WorkPac opens a new recruitment office in Perth as their work with Rio Tinto continues to grow

24/10/2018BY: Tracey Mesken

​Previously working from the Perth office, WorkPac’s Rio Tinto Project Services team have moved to their own space.

Australia’s largest privately-owned recruitment company WorkPac have opened their second office in Perth, the city where they opened their first business centre in 1997.

The second office is dedicated to WorkPac’s Rio Tinto Project Services team, who manage recruitment for Rio Tinto Iron Ore.

The Project Services team was created in 2017 as a dedicated team servicing Rio Tinto and have since shared an office space with the Perth Business Centre, but as both those teams have continued to expand the need for a new location became apparent.

Business Centre Manager for Project Services, Mr. Dennis Blewitt, said the move is telling of how far WorkPac has come since it was first founded.

“Perth is the city where WorkPac was founded, and now 21 years and over 40 business centres later, it’s a proud moment for everyone that we’re opening our second office here.”

“It’s also an especially proud moment for myself and my team, as a reflection of all the hard work we’ve put in over the past year.”

“This move is not only going to give us the space we need now, but room to continue to grow in the future.”

“Having our own space separate from the Perth office is also going to make it easier for candidates to find us for interviews and training”.

Mr Blewitt is looking forward to continuing working with both Rio Tinto and job seekers in WA.

“We’re very fortunate to have Rio as one of our major clients, and our partnership will continue to focus on finding great roles for great people with an Australian icon”.

“I look forward to continuing to provide them with the best service possible”.

The new office is in the same building as the Perth Office at 31 Ventnor Avenue in West Perth, with the Perth team being located on level 3 and the Project Services team on the ground floor.

Those looking for work with Rio Tinto in the region can get in touch with the team at riojobs@workpac.com or by calling 1300 498 559.
