About BHP

Join our new South Flank Project
The South Flank Project is an expansion of BHP's existing Mining Area C hub, located approximately 130 km by road north-west of the town of Newman. This project has potential to become one of the largest standalone iron ore processing centres in the world, within reach of several billion tonnes of high-grade ore.

Embracing inclusion and diversity to create a vibrant culture that represents the communities in which we live, South Flank is focused on high performance, flexible work arrangements, strong Indigenous participation and gender balance.

This is a rare opportunity for a dynamic individual to be part of something big – to work in an innovative team, with evolving technology, and playing a pivotal role in creating a world class mine.

About the role

This role forms part of an energetic and safety focused Mining team and is integral to the overall successful delivery of Mining Production. Work in a mining production environment while operating the latest models of excavators.

Under the guidance and support of the Mining Supervisor, you will be in a multi skilled team environment to gain a detailed understanding of the latest operating techniques across various pieces of equipment. As a BHP employee you will undergo comprehensive training to successfully operate an excavator and Mine Services equipment.

About You

The South Flank Mine Services team invite applications from motivated individuals who are particularly focused on upskilling their equipment knowledge and enjoy an open pit environment. With a keen eye for detail, the successful candidate has a passion for delivering quality and value the importance of safety and enjoy collaborating in a team. Should you have prior experience production loading with an excavator then we would like to hear from you.

It is essential to hold a C Class Driver’s Licence and a HR Licence will be considered beneficial for this team.

What we offer you
Based at our new South Flank operation, we will provide you an environment where health and wellbeing are seen as a pre-requisite for safety and production. People are empowered, collaboration enabled and teams are connected to the strategy and plan. Our workforce is flexible, inclusive and diverse.

Candidates in pursuit of flexible work arrangements are encouraged to apply. Rosters will be based on a two weeks on (7 days, 7 nights) one week off pattern.

Supporting a diverse workforce

At BHP, we recognise that we are strengthened by diversity. We are committed to providing a work environment in which everyone is included, treated fairly and with respect. We are an Equal Opportunity employer and we encourage applications from women and Indigenous people. We know there are many aspects of our employees' lives that are important, and work is only one of these, so we offer benefits to enable your work to fit with your life.   

As part of our commitment to inclusion and diversity, we offer a range of family friendly work practices, including flexible work arrangements and a substantial parental leave policy, which now includes retirement savings / superannuation contributions during parental leave.

We reserve the right to commence recruitment proceedings immediately.#LIWA @BHP #ThinkBHP #ThinkBig #SouthFlank
