OUR
PEOPLE.

At Marawar, we’re as dedicated to exceeding our clients’ expectations as we are to creating economic opportunities and improving health and social outcomes for Aboriginal communities.

We’ve embedded our commitments in our quality management systems, business strategy and culture. And you can see them everywhere. In our work. In our team. At all levels across our business.

OUR BOARD.

Marawar was co-founded by businessman and Nyoongar Traditional Landowner Gerard Matera and renowned property group M/Group, who bring with them over 20 years of industry experience. This partnership is at the heart of our cultural DNA. And it’s the reason you’ll find a wealth of Aboriginal, business and industry knowledge on our experienced board.

OUR EMPLOYEES.

We’re diverse in every sense. With a growing number of Aboriginal employees, our team is truly multicultural. And as you can tell from our capabilities, our workforce is multidisciplinary, spanning and integrating myriad skillsets – skills that we regularly evaluate and nurture through ongoing training.

IN 2018 JUST 25% OF OUR WORKFORCE WAS OF ABORIGINAL HERITAGE. THIS GREW TO 40% IN 2019, 55% IN 2020 AND IN 2021…

OUR APPRENTICES.

We believe we have an obligation to develop the next generation of Australian construction professionals and tradespeople, so our apprenticeship program is a key focus for us. It’s also fundamental to our mission to bring more Aboriginal people into our business and industry. And the more we’re able to pair Aboriginal apprentices with Aboriginal tradies, the greater our impact.

OUR CONTRACTOR NETWORK.

As we expand our project portfolio across Western Australia, we expand our extended family of trusted, accredited contractors and sub-contractors – local professionals, tradies and businesses who share our passion for quality, consistent service delivery and most importantly equality.

Careers
and Community

Just as we work closely with our clients to achieve the best outcomes for their construction and building maintenance projects, we also work with them – and other like-minded organisations – to open up exciting new opportunities for Aboriginal people, communities and businesses.

Most obviously, our business collaborations create more Aboriginal apprenticeship opportunities and recruit, train and retain new Aboriginal employees.

But we also partner with an array of Indigenous recruiters, businesses and organisations - including Supply Nation and the Wirrpanda Foundation amongst others – to develop new employee interest, vocational, training and apprenticeship programs across Western Australia.
