About the role

There are multiple roles available across Dragline, Truck/Shovel and Drill & Blast Planning on a 4/3 Roster.

The Mining Engineer role is a pivotal position within the Mine Scheduling team, which defines the what, how & when of the sites execution requirements in areas of drill & blast, overburden removal (truck shovel & draglines), and coal mining. 
The successful applicants will get exposure across all design and scheduling disciplines through appropriately timed development rotations.

This is a great opportunity to hone your mine planning and leadership skills as well as further develop a deep understanding of the key value drivers of a large complex open cut mining operation. You will gain exposure to a variety of stripping operations and mine geology whilst seeing the results of your work being implemented.

Your initial responsibilities:
  • Generate Execution Designs and handover to Production teams
  • Construct weekly plan through effective engagement with all stakeholders
  • Completion of monthly priorities aligned with Business Plan 
  • Strong engagement with Production & Mine Services customers to ensure plans are achievable
  • Pursue continuous improvement opportunities throughout your day to day work. 

A competitive package will be offered which will include subsided accommodation. We support flexible work roster arrangements and these will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

About You

As the successful candidate, you will have a tertiary education in Engineering and previous experience working at a large Coal Mining operation, particularly planning for Draglines and/or Truck & Shovel and/or Drill & Blast fleets.
Strong communication and interpersonal skills are a must, allowing you to build relationships across departments and to communicate at all levels. A strong working knowledge of Vulcan, XACT, and the Microsoft Office suite is essential and previous exposure to Blast Logic and HaulInfinity software will be advantageous.
