About BHP

Our purpose is to bring people and resources together to build a better world. This is why we exist as a company and at the heart of this is our people. At BHP, our people work together to learn and embrace new ways to discover their potential.

People sit at the heart of our values and we put their safety first, always. With a global portfolio of operations, we offer a diverse and inclusive environment with extraordinary career opportunities.  We celebrate the unique contributions our people make to our Company and to the world.

We work together with communities through partnerships that create investments, provide jobs and generate opportunities for families, towns, regions, and nations.
We produce the resources essential for global progress and we share the benefits fairly for generations to come. We contribute to a resilient environment.

Potash is a potassium-rich salt mainly used in fertiliser to improve the quality and yield of agricultural production. As an essential nutrient for plant growth, potash is a vital link in the global food supply chain. BHP holds exploration permits and mining leases covering approximately 9,600 square kilometres in the province of Saskatchewan, Canada.

The Jansen Potash Project, located approximately 140 km east of Saskatoon, is BHP’s first potash project. Jansen will add diversity and a Canadian presence to our global portfolio. Jansen’s large resource endowment provides the opportunity to develop it in stages, with anticipated initial capacity of 4 Mtpa.

About the role

This is an exciting opportunity to join our Human Resources (HR) team, based in Saskatoon, SK. This role is accountable for providing leadership, expertise, and advisory support in people management, remuneration, employee relations, and HR strategy. The role will lead the continued development and implementation of HR and workforce strategies, ensuring alignment to Potash and BHP business goals.  This role will report to the Head of HR for Canada and provide day-to-day leadership and support to the Potash HR team to deliver on priorities.

As the Manager HR, you will be responsible for:

  • Supporting the Head of HR in establishing informed HR strategies, plans, and budgets that are aligned to BHP and Potash business goals;
  • Leading and coordinating the completion of appropriate project/study deliverables, work and workforce plans, and estimates for project phases including future operations;
  • Providing support for employee relations, labour relations or other HR issues as required;
  • Leading organisational development and change initiatives to support the Potash business and HR strategy;

About You

The successful candidate will have a post-secondary degree or diploma in a relevant discipline or the equivalent experience/education combination. You will need experience managing and developing a team of professionals. Experience with employee relations and aligning and implementing HR strategy would also be an asset, but is not a requirement.

Your communication and influencing skills will be key strengths and you will be experienced in dealing with an array of stakeholders at various levels within the business.  You are experienced at building relationships and collaborating with stakeholders across a number of teams and levels within the organization, locally and globally. You will be a self-starter who has an eye for detail and is agile to change.

The safety of BHP’s people and our candidates is our number one priority. Due to the unfolding circumstances of COVID-19 and the Government regulations in place to deal with the pandemic,   your working location and/or roster as advertised in this advert may be temporarily subject to change whilst the government regulations are in place. This is to ensure the health safety of our workforce, and to implement effective social distancing measures.  These changes if applicable will be discussed at screening and interview stage.
