OneFortyOne Releases Careers Program Booklet

27 Nov 23


OneFortyOne has a brand-new resource available to showcase what it is like to be an apprentice, student, or graduate at the business. The OneFortyOne Careers Program Booklet shares the stories of previous Apprenticeship, Scholarship, and Graduate Program participants and provides insight into the benefits that OneFortyOne can provide to someone starting their career.

“OneFortyOne is passionate about creating a diverse work force, and we need more young people to make this happen,” said Deon Kriek, Green Triangle Forests General Manager. “Our Career Programs are a great opportunity for young people to enter the industry and receive support as they develop their career.”

“By bringing younger people into the business, OneFortyOne benefits from fresh perspectives. The booklet is one way that we can encourage young people to enter and remain in the industry.”

In addition to showcasing the experiences of some of our younger people, this publication also provides introductory information about working at OneFortyOne and our careers programs.

OneFortyOne offers Apprenticeships, Scholarship and Graduate Programs as well as summer work in both Australia and New Zealand.

About OneFortyOne

OneFortyOne is a forestry and sawmill business. We operate throughout the Green Triangle region of Australia and the Nelson, Tasman, and Marlborough regions of New Zealand (Top of the South).

We manage over 160,000 hectares (ha) of land including pine plantation and conservation areas. We plant over six million seedlings every year, renewably replacing the trees that we harvest.

The timber processed at the OneFortyOne Jubilee and Kaituna sawmills is turned into products that help people build and renovate their homes, construct fences on their farms, and support the landscaping in their gardens.

OneFortyOne is a significant regional employer, we employ more than 500 people directly and over 3,000 indirectly as contractors.

We are committed to the communities where our people live and strive to grow a better tomorrow through our environmental actions and community involvement, including the PINE Community Grants Program.

OneFortyOne acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their deep connections to land, water, and community. We pay our respect to Elders past and present and extend that respect to all First Nations people today.

In Aotearoa New Zealand, Māori communities have a strong spiritual connection between people and the land – the wellbeing of one sustains the wellbeing of the other. We strive to build meaningful relationships with iwi as tangata whenua (people of the land/region), to be responsible intergenerational kaitiaki (stewards/guardians) of the land where our forests grow.
