WA Mining Club Scholarship Application – Indigenous Upskilling Scholarship

Co Sponsored by KingKira

 

KingKira Group Pty Ltd (KingKira) is a 100% Female Aboriginal owned business providing a range of safe innovative services and solutions across the mining and resources sectors in Western Australia.
KingKira is wholly owned and operated by Tammy O’Connor, a traditional owner from the Pilbara region with a strong antecedent connection to her country through her Nyiyaparli and Palyku Aboriginal heritage, and links to Kariyarra and Ngarluma via her grandmother’s side.

Established in early 2014, KingKira has experienced organic growth through a simple strategic vision; “to provide development opportunities for Aboriginal people, and in parallel manage all aspects of the land in which the business operates to maintain a sustainable future”.
