We encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people looking to start or continue their career in mining to Think Big with BHP. At BHP we support our people to grow, learn, develop their skills and reach their potential. Indigenous Peoples are critical partners and stakeholders in many of BHP operations both within Australia and around the world. Many of our operations are located on or near lands traditionally owned by or under the customary use of Indigenous Peoples and the long-term nature of our operations allows us to establish long lasting relationships with these Indigenous communities.
