A Conversation with Corey:

We got the inside scoop on his journey with CADDS Group and his take on how the company has evolved.

How has your role evolved during your 15 years at CADDS Group, and what are some of the most significant projects you’ve been a part of during this time?’

”I owe basically all my knowledge around mining & design to my past and present mentors of CADDS. I am very thankful to have had some great leads and worked alongside some very knowledgeable colleagues and clients over my time here. I started at “Computer Aided Design and Drafting Services” now known as CADDS Group back in 2008 at the age of 16, Lucky enough to have been accepted by Darren for one of the 1st sponsored traineeships CADDS would undertake. As a designer in my 20s, amongst design work, I spent nearly a decade almost fulltime in the Pilbara scoping & quoting new design works, as well as completing design checks during site shut work, and providing installation client support for our designs and prototypes.

15yrs on, aside from having created 3D designs/drawings for almost all disciplines at some point, I have also had the opportunity to experience lengthy and enjoyable BHP & RTIO secondment roles, dabbled in multiple types of surveying works, and spent time in the fab workshop watching and prototyping our designs as they come to life.”

Can you share what has kept you committed to CADDS Group for 15 years, and how has the company’s culture contributed to your long-term dedication and development within the organization?

”For me this has been a very easy 15yrs, largely due to the continued opportunity for growth in such a dynamic workplace. Along with that, anyone that has worked at CADDS will know that we have always had a unique culture. There is an amazing buzz to working at CADDS as there is always something interesting happening be it project based, or as part of our social club. What started off as a small family owned business, has now grown into a 170+ employee multi discipline company with a strong foot hold with some of the biggest names of mining, Yet we have never lost that amazing culture of a fun, family based company. When we employ new team members, they join us not merely as just a number, but as valued colleagues who actively collaborate and contribute to a workplace that embraces a vibrant and enjoyable atmosphere. Here, colleagues transform into friends with good comradery, creating a lively, fun filled environment that goes beyond traditional work dynamics.”
