Hear stories from our program participants:
Chris is a graduate Engineer at PYBAR, based at the Lady Loretta Mine in QLD. His major role is to complete daily reports on Lady Loretta’s development and operations.
Chris has developed his knowledge and experience throughout his time at PYBAR, starting out in the Sydney and Orange offices then getting the opportunity to work underground at Lady Loretta.
“The most exciting aspect for me has been learning to operate heavy machinery. At Lady Loretta I have been training on several types of equipment. I have had the opportunity to operate the machinery on a regular basis which has boosted my experience and skills”.
The most challenging experience Chris has faced during his time PYBAR was when he was posted to Orange to help complete tenders within the Civil division. Chris experienced the process and high-pressure workload first hand, enjoying the challenge and practical experience of working with a team.
“My overall experience with PYBAR has been fantastic, the variety has been more then I could have imagined. I have had the opportunity to work in Sydney, Orange and also on site at Lady Loretta. I am very grateful for the opportunity”.
Preston is the newest Engineer Graduate in our program, with four weeks of experience. He works in the Technical Services department in Sydney. Having already experienced collating cost information and making schedules for various aspects of a budget for a potential client, his current project is completing the budget estimate.
“I have been treated like a rock star!! I work with senior engineers who are both professional and ethical in their approach. I really appreciate their support and look forward to gaining the necessary experience to become a Mining Engineer”.
Preston has truly hit the ground running, already being challenged in his first four weeks, learning how to use Tender Estimation software and is about to attend Introductory training in thr Expert Estimator product.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to become part of such a forward thinking organisation. I know I made the right decision to join PYBAR because it’s exactly what I was looking for in an organisation!!”
PYBAR graduate program participant Ray Zhang is based in the Sydney office, having recently commenced his program.
‘I enjoy working with the people at PYBAR who are very experienced and talented, friendly and patient to train me as I become a professional Engineer’
One of Ray’s major responsibilities is building reports on WEB-BAR – a web-based data program which collects all the key information from sites and he also provides assistance to the tender process as part his learning process.
‘In the PYBAR graduate program I learn many things that other companies would not offer, such as tendering and estimating – something I value.’
Ray is also looking forward to the more practical part of the program as he heads out to one of PYBAR’s project sites across Australia.
