Mining Manager - Wodgina

  • Port Hedland, WA, Australia, 6721
  • 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 focussed on achieving challenging targets together.

Every day will be different.
