NT Port and Marine is highly committed to giving back to the communities in which we operate. Our facilities and operations are designed to provide tangible economic value and long-term benefits for the Tiwi community, as the Traditional Owners.
Education and Employment
One of our key goals is to provide real and rewarding education and employment opportunities for Tiwi Islanders. This ensures Tiwi Islanders have an opportunity to forge careers on their land whilst enriching their communities for generations to come.
To this end, Port Melville works in close partnership with the Tiwi Community, through the Tiwi Land Council, Tiwi Islands Training and Employment Board (TITEB) and Tiwi College Training Facility to create strong pathways and support for Tiwi Islanders to enter into rewarding careers on their island home. This includes jobs directly associated with the Port through marine and contracting services, as well as increasing opportunities presented by the Woodchip Industry that the Port supports. There are also job opportunities created through the activities from the various support services associated with the Port.
