Flying into job opportunities

May 31, 2018

Today on the program we talk to Kimberley Baird from Djarindjin Airport on the Dampier Peninsula, which is 170km north of Broome in WA. The airport has become one of a kind in Australia as it is fully staffed and managed by local indigenous workers. For the tiny community, the airport offers jobs and, maybe even more importantly, the chance to address drug and alcohol challenges. Kimberley has brought in a range of support services to help his team deal with drugs and alcohol, and he’s coupled it with a very strict zero tolerance policy.
