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 exciting scheduling role on the South Flank Project will help co-ordinate the execution of the mine schedule and ensure mining activities are conducted in accordance with all relevant statutory obligations. Your key focus will be to provide clear plans and instructions around production & development tasks to achieve daily and weekly plans.

Support will also need to be provided to the planning group and maximize compliance with short term production plans and schedules. You will also monitor and report against the Mine Planning work plan and report any significant deviation from the weekly plans to the Superintendent Mine Scheduling & Performance.

About You

You will achieve success by utilising your strong scheduling capabilities, accompanied with your sound understanding of open pit mining operations. As a highly motivated team player, you will demonstrate high level interpersonal skills and have a keen eye for detail.

Qualifications in Mining, Survey, Geology or similar will be highly regarded. Experience with software packages such as Blazor, Vulcan, Fleet Management Systems and Excel will be required.

What we offer you

Working on 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.

This is a fly in fly out (FIFO) opportunity working on 8 days on, 6 days off roster, however, those in pursuit of flexible work arrangements are encouraged to apply.

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

Please note, in order to be considered for this role you must have full working rights in Australia. Screening and interviews may take place prior to the advertised close date.
