A day in the life of an Ertech Graduate Engineer

Projects take a lot more than planning and processes to deliver results. Projects are about PEOPLE that combine their skills and experience to create and make things happen.

Our crews work together day after day, and in many cases even live together in regional areas away from family and friends.

Today we want to share a day in the life of one of our Graduate Engineers.

Vanessa joined Ertech in early 2022 as a Graduate Civil Engineer. Her first project in Kalgoorlie is a far cry from life in Brazil but there is one thing for sure, Ness and her chilli plant have slotted into the team like everyone’s favourite cousin.

Vanessa is certainly making the most of her experience in the City of Gold and has shared her experience with us.

4:50 am – Workout

I begin each day with exercise using makeshift “gym” equipment that I have collected from the site, such as bricks, concrete fence feet, sand to make weights and more. Then I stretch and meditate for a few minutes before having breakfast. For breakfast, I either have a smoothie or yoghurt and granola. Sometimes on fly-out days, I wake up earlier and treat myself to a full-cooked breakfast.
