In the Autumn 2019 edition of the industry publication Resource People, produced by the Australian Resources & Energy Group (AMMA), Johnathan Thurston reflected on the partnership between Queensland Field Mining Services (QFMS) and the JTAcademy.

“In many remote and rural areas, the mining sector forms the backbone of the local economy,” he said. “Any chance we have to partner with organisations working in this space who also want to see young people trained and employed, we are happy to talk with.”

Jason Holt, COO at CFMS added: “When we received the call to say we were accepted to work with the JTAcademy we were over the moon as there was some very large companies involved and we could see the opportunities it could open up and help to drive diversity in our workplace.”

QFMS has been a supporter of the JTAcademy since it was launched in March 2018.
