Established in 1934, Thiess is a leading construction, mining and services company with operations across Australia, Indonesia, India  and New Zealand.

While Thiess plays a pivotal role in building vital infrastructure and providing essential services for  communities, its vision ‘Creating a brighter future, together’, reaches beyond project delivery.

In November 2013, Thiess won the Australian Apprenticeships - Employer Award at the Australian  Training Awards for exceeding industry standards for its on and off-the-job training methods.

“Winning the Australian Apprenticeships – Employer Award is recognition of the hard work and effort that many people in the country have done in investing in our people in the last 50 years,” Thiess’ General Manager – People and Capability, Mark Vining said.

“Training is part of our DNA, it is the way we do business.

“We have probably trained tens of thousands of people and we don’t do it because we have to, we do it because we believe in it – it is an investment.

“Those people who start in apprenticeships and traineeships grow to be managers, supervisors and  leaders of the business,” Mark said.

Thiess’ Apprenticeship Program plays a key part in the company’s success and ensures the provision  of quality career paths for its employees. Founded in its Queensland division, the Thiess Apprenticeship Program has been striving for excellence and innovation for more than eight years  and during this time, it has delivered training and employment to more than 250 Australian Apprentices across a variety of disciplines including diesel fitters, automotive electricians, boilermakers, welders and high voltage electricians.
