Young Rail Professionals

Following the outstanding success of our Young Rail Professionals Forum in Sydney and Melbourne earlier this year, the ARA is again partnering with Aurecon to host a similar event in Perth on Thursday 26 October 2017 from 6-8.30pm.
This ‘Harnessing the workforce for the future’ Forum aims to recognise the value, importance and qualities of young professionals in the rail sector. Collectively, the rail sector must harness the right skills required for the future, to ensure the industry’s viability and relevance.
The Forum is for young professionals and their managers to gain wisdom from esteemed industry experts.
Panellists at the Perth Forum will include representatives from:

  • Public Transport Authority WA
  • BHP
  • Arc Infrastructure
  • Aurecon

Rail is entering an exciting period as a result of unprecedented investment and expansion. This transformation provides rail with the unique opportunity to embrace change and improve age diversity in the rail workforce, and we believe that everyone has a role to play in the journey. Young professionals and managers are encouraged to participate, network and gain wisdom from a diverse range of panelists.
The panel will focus on:

  • How best to harness the workforce for the future
  • Value of age and gender diversity in the workforce
  • Job and organisational aspects that attract young professionals
  • Value of new skills versus experience
  • Importance of future technologies and disruptive thinking
