.
Janice’s performance in Year 12 gave her an indication of her strengths, and she chose to study Chemical Engineering and Metallurgy to ensure she was in a strong position to enter the resources industry, in particular Macmahon. By thoroughly researching companies she was considering, Janice was impressed by Macmahon’s recent financial performance and substantial order book in existing contracts which gave her confidence in the company’s future outlook.
Having set her sights on Macmahon, Janice considered the company’s graduate development program and learned that over the course of three year’s she would be well positioned to gain experience across the company’s wide range of operations and business improvement initiatives.
After working with Macmahon’s drill and blast engineers, Janice has transitioned from load and haul to drill and blast and will be serving as part of the blast crew to supplement her engineering career and help her obtain her Quarry Manager’s ticket.
“Macmahon focusses on retaining their graduates and this has been demonstrated in the training opportunities I have been afforded thus far. There are countless opportunities for me to add value and improve how I contribute to the business”, said Janice.
Through the structured professional skills and project management training we undertake as part of the program, I have been able to access tools that shape my daily workflow and work through the different stages of a project effectively.
Janice’s business acumen, passion for the industry, and drive to succeed has put her in a really strong position to succeed at Macmahon.
