Jody Elliott is one of those rare people with a wealth of knowledge about the resources sector, and the ability to communicate that knowledge in an assessable, engaging way. She’s a consummate professional with an outgoing, friendly demeanour – and that particularly comes across when she’s presenting.

In 2012, Mining Family Matters collaborated with Jody on The Resource Channel’s FIFO hub pilot program in Mount Gambier, SA. The award-winning pilot program aimed to source skilled labour from non-mining regional areas, and it was really inspiring to watch Jody bringing together all levels of government and the community. We were delighted to be involved in such a ground-breaking program that not only sought to offer new opportunities to Australian families, but was also upfront about the emotional challenges of fly-in, fly-out employment.”

I first worked with Jody Elliott at Santos in her role as Manager HR Services. Subsequently, in her consulting capacity, I have engaged her to undertake a number of assignments. Jody’s expertise is in job market research, sourcing trends and innovations, candidate engagement and her detailed knowledge of the Australian resource sector. Jody has completed assignments ranging from market research to team presentations, workshops and planning.
