As a growing company, Wisely Group is committed to supporting local communities. Through our community programs and ‘buy local’ initiatives, we foster a culture where local community engagement is a primary consideration when sourcing goods and services. Wisely Group supports local events, charities, junior sport and individual achievers to promote active engagement in the community.

 

 


150 JOBS ACROSS THE REGION

Wisely Group will be employing 150 people from across the region.

The jobs come after successfully securing a tender with BHP for a three year maintenance contract at Blackwater Mine. Multiple trade disciplines including diesel fitters, service technicians, boilermakers and electricians will make up the 150 jobs.

The staff will be sourced locally and Mr Wisely is excited to give back to the community when the project begins.

Wisely Services have been awarded the Evans Landing Wharf Re-decking Project at the Port of Weipa.

Constructed in the 1960s, the landing has serviced the community, as well as commercial marine operations in the area.

Wisely Services are executing general structural repairs, improvements and blasting and painting works.  With the replacement of the current timber deck being upgraded to pre-cast concrete panels.

 


RACQ CQ RESCUE

Wisely Group recently supported the 2018 RACQ CQ Rescue Las Vegas Casino Gala Fundraising Dinner where we partnered as a Bronze Sponsor. What a  fabulous result for the evening as the 2018 RACQ CQ Rescue Las Vegas Casino Gala Fundraising Dinner  surpassed all expectations, raising more than $100,000 from the event.

Without the help of organisations like Wisely, RACQ CQ Rescue would be unable to provide essential and lifesaving service to this community.

 


PIONEER TENNIS

Wisely Group is proud to support Pioneer Tennis, as they commence their growth period with the constructing of 2 new ITF (International Tennis Federation) standard courts.  This facility will assist the Mackay community and Pioneer Tennis with securing International Tournaments in the near future.

 


OUTSTANDING WORK

On the 23rd of January 2018 our step up Maintenance Manager, Dave Byrnes, presented Mark Harrison and Matt Firth with certificates of recognition for outstanding work at our Safe Start meeting. Matt was recognised for a PL4/5 for picking up possible potable water contamination at both central and CHPP fuel farms and the heavy vehicle wash pad. Mark was recognised for the work he completed in WAVE and Continuous Improvement space. This shows the great work our team is continuously completing, it’s great to see the site recognising their efforts.

 


CHRISTMAS APPEALS

Wisely Group would like to take the opportunity to thank those of you that participated in the two fund raising events “Triple M – I Believe in Christmas Toy Appeal” and “Anglicare Food & Gift Hampers” we held this year.

We think there’s no better way to share the joy of Christmas with people in need than to donate food and toys to those families who would otherwise go without.

Your generosity is very greatly appreciated in the spirit of Christmas.

 


MOVEMBER

The Kenmare A Crew once again participated in Movember and raised $6,690.00. An outstanding effort from those that particpated in this cause to “Stop Men Dying Too Young”.

“The Movember Foundation is saving and improving men’s lives through projects focused on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention”.

RIVER TO REEF CHARITY RIDE

Congratulations to the team for successfully completing the 35km division of the River 2 Reef Charity Ride that was held on the 30th September 2017.

A great effort from those that participated with all funds raised going to two local charities – RACQ CQ Rescue and Sporting Wheelies and Disabled Association.

 


RU OK? DAY

Wisely Group’s head office took part in a breakfast to support RU OK? Day, with guest speaker Paul Kelly from Grapevine Group which provides Suicide Prevention training regionally to employers, community and sporting groups.

14th September marked the national RU OK? Day dedicated to reminding everyone that we’ve all got what it takes to ask “are you ok?” and support those struggling with life.

RU OK? Has a simple message – Ask, Listen, Encourage Action and Check In.  If you have a niggling feeling that someone you know or care about isn’t behaving as they normally would, start a conversation with them about the changes you’ve noticed.  You may help that person to open up.  If they say they’re not ok, you can follow these steps to show them they’re supported and help them find strategies to better manage their load.  If they are ok, that person will know you’re someone who cares enough to ask.
