About Sedgman

About us

Known for innovation and excellence in our field, Sedgman, a member of CIMIC Group, has been delivering mineral processing solutions for almost 40 years. We are a full project life-cycle delivery company incorporating the development, project execution and ongoing operations phases of each project.

Our mission is to generate sustainable returns for our shareholders by delivering projects for our clients while providing safe, rewarding and fulfilling careers for our people.

Our workplace

We at Sedgman see diversity and inclusion as a foundation of our business and believe that our success is driven by our people. We understand that it takes a broad range of experienced and diverse people to deliver our projects and we are always looking for talented and motivated individuals to join our team.

We want our people to work in an environment where they feel welcome, supported, respected and heard, regardless of their background, age, gender or ethnicity; and where all employees can reach their full potential and achieve their personal and professional goals.

Inclusive culture

To help foster the unique skills and talents of our diverse people and a culture which is inclusive, without exception, we have the following in place:

  • A clearly stated Mission and Principles.
  • A Code of Conduct that sets out the standards and behaviours that we expect from our people.
  • Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) and unconscious bias training to support a level playing field.
  • A Diversity and Inclusion forum involving employee and management representatives who meet regularly to develop and execute our diversity and inclusion strategy and initiatives.

Gender equity

We have a series of initiatives to promote and increase employment opportunities for women at all levels of our business so that we progress towards gender balance; some of these include:

  • Undergraduate work placements and a graduate program promoting women in engineering 
  • Access to leadership programs
  • Networks for women, including the recent launch of WINTR – a LinkedIn networking group for women in non-traditional roles and industries, and those who support them, to share experience and encourage one another in their career development.

Recent achievements

As a member of CIMIC Group we are part of a global company that values diversity of thought, experience and skills and is cultivating an inclusive workplace:
