Scott Prince talks about his ambassador role working with Indigenous trainees through WorkPac.
Scott Prince is an Australian former professional rugby league footballer of the 1990s, 2000s and 2010s. An Australian international and Queensland State of Origin representative halfback, he played club football for the Wests Tigers (whom he led to the 2005 premiership, winning the Clive Churchill Medal), the Gold Coast Titans, Brisbane Broncos and the North Queensland Cowboys.
Scott is a very proud Aboriginal man from the Kalkadoon tribe in the Mount Isa region, something he cherishes and embraces. His father worked in the mining town and this has given Scott good insight into the Murri’s in the Mines Program offered by JobTrail.
His work as ambassador involved him assisting new Indigenous employees with the transition into mining, being away from family and motivation to persevere. He connects his sporting experience and need for teamwork to the employees and their workplace.
