About BHP

At BHP we support our people to grow, learn, develop their skills and reach their potential. With a global portfolio of operations, we offer a diverse and inclusive environment with extraordinary career opportunities.  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. Come and be a part of this success.

About the role

BHP is committed to investing in our operations, our people and communities to ensure we have the right technology, skills, and culture we need to succeed and excel in the future.  To ensure an integrated approach to automation across the value chain, BHP established the Value Chain Automation (VCA) program of work. It is a systems approach to a fully integrated ecosystem of automated processes, decisions and equipment across sites, supply chains and functions.
As part of the VCA program, BHP is studying autonomous haulage under the equipment automation program of work, following the successful roll-out of our first fully autonomous haul truck fleet at Jimblebar in late 2017.
AHA is looking for new team members for the project execution phase.

About the Role 
Reporting to the Superintendent Operations Readiness, you will be part of a core team that will accelerate the Autonomous Haulage capability growth with BHP. This role will drive rapid improvement through people, process and systems. You will work with the Principal of Continuous Improvement to deliver the project bench marks.
This role is responsible for:

• The application of continuous improvement fundamentals for use within autonomous haulage;
• Building a Continuous Improvement community focused on developing analytical tools to use the data generated by Autonomous vehicles;
• Working closely with site improvement teams and the data reporting team to design and execute reports that support rapid productivity improvement;
• Designing and implementing a bench marking method and tools to undertake bench marking across the business;
• Supporting a program for coaching best practice within the operations related to autonomous haulage; and,
• Establishing critical key relationships with the site leadership team and supporting improvement initiatives within the operation.

While your role is based out of our Brisbane office, you will work at site extensively, connecting with the operations and ensuring the solutions and processes you are developing are tailored to site. In this role you will actively engage with the teams on site and develop comprehensive solutions that will enable the operational team to operate safely and productively in an autonomous environment.

This is a great opportunity for a driven professional to be involved in BHPs growth in a cutting edge technology/mining transformation project. This position will have freedom to develop strategies and process in a new and exciting area of the business.

About You

You have safety at the forefront of your mind when you develop solutions and engage with people. You understand mining operations and have experience in continuous improvement initiatives and or projects. You have a high level of analytical skills and experience using software applications that support these skills. You can communicate clearly and can develop trusted relationship with your stakeholders. Ideally you have experience in fleet management systems or autonomous haulage although this is not essential.
