Monadelphous is an Australian company that provides multidisciplinary engineering construction, maintenance, and industrial services to the resources, energy, and infrastructure sectors.

The company started in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia, in 1972 and over its more than 50 years in operation has expanded its services to 26 locations in Australia and works across five countries globally.

Monadelphous recently secured a variation to its existing maintenance contract with INPEX, having worked across the construction of the onshore facilities since 2013, and now holds long-term onshore and offshore maintenance contracts with the company.

Monadelphous has been operating in the Northern Territory since 1993, opening a Darwin workshop in 1994, which was upgraded in 2019 to support multiple contracts in the region.


Monadelphous values leadership and skills growth and has developed several initiatives to foster these qualities, including extensive Safety Leadership programs, along with Emerging Leaders, Leading@ Monadelphous and Group Mentoring in-house development programs.

The company also offers extensive graduate, vacation, apprenticeship and traineeship programs to attract new talent with 200 people taking part in the program last year alone.

Monadelphous places great importance on supporting and providing quality training to their apprentices, which is critical to the company’s growth in the Territory.

Building a strong workplace culture

Monadelphous is committed to long-term sustainable growth through effective management of its economic, environmental, and social impacts.

The company actively engages the community in the Territory, supports and trains its local workforce, and responds to community interests, ensuring it is regarded as a place of integrity and pride by its workers. The company encourages a safe workplace culture through its Respect@Monadelphous framework and actively strives to attract a workforce of people from all backgrounds, skill levels, and cultures through its Gender Diversity and Inclusion Plan.

Monadelphous is committed to accelerating its decarbonisation efforts, minimising the environmental impact of its projects, and achieving its goal of net-zero emissions by 2050.

It has formed working groups focused on renewable energy, with a particular focus on fleet and operational activities, to aid its transition.

Monadelphous also developed a Local Community Engagement Plan for key regional locations and launched a second Stretch Reconciliation Action Plan last year, respecting the importance of meaningful engagement and relationship building in regional First Nation communities.

With a strong emphasis on sustainability, training locals, and building a safe and respectful workplace, Monadelphous continues to strengthen its position working with the community in the Northern Territory.



Instrument Electrician Apprentice

Apprentice Xavier was also inspired by a family member being involved in the INPEXoperated Ichthys LNG energy development.

“One of my family members worked for INPEX and they recommended the Monadelphous training program to me. As soon as I saw an ad on Seek, I applied.”

The Darwin location provides Xavier with the opportunity to live close to his family and friends he grew up with, as he trains and works at the Ichthys LNG facility. “This industry provides endless opportunities.”



Apprenticeship in Mechanical Fitting

Mechanical fitter apprentice Hailee has transitioned to Monadelphous and now supports Ichthys LNG.

“Moving into higher education after high school was not the pathway I wanted to go down. I enjoy learning on the job and by doing an apprenticeship, I got to earn a living while gaining a qualification.”

When asked what she likes the best about working in the energy sector, Hailee cited the exposure to new and interesting experiences.

“I really enjoy working in the energy industry and the career opportunities it can offer.



Apprenticeship in Instrument Electrical

Recent graduate Britta is recognised for her leadership as a mentor and as an advocate for women in the workplace – “where the training opportunities are plentiful.”

“Hands-on learning has always interested me and working for Monadelphous to support INPEX was completely different to anything I’d ever done before.”

Britta credits her father’s involvement in the resources sector for inspiring her to investigate an apprenticeship.

“I saw how far my dad’s career in the resources industry went, so once I heard about career opportunities at school, I knew I wanted to give it a go.”

When asked about the best thing in being part of Darwin’s energy and resources industry, Britta’s enthusiasm was palpable.

“This industry opens career pathways, especially during my time working at the Ichthys site. I also love living in Darwin where I can socialise, go to music festivals and swim.”
