REX Program runs again in Collinsville

The 2018 REX Program kicked off in Collinsville in June with students from James Cook University (JCU) commencing their work placements with Thiess at QCoal’s Northern Hub Operations.

The program is a whole of community career experience program offering placements across a range of discipline.  In addition to gaining real work experience with a local employer, REX participants are involved in a number of community activities during the program.

REX Participant Courtney Chetty said she found the work experience extremely beneficial and rewarding as she learned a lot about the environmental profession, and work at a mine site.

“I have sincerely enjoyed every aspect of the REX program and I found the Community Service at Scottville School went really well and people were very welcoming. Thanks again for the opportunity.”
