Humbling experience as corporate volunteers roll up sleeves at Makeables

Almost four weeks on from a day of volunteering at one of Multicap’s logistics warehouses, a team of Rio Tinto cyber security experts are still feeling the benefits.

The team of 15 rolled up their sleeves to work alongside employees at Multicap’s employment business, Makeables Tingalpa, packing and labelling goods on the production line.

Rio Tinto’s Chief Information Security Officer, Scotty Brown praised the experience as an opportunity for his team to come together with a sense of purpose.

“Not only did we get to connect outside our usual work environment, but it was also an opportunity to help others and give back to the community,” he said.

“The Makeables team were a wonderful group of people doing an incredible job. There was an overwhelming sense of fulfilment across our team, and we were humbled in many respects.”

Multicap’s Talent Pathways Specialist Kate Hanson said Rio Tinto was the first corporate group to volunteer at Multicap since the COVID-19 pandemic, thanks to a partnership with Volunteering Queensland.

“We were so happy to re-launch our corporate volunteering program after three years with the team from Rio Tinto,” Kate said.

“It’s a fantastic way for organisations and individuals to work alongside our supported employees in a fun and rewarding environment.”
