"Through our Enterprise businesses, real jobs and lifelong careers are being established in Arnhem Land. It is satisfying to see an increase in employment opportunities within our member communities."

Steve Roberts joined ALPA, excited by the possibilities of helping build new enterprises in remote communities as General Manager,  Enterprise and Economic Development.

Steve has been involved in the construction industry since 1976 and is a registered NT builder, Clerk of Works, and Business Manager. He presently oversees ALPA’s Enterprise businesses including Manapan Furniture, Bukmak Constructions, Rulku Lodge and Dinybulu Regional Services.

Steve's goal is to maximise the capacity and capability of the people living in these communities by teaching and transferring skill sets through on-site training; and creating employment opportunities for the local Yolngu to facilitate their independence and self-determination.
