Meet our Onslow Trade Supervisor
From making his start at Monadelphous as a carpenter, to transitioning into a supervisory role, Trades Supervisor and Onslow local, Cori Moon, is one of our many upskilling success stories from across the Pilbara region.
After starting off with Monadelphous just over a year ago as a carpenter/leading hand working on Chevron Australia’s Wheatstone project, Cori’s hard work and enthusiasm was noticed by his supervisors, who promoted him to a trades supervisor role in December last year.
The new role is no easy task, with Cori looking after our carpenters, electricians, plumbers and general service operators on site – totalling around 15-20 people at any one time. Cori says despite the role transition being challenging, having come through the ranks gives him the opportunity to have a better understanding of the team he supervises.
“I wouldn’t say the transition has been without its challenges, but it’s definitely been a positive experience for me,” Cori said.
“I have a firsthand understanding of what our team is going through if they come to me with any issues, which I think helps me carry out my role more successfully. I’ve already got that relationship with my team who are on the tools and we have a great level of mutual respect.”
Having been a part of the small Onslow community for seven years, Cori says it’s the close-knit environment and locally-run activities run by the community that makes the town so special.
“I’ve always been a big fan of the small community. You get to know everybody around town really well,” he said. “There are social sports run here and there including badminton, football and bowls.
Plus, there’s all the fantastic work the V Swans do with the local school-aged kids as well.”
And as for the best part about living in Onslow, according to Cori?
“The world-class fishing of course!”
