RobLawMax are exclusively partnered with a reputable mining business who have a critical requirement for a Mine Manager to be responsible for the oversight of all mining activities at a globally reputable site. Reporting to the Operations Director, you’ll direct all open pit mining activities, lead production and tech services with key responsibility for consistent safe operations. You’ll lead a diverse team of expats and national employees, applying a leadership style that empowers and mentors nationals to develop and succeed.

To be considered for this role, you must possess the following: 

  • Tertiary qualifications in Mining Engineering or similar (civil, geotechnical, surveying)

  • At least 15 years’ experience in open pit mining operations

  • At least one expatriate assignment at a remote international site

  • Previous work with a mining house, with exposure to a mining contractor favourable

  • Exceptional safety track record

  • Proven experience in leading diverse workforces with a collaborative demeanour
