At Alium Works, we challenge traditional recruitment methods

In Australia, social procurement initiatives are rising at the federal, state, and local government levels.

Social procurement occurs when a company uses its purchasing power to provide social advantages, most notably the creation of jobs, for those who have been disadvantaged in the labour force. It also includes the stimulation of local industries, as well as the promotion of environmental sustainability.

With policies such as the Commonwealth Government’s Indigenous Procurement Policy and the Victorian Government’s Social Procurement Framework, social procurement has become a crucial component of the modern government agenda.

The Indigenous Procurement Policy’s major goal is to encourage Indigenous entrepreneurship, company growth, and economic development, giving Indigenous Australians more opportunities to participate in the economy.

The Victorian Government’s Social Procurement Framework, on the other hand, applies to all procurement activities in Victoria, including goods, services, and construction. It also builds on and supplements existing government efforts aimed at assisting Victorians in reaching their full potential. This includes Aboriginal businesses, social enterprises, individuals with disabilities, women, and the long-term unemployed, as well as initiatives that address climate change.

Alium Works recognises the need to challenge traditional recruiting practices by investing in the future of the rail and infrastructure industry through providing opportunities for those who are typically overlooked during the recruitment process.

Embracing diversity

At Alium Works, we constantly strive to achieve this through our unique attraction process. For example, we use Artificial Intelligence (AI) to assess true role suitability and avoid any of the usual bias that happens in traditional recruitment.

Rail Safety Officer

Offering a more accessible entry into the industry

Our award-winning programs are tailored to attract young people from a range of socio-economic backgrounds. The program opens doors for people who may not typically be considered for industry roles due to gender biases, disability, long-term unemployment, refugee or migrant status, or a lack of relevant experience or qualifications.

Enabling a diversified workforce

It’s not just young people who can benefit from our programs. Parents returning to work or those wanting a career change can also gain numerous advantages from our accredited courses, coaching and mentoring.

At Alium Works, we also understand the importance of supporting women in non-traditional roles through mentorship, workplace support, and educational programs. Professions and industries dominated by males, with women accounting for less than 25% of the workforce, are regarded as ‘non-traditional’ roles for women.

Women currently make up just 2% of qualified construction trade workers in Australia—a mere fraction of the 1.2 million strong workforce.

Bringing together different experiences and perspectives helps everyone achieve more

We believe everybody should have access to the knowledge and skills required to enter the rail and infrastructure industry. That’s why we provide a range of industry-relevant and targeted upskilling programs, including our Pathway Program, cadetships, on-the-job training, structured mentoring and more.
