Matt Colvin  Apprentice Boilermaker

If you ask about working for a mining company with great people, not too many wouldn’t have come across Macmahon and agree with that endorsement. I’m in it for the long haul and chose to start somewhere with a solid reputation.

Jack Featherstone – Apprentice HD Fitter

Macmahon’s WAC workshop has great facilities and I get to work on a wider range of equipment than I might elsewhere. The workshop team has been with the company for a long time and are more than willing to share experience and knowledge.

Tim Jones – Apprentice Auto Electrican

I was interested in an apprenticeship with Macmahon after reviewing my options between a university degree or learning a trade, deciding that I would prefer a career working with my hands in a workshop rather than sitting in an office at a desk.
