“I joined APA straight out of uni, after graduating with my Mechanical Engineering degree – it seemed like a great company with interesting work and travel. I’ve been with the company for seven years and have seen some amazing places. I’ve learned more about pipelines, steel, gas, compression, engines and – strangely enough – farming, than I’d ever thought possible. I have worked on large-scale site projects and repair works, and was responsible for engineering several of our Queensland flood response operations.”
