Technical Services 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 site has a mining history that spans over a century and produced a diverse range of commodities but now has a completely new set of infrastructure built by MRL for its next phase as a lithium project.

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 we need from you?

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.

About the role
A great opportunity for a Technical Services Manager to lead a high performing technical team to deliver and own a fully integrated mine plan from pit to port for our Wodgina operations. A passionate and engaging team leader, you will display high levels of commitment and a demonstrated belief in our company values.  You will have the ability to engage with people at all levels of the business and demonstrate strong communication skills with the ability to effectively influence.

You will be responsible for managing the development and delivery of mine plans and technical services to key stakeholders in relation to mine engineering, D&B, mine geology, survey and integrated planning.

What we’re after

We’re looking for someone who enjoys a challenging yet rewarding work environment. You will be responsible for;

  • Leading the preparation of the site mine plan that enables the delivery of the integrated plan
  • Overseeing mine planning, grade control, production scheduling, spatial data, and stockpile management.
  • Supporting and developing a team of mining engineers, geologists, surveyors and pit technicians
  • Producing operational plans and reports including for daily, weekly and monthly timeframes, developing Mine Reconciliation Reports that are accurate and relevant from resource model to shipped product and maintaining a database of historic production performance
  • Leading a safety culture of continuous improvement and maintaining high level leadership at all times – Our people are empowered to make the right decisions

What you’ll bring to the team

  • A Degree in Mine Engineering, Geology or related disciplines
  • 10 years’ mine operations experience in the resources industry in a mix of technical and leadership roles, ideally with exposure to large open pit environments and selective mining techniques
  • Strong understanding of safety management and a positive approach to implementation and execution of pragmatic management systems
  • Experience in developing and improving technical services processes
  • Demonstrated understanding of relevant costs and capacity to achieve optimal outcomes
  • Identify, quantify and manage risks and opportunities across all areas of responsibility
  • Ensure that assets are planned and managed effectively to achieve budget utilisation rates across the mine
  • Competency with the major recognized mining software packages like Surpac, Alastri APS or XACT and the Microsoft Office suite of products.
