PTM Group recognises and respects Indigenous Australians as the Traditional Owners of these lands. We support Indigenous education, research and cultural awareness. In the spirit of reconciliation, we acknowledge and pay respects to Larrakia Elders – both past, present and emerging – of all of the lands on which PTM Group operates its business. We acknowledge their living culture and unique role in the life of these regions and offer our deep appreciation for their contribution and support.
We are committed to the Northern Territory, and pay respect to its Indigenous heritage, history and population. We recognise that the future of the industry will rely on developing potential candidates from within our Indigenous community to establish a stable and dedicated workforce. Providing equitable opportunities for Indigenous Territorians to participate in economic growth and targeted employment and training strategies are key objectives. Our vision is to create social and commercial outcomes by employing Indigenous people in a profitable, reputable and versatile business.
Through our partnership with ie.project we are contributing to the ongoing employment and training of a localised Indigenous workforce. This is achieved through additional training (on and off the job) and workforce development guidance.
PTM Group can guarantee its capability to maximise Indigenous employment as it directly aligns with our core values and functions of the company. PTM Group’s Directors, management and staff are passionate about empowering Indigenous people to be able to find suitable, meaningful work whilst contributing to the local economy.
Our approach to Indigenous workforce development will assist to overcome disadvantage through participation in the economic growth of the Northern Territory. We recognise that employment and the flow on effects this can provide to the individual and their significant others is critical in overcoming welfare dependency.
