Our organisation is nothing without our people – they are the very foundation of our organisation.
Our commitment to local economic growth sees TEi Services employ a current workforce of 40 locals. Our investment in our people is key to both their future in the industry and our success as a business. Our people are provided industry training in a range of industry courses, and key personnel who show a long-term commitment to our company’s success are provided with opportunities to undertake further, fully funded training in specialised areas, such as Asset Inspections, Condition Monitoring, Undergraduate Engineering or Business Management.
Our commitment to people has seen TEi Services employ and train in excess of 350 tradespersons through our apprentice intake program. A large number of our apprentices have gone on to hold key positions in mining and other engineering companies, both nationally and internationally. Several have started their own successful businesses, further adding to the strength of the local economy.
TEi Services recognise that the people for our future are a direct product of the education they receive. TEi Services actively engage with local High Schools, providing workplace work placement positions for trade students with an interest in a career in our industry. We also offer on-the-job training for those wishing to take up an administration related role in the business. But our commitment doesn’t stop there.
Through our business engagements, we understand that the best Professional Engineers and designers are those with practical, hands on experience. Our support of various undergraduate student clubs, in areas such as Electronics and Robotics, UAS Technologies and Motorsports allows students with passions in these fields to gain real-life experiences. Our key personnel engage directly with students with guest lecture presentations, vocational placements, and as industry partners in several grant funded research. We embrace training to support safety, productivity, and school leavers to find jobs. Each year school leavers are recruited to join the company as engineering apprentices.
In this field some will become boilermakers, others fitters or machinists. Engineering cadetships in the form of Associate Diploma in Engineering (Civil) and Degree Courses are offered and sponsored as and when the opportunities arise. In any year the total number of trainees could number 18 to 20.
Engineering apprentices training follows defined courses with modules agreed with the service provider. Additionally to engineering training we embrace 'Ticketed' courses for first aid, riggers, dogman, crane drivers, welders and other skills, many conducted in our facility or by a local training provider.
To provide safety and compliance, inductions for the workshop and site-specific inductions are carried out for new employees. Training records are maintained as part of the employees personal file.
