The Indigenous Engagement Strategy for Main on Construction and Maintenance Pty Ltd (MCM) is a part of MCM’s commitment to improving the quality of life, equality of opportunity and the fulfilment of the diverse aspirations of Indigenous Australians. The policy and strategy promotes and encourages employment for Indigenous Australians with MCM. MCM seeks to engage with external organisations (community, businesses, industries, and government), starting with the Greater Sydney region to foster alliances and partnerships, and to develop programs that improve Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander employment opportunities.
In the beginning of 2020, MCM actively started looking for suppliers and contractors that are either registered with Supply Nation or is owned by Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander by at least 51%. Today, MCM actively works with such contractors providing a multitude of services. Some of these services are:
- Traffic Controllers.
- Access Hire Equipment.
- Labour Hire.
- Professional Services.
With the launch of this policy, we anticipate that our spending with Indigenous-owned businesses will only accelerate in the coming years.
