Our strategy is to focus on creating a safe work environment where our employees feel strongly connected to our values and objectives, and where the capability of our people is key to our success.

About the role

An opportunity like this does not come across often. Want to take on the challenge of a leadership role for one of the largest open-cut operations in the world?

Goonyella Riverside is entering an exciting period with numerous transformation activities underway. With the introduction of automated haulage, BHP Operating System (BOS) and the deployment of Operations Services (OS) into the business, we are dividing our large Maintenance Department portfolio into two distinct fields. Reporting to the General Manager, this change introduces an exciting opportunity for someone to join our team site leadership team. 

About You

We are searching for an experienced people leader, who has the capability to draw the best from a diverse workforce that is distributed across our large operational footprint.  You will have experience in delivering exceptional Health, Safety & Environment results, a demonstrated capability to manage a substantial operational expenditure portfolio and experience in working with multiple internal and external functional and stakeholder groups.

As the Manager - Fixed Plant and Infrastructure your key areas of responsibility will be the safe provision of operational performance across our two Coal Handling Preparation Plants, Dragline fleet and our site infrastructure assets. Previous experience in maintaining such a portfolio is desirable, however not a necessity and the role provides an individual with the unique opportunity to step into a position that will test you and present exciting development opportunities.


Goonyella Riverside Mine is located 30km north of Moranbah. Roster and residential arrangements are flexible and would be a matter for further discussion through the recruitment process.

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.  These benefits include flexible working options, a generous paid parental leave policy, other extended leave entitlements and parent rooms.  


The safety of BHP’s people and our candidates is our number one priority. To protect the health and safety of vulnerable persons in line with current Government advice, you may be asked to undergo a COVID-19 related health assessment. 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.
