From an interest first sparked while attending secondary school in Karratha, Shelley Robinson has gone on to grow an impressive career in oil and gas, iron-ore, renewables and infrastructure. In her role as Executive General Manager – Energy, Shelley’s leading a passionate team driving key projects that are helping to shape MinRes' energy future.
“Karratha is a town which only exists because of the oil and gas, and resources. I was surrounded by people working in the industry and to me it seemed an exciting, larger-than-life industry filled with career potential”.
“One of the most fulfilling aspects of my job is helping to build a culture that supports a cohesive, engaged and high-performing team, and supporting others develop and grow in their chosen career”.
With three children of her own Shelley knows the importance of work life balance and credits disciplined routines in helping her manage work and family life: exercise, relaxation, trying to get plenty of sleep and having a supportive partner who contributes to running the household and the family.
Working hard to manage her work commitments and be there for important childhood events helped define the type of leader Shelley is today. She's a strong advocate for work-life balance and flexibility, which helps ensure our MinRes team have a rewarding, enriched experience in the workplace alongside a happy and healthy family life.
“It’s so important to maintain a work life balance in any chosen career. My work life has been incredibly busy and fulfilling over the years, with lots of international travel taking me away from home”.
As Chair of the MinRes Diversity and Inclusion Steering Committee, Shelley leads initiatives to bring more women into our workforce and grow our gender balance.
“MinRes' evolving culture supports equality and a sense of family, offering a welcoming and inclusive environment for all people. We talk about MinRes as a family and we live this sentiment through our values”.
At MinRes, we’re passionate about helping our people live their best lives, whatever that means for them.
