New Mt Isa mine seeking 50 workers for immediate start
SES Labour Solutions is proud to partner with Round Oak Minerals to place 50 new mining production roles at the Barbara open pit gold and copper mine, 60 kilometres north-east of Mt Isa.
Though currently untouched, the greenfield site is expected to spring into action rapidly. Work is scheduled to commence in March with a view to producing the mine’s first ore by mid-2019.
The site will require a wide range of vehicle operators with open cut mine experience, including haul trucks, dozers, graders, excavators and watercarts as well as heavy duty fitters and servicemen.
SES Labour Solutions Executive General Manager, Nathan Sharpe said the mine represents a golden opportunity for northern Queensland workers.
“The mine’s schedule will be structured around 12 hour shifts, through a 2/1 roster, which means there is tremendous potential for skilled and motivated workers to earn well – but there is also stability on offer too, as our intention is to engage these workers for the full duration of the mine’s expected two-year lifespan,” Mr Sharpe said.
However, he cautions that what they are seeking in candidates is more than just experience.
“Given that Barbara is an unestablished greenfield site, we’re particularly mindful of the impact this group of new workers will have upon the mine’s emerging culture. It’s very important to both Round Oak Minerals and SES Labour Solutions that we bring in people who not only match the skillsets required, but will actively contribute toward creating the strong culture of efficiency and productivity we want for the site.”
SES Labour Solutions is primarily interested in engaging locals residing in the Mt Isa and Cloncurry areas, but will also be considering suitably qualified workers from Townsville, Brisbane and other parts of Queensland as needed.
