Field Assistant

  • Koolyanobbing, WA, Australia, 6427
  • Full Time

WA is a state (and an economy) built on mining.

At Mineral Resources (MinRes), we are focused on growing our success by delivering industry leading projects that benefit our people, our shareholders and the community. With this growth comes new roles and those rare opportunities to get noticed and achieve meaningful results.

MinRes has come a long way – but we’re really just getting started.

About the role

The purpose of this role is to assist the Field Operations Supervisor in the execution of MinRes Exploration activities, where you will be on a 8/6 roster arrangement across our Lithium and Iron Ore project sites. 

Be a integral member part of the exploration  development program and have the potential opportunity as a progression step in the development pathway to the Field Operations Supervisor role.

In this position you’ll:

  • Working with RC, Diamond, Hydro rigs and other sampling techniques
  • Assisting and overseeing the sampling collection, handling, data entry and dispatch
  • Core mark-ups, cutting up and sampling of core in a safe manner
  • Transport samples across and off site where needed
  • Assisting and overseeing stocktaking, ordering and purchasing control
  • Assisting and overseeing boundary surveying, collar and pad pegging, using GPS
  • Assisting  remote areas surveys and working alongside  environmental and heritage advisers
  • Participate in daily pre-starts, weekly Toolbox and other periodic safety meetings
  • Conduct regular safety initiatives such as hazard reports and field interactions

We’re creating opportunities for you to own projects and deliver results. From start through to completion, your fingerprints will be there.

Because here you don’t get lost in layers of people; you step up to make your mark and can easily see your contribution.

At MinRes, you get noticed when you maximise opportunities and build a better project, a better team, a better workday.

Supporting you to work the way that works for you? MRL would.

Necessary skills and qualifications:

  • Minimum 1-2 years' experience in Field technician/ assistant role across the mining industry
  • Previous experience with exploration drill rigs is preferred but not essential
  • Good interpersonal skills and the ability to work independently at remote sites
  • Senior/Provided First Aid
  • 4wd training
  • Well-developed communication skills– both oral and written
  • Ability to work autonomously and within a team environment
  • Meet deadlines and manage priorities to meet deadlines
  • Attention to detail
  • Enthusiastic, energetic, solutions-based and eager to learn

Flexibility and job security

They’re two things MinRes employees value and, when we say job security, it’s not just about staying somewhere safe that no longer serves you.

Here, job security means working to your strengths, being challenged on each project, and achieving meaningful results that inspire you to choose to stay long-term.

“That’s how we’ve always done it” doesn’t exist here, because the value you bring to MinRes will shape your role – and your contribution to our company.

It’s the kind of flexibility that extends to opportunities to co-create your preferred work environment.

And then there’s the extra benefits

We look after our people because they’re the ones looking after our business.

That means a range of additional benefits for choosing MinRes, including:

  • Competitive salary
  • Quarterly cash bonuses
  • Generous leave options
  • Employee discounts and offers
  • Physical and mental health programs
  • Salary packaging
