Mould Worx staff member enjoys team environment
Mould Worx staff member Bill Good said getting up for work each day is so much easier when you’re working with a great team of people and receiving lots of support.
As Mould Worx’ Maintenance Coordinator Bill is responsible for monitoring and maintaining machinery and equipment used to remove mould and return surfaces to a “good as new” state, a process known as remediation.
With a constant eye on improvement, Bill is also involved in Research and Development, looking for better methods of remediation.
“But what I really love about my job is that every day brings a new challenge, new opportunities and a new surprise,” Bill said.
“I’ve always seen myself as a trail blazer rather than a follower.
“I don’t like predictable and boring so I love a bit of surprise in my work day.”
Bill has worked for more than 40 years as an electrician and then in refrigeration and air conditioning maintenance.
“During the course of my career I’ve experienced a lot,” he said.
“I’ve worked for myself and more recently, I’ve worked for a multinational company with more than 400,000 employees worldwide supplying remote area services to the mines in Western Australia.
“Four years ago, I was working at a mine site camp outside of Port Hedland when the opportunity came up to work for Mould Worx (a subsidiary of Mycologia) and I jumped at the chance to work for a smaller, family-based company.”
Bill was born and bred in the bush and although he knew early on that farming wasn’t for him, completing his apprenticeship with a city-based electrician had him yearning to get back to country life.
“I’m now working out of Karratha on a fly-in-fly-out basis,” he said.
Bill said the arrangement has been perfect for him and although he’s nearing retirement age he has no intention of hanging up his work boots any time soon.
And in his spare time, Bill enjoys rally car driving in charity ‘bush bash’ events and flying ultra-light aircraft.
“I do work hard for 14 days straight but then I have 14 days off which means I get six months of holidays a year,” he said.
