The thing about working with INPEX

Meet Michael

"I started out my career as an Electrical apprentice after leaving school. My current position is Utilities Area Team Leader at Bladin Point.

I’ve been working for INPEX for nearly five years and I like the good learning culture. Here at INPEX we want to make the most of our personnel opportunities to develop and better ourselves and add value to our business.

Now at 51, I've just signed up to study my Masters in Leadership.

One of INPEX ‘s values is Diversity. An example of the company’s commitment to diversity is it’s mandatory for all personnel to attend Aboriginal awareness training. That means a lot to me and I enjoy a genuine sense of belonging here.

I can honestly say that when INPEX says it's going to do something it follows through and delivers. “I started in electrical trades and now I’m an Area Team Leader at Bladin Point! INPEX listened to me when I said I was keen to learn about LNG. They gave me the opportunities I was looking for."

Meet Rachele

"I saw an ad on the INPEX website in December 2017 for Vac Students and I thought, well that could be a good step in the door! Two years later I’m still here at INPEX working in a full-time graduate role as a Lab analyst.

I’m a qualified environmental scientist and essentially my role here is to test water. I work with the laboratory and environmental team to test chemical concentrations of water. I  work in the lab, but I also go out and conduct field sampling, for water going into Darwin Harbour for example, to ensure the protection of aquatic life. I also test drinking water, and prepare reports for regulators, such as the EPA and Department of Health.

INPEX has an excellent mentoring program that’s part of the Vac Student program but you can also have a mentor assigned to you as a Grad, which is what I'm doing. So, if I want to know more about something l’m working on I just ask my engineering mentor and pick their brains for advice!

I work with people from all around the world including the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, England, Greece and the Macedonia and everyone brings in their different personalities, stories and experiences, which help everyone gain a healthy sense of cultural awareness and respect.

I’ve still got a few months to go on my Grad program, but I’d like to think I’ll stay on with INPEX in the long-term and develop a solid science-based career."

Meet Kaya

Kaya works in Aviation Operations, co-ordinating and scheduling helicopters for our offshore workers.

“I work in INPEX headquarters in Perth and my job is to get our workers from Broome and onto the Ichthys LNG worksite 430 kilometres away in the Browse Basin. I also organise all worksite travel. I started out in Admin as a team assistant with the Logistics Department and had no idea about aviation in the oil and gas industry.

I’ve gone from Admin to Aviation in eight years! INPEX has certainly been supportive of my career progression.

Right now, I’m the only Aboriginal woman in Aviation. I'm very culturally connected and INPEX has always been encouraging for me to continue to be involved in my community.

My advice to anyone thinking of taking up a career with INPEX is to come in with an open mind, look for challenges and look forward to the challenges as well. People at INPEX, we’re all different - from different backgrounds, ages, cultures, – and that acceptance of diversity that INPEX has here, creates an environment of openness to be yourself and to know you can take your career wherever you want it to go.”

Meet Liam

"I was looking for an internship to follow up on my university skills with the view to a career in finance and so I joined INPEX’s vacation student program in December 2018, finishing in February 2019. It was a solid hands-on experience. I kept in touch with INPEX and a few months later I was offered a commercial role as part of the Solid Pathways program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

I work on permit management regarding exploration permits and retention leases, as well as economic models and everything in between.

One of the great things INPEX offers is the opportunity to broaden your business and industry knowledge through training courses.

I've completed a two-day course in negotiations training, and also LNG Fundamentals which has given me an understanding of the oil and gas industry. I now know how gas is extracted!

Recently I graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce, majoring in Finance and Banking, and I work in the role of Commercial Officer. I plan to apply for a full-time graduate position at the end of my Solid Pathways program, in August 2020.

I can honestly say that INPEX tries really hard to bring in young talent and then backs that up with incredible support to help you develop your skills through mentoring and training. Everyone is willing to help you out. The group that I work with always have something new to teach me.

Everyone here offers something different to the business. It’s a super friendly and incredibly diverse workplace and I would recommend having a talk to INPEX about a career here.”
