Originated with the vision of creating pathways to empowerment for Aboriginal people in Australia, Eastern Guruma Pty Ltd is 100% owned by members of the traditional owner group, Eastern Guruma.
Initially contracting the civil and mining industries, this vision has echoed throughout our operations over the years. It has been this prophecy, and the determination of our team carrying it through, that has allowed us to expand tenfold.
54% of our current employees are Aboriginal people, both in management positions and throughout site operations. True to our roots, each project we undertake coincides with the purpose of providing multiple employment, career and business opportunities for Aboriginal people. Proudly undertaking a number of Joint Ventures with prestigious companies including Rio Tinto, Fortescue Metals and NRW – these projects have allowed us to create large employment opportunities for Aboriginals throughout Australia.
A lot of employees commence at EG unqualified as we provide the appropriate training and learning environments to attain the skills and qualifications to uphold a career. Our business model is centred around completely creating these employment opportunities and working models, in various industries. Once we have successfully trained and built a sustainable operation, we then leave behind this functioning business model, along with long-term careers and ultimately community enrichment.
Across all of our projects, we have introduced long term careers for Aboriginal people within the civil and mining, landscaping, facilities management, drilling, telecommunications and pastoral industries, and endeavour to continue to do so for years to come.
It is our drive to empower Aboriginal people in Australia that fuels our continual growth. We have mentored a number of Aboriginal Businesses, sharing our business model and providing ongoing support. Our success is measured by our ability to provide opportunities for Aboriginal people, thus we are ecstatic to have the opportunity to undertake joint ventures with respected companies supporting the same vision.
