The Gorgon project has been on the go for years with the potential for loads of work for skilled trades people and a worry that there would not be enough skilled people to fill the vacancies. At the end of 2012 the "Be a Part of Something Big" campaign was advertised on the net, on the radio and in the newspapers. I along with probably thousands of others decided to apply for a position on the project having the experience, residency requirements and qualifications to fill the vacancies.
I applied for the job online and filled in the required forms back in November 2012. I then completed 2 online tests, both of which I passed. After some weeks I was invited to go downtown Perth to a 'Roadshow' in the week before Christmas 2012 at which I was booked into a series of 3 days of welding tests, a medical and a one day induction at the AMC in Henderson.
I completed my weld tests (3 days of testing) and I was told that I was successful personally. I passed my medical as it was a month later that I attended the induction.
Looks good I thought!
No, I am unsuccessful at this stage they said.
In the months since they have advertised all around Australia for welders.
So what have you got to do to get on this job?
Anyone working for CKJV or Chandler Mecleod know?
