Our mining operation provides you with the opportunity to live locally and go home every day or stay in our Village for your roster and DIDO.  We are only 130kms from the Perth CBD and approximately 100kms from the coast.

Additional responsibilities include the identification and design of continuous improvement initiatives within the control system, management of minor capital projects, and ensuring that all engineering documentation is kept up to date and in an auditable format.


Who you are

You will have an Electrical Instrumentation trade certificate or diploma and significant process control systems experience in an operating plant (preferably using Yokogawa DCS and Allen Bradley PLC’s). Your experience in the mining industry, preferably in gold or base metal milling operations together with your advanced problem solving skills and attention to detail will be essential to your success in this role.  You will have excellent communication skills and a solid understanding of industrial process control systems including communication networks (Profibus, Modbus, HART, Fibre and Ethernet) and radio telemetry systems.


What you will gain

Our employees enjoy a generous salary package including private health insurance and an annual performance based incentive.  Not only will you work in a dynamic and collaborative environment but you will also benefit from the opportunities that only a global company can offer.
