Diversity, Inclusion & Respect

Home » Careers » Diversity, Inclusion & Respect

We are committed to ensuring our corporate culture and values at all levels support diversity, inclusion and respect in the workplace, whilst maintaining a commitment to a high-performance culture.
We acknowledge the positive outcomes and better overall performance that can be achieved through a diverse workplace, and strive to improve diversity at all levels across our organisation.

We also recognise that in order to have an inclusive workplace, discrimination, bullying, harassment, vilification, victimisation and gossip cannot and will not be tolerated.

We have zero tolerance for disrespectful behaviors from anyone in our organization and everyone has a responsibility to behave appropriately at work. Our Choose Respect program outlines the expected behaviours of all employees at DDH1 Drilling.

I have been with DDH1 Drilling since April 2020. When I joined the company, I was completely new to the mining and drilling industry and I was a little nervous about whether I could do the job – not only because I was female but also being older!

When I first started it was a little challenging but once I learnt the techniques of doing tasks it became easier.

There is a huge wealth of knowledge within DDH1 Drilling. Many of the drillers and supervisors having been in the industry for 10+ years so the training I have received has been, and continues to be, outstanding.

Being away from family can be hard at times on both sides but my crew have become my family away from home. DDH1 Drilling also run various functions throughout the year not only for employees but partners and children too, which improves the work/life balance and is very much appreciated by myself and my family.
