Career opportunities on offer

December 6, 2023 BY

Todd Reid has been with OneFortyOne since 2019 and shares what he loves about working in the timber industry in the newly released careers booklet.

OneFortyOne has a brand-new resource available to showcase what it is like to be an apprentice, student, or graduate at the business.

Green Triangle Forests general manager Deon Kriek said the OneFortyOne Careers Program Booklet shares the stories of previous apprenticeship, scholarship and graduate program participants and provides insight into the benefits they can provide to someone starting their career.

“OneFortyOne is passionate about creating a diverse work force, and we need more young people to make this happen,” Mr Kriek said. “Our Career Programs are a great opportunity for young people to enter the industry and receive support as they develop their career.

“By bringing younger people into the business, OneFortyOne benefits from fresh perspectives. The booklet is one way that we can encourage young people to enter and remain in the industry.

“In addition to showcasing the experiences of some of our younger people, this publication also provides introductory information about working at OneFortyOne and our careers programs.”

OneFortyOne offers apprenticeships, scholarship and graduate programs as well as summer work in both Australia and New Zealand.

OneFortyOne is a forestry and sawmill business that manages more than 160,000 hectares (ha) of land including pine plantation and conservation areas, planting more than six million seedlings every year, renewably replacing the trees that we harvest.

The timber processed at the OneFortyOne Jubilee and Kaituna sawmills is turned into products that help people build and renovate their homes, construct fences on their farms, and support the landscaping in their gardens.

OneFortyOne is a significant regional employer, employing more than 500 people directly and more than 3000 indirectly as contractors.
