We are looking for a motivated, self-starter to join our growing team.

This will be a diverse and interesting technical position in a rapidly evolving sector. The role will have a significant focus on the use of mining technology and data, and can be broken down into three broad remits:

  • Mine Site Studies: Assist with on-site analysis to identify and quantify an operation’s unique challenges, and to provide recommendations on how they can be overcome.

  • Implementation of Technology and Data-Driven Solutions: Assist mines in measuring, managing and addressing these challenges (ranging from software and solution deployments through to change management and mentoring sessions).

  • Effective Data Visualisations: Develop and deploy appropriate and robust data visualisations to enable a site to manage specific challenges on an ongoing basis.

Training and mentoring will be provided to develop the individual’s technical expertise as required.

  • Mining optimisation (including load and haul, drill and blast, ore control, fuel optimisation, asset maintenance).

  • Mining technology implementations (typically as part of an optimisation project).

  • Large enterprise rollouts of mining continuous improvement projects.

  • Field follow and testing of new software solutions for a mining equipment manufacturer.

To qualify you must:

  • Possess an Operational Research/Engineering/Analytics related degree.

  • Be very technology focused with a strong interest in using systems and data to improve operational problems.

  • Interested in finding innovative but practical solutions to resolve complex challenges.

  • Interested in working in a dynamic environment combining technology, data, software and large mining equipment.

  • Flexible and able to work independently.

  • A good communicator - both written and orally.

  • A good listener (there is a consultancy element to the role).

  • Able to travel globally up to 50% of the time.




Competitive remuneration will be offered along with a bonus scheme.
