Compass Group, through its dedicated Offshore and Remote sector brand ESS is a major provider of food services, accommodation and facilities management to the resources sector. To enhance the FIFO resident experience Compass Group has developed the Village Life concept.

Village Life combines consumer research, fresh thinking and contemporary design to create a home-away-from-home lifestyle for FIFO residents. The services and programs offered are designed to create thriving communities - whether it be in remote locations or offshore – by nurturing social bonds, encouraging health and wellbeing and fostering a shared sense of community.

Gateway Village in Port Hedland is an ESS property purpose built for FIFO workers, providing superior quality ensuite accommodation, spacious recreation areas, a great choice of dining outlets, and a leisure program including access to healthy lifestyle coaches.
