Famous in Western Australia and Queensland, ESS (a division of Compass Group) might just be the best employer you’ve never heard of!  ESS manages all aspects of large-scale accommodation facilities, or “villages” for remote workers, providing the essential comforts from a hot meal, a clean bed, freshly laundered workwear, to health and wellness facilities for those working away from home.

Roxby Downs is a mining town in outback South Australia and is often referred to as the most ‘modern town of the outback’!  About 15km north is the mine site of Olympic Dam.  Olympic Dam is one of the world’s most significant deposits of copper, gold, silver and uranium.  BHP operate underground and surface operations including a fully integrated processing facility from ore to metal.
