Mining Manager - Wodgina

  • Pilbara, WA, Australia
  • Full Time

We are excited to announce that our Wodgina Lithium site is returning as an active mining and processing operation. We are preparing for operational readiness and our internal teams are moving to site and  Mineral Resources will have the opportunity to add to our capabilities with new people as well.

What makes this an exciting place to be?

Wodgina is a great site and is an eagerly sought after work location within Mineral Resources. The majority of equipment that we use is brand new or near new; that provides better uptime and is a great starting place for our operators and maintainers to work from.

Wodgina has a bright future ahead with a long forecast lifespan. This provides job security for our people as they look to build a long term career, and work to achieve their goals & aspirations.

What do you need from me?

First and foremost; a safety first approach to your work. We won’t compromise our production targets or maintenance of equipment if we can’t all go home safely each night. Our family and friends want us to be there to enjoy the benefits of the work we do while we are away from home.

Critical to the success of new projects and operations is to be able to draw upon the experience of the team onsite. We will need people who have been there and done it previously; people who are confident to shape the onsite safety and work culture; and people who are focused on achieving challenging targets together.

Every day will be different.

About the role

Reporting to the General Manager, your primary responsibility is to lead the mining operations;

  • Manage project schedules to ensure deadlines are met and team members are kept informed on progress
  • Maintain and foster a working environment which promotes safety in all that we do, whilst also providing outstanding service
  • Lead by example at all times and demonstrating high performance through clear expectations and direction
  • Lead the development, implementation and continuation of required mine planning, systems and processes
  • Ensure the safe, timely and efficient delivery of the Mining Operation’s targets whilst continuing to drive standards, reduce cost and improve output.
  • Develop and maintain relationships with key stakeholders.
  • Ensure the efficient utilisation of people, assets and equipment.

What you’ll bring to the team

  • Tertiary qualification in Mining Engineering, Geology or related discipline
  • Unrestricted Quarry Managers Certificate
  • Positive approach to implementation and execution of pragmatic safety management
  • Demonstrated experience managing successful Mining Operations within Australia
  • Strong understanding of Safety Management and associated legislative requirements
  • Excellent communication, organisational and problem solving skills
  • Demonstrated success in leading and developing diverse teams
  • A flair for challenging the norm and doing things different.

Why would I want to be part of this project?

  • New project – get in from the first days onsite and watch our site and team grow together
  • Fast paced supportive work environment – opportunity to influence change
  • Long term opportunities – career growth aspirations/ goals
  • Learn from experienced leaders
  • Family friendly rosters
  • Food and camp quality is second to none
  • Great pay; site allowances and a quarterly bonus too
