Job description:
  • Engineer your future
  • Darwin | Northern Territory | Australia
  • You love having a BLAST at work

Glencore’s McArthur River Mine (MRM) is a world-class zinc-lead mine with a long future. You’ll find our mine in the Gulf of Carpentaria 900 km southeast of Darwin and 64 km from Borroloola. We produce and process zinc, lead and silver from our open cut mine. It is then stored and transported to our Bing Bong loading facility and is shipped to our customers all over the world. Our customers use our essential commodities in everyday products for mobility, infrastructure and communications.

At MRM, we’re looking for a Mining Engineer with an explosive appetite to join our Technical Services team to coordinate our drill and blast activities. You have a degree in Mining Engineering (or similar), coupled with experience working as a Drill & Blast Engineer. You are an ambassador for safety – always keeping your mates safe in the workplace.

Apply what you know to oversee the drill and blast engineering functions, liaise with the crews to manage drill and blast designs and plans, solve complex problems, and carry out non-conformance investigations and end of month reconciliations and reporting. Your commitment to the environment and a fair community orientated team is just as important to you as the powder factor and burden spacing.

As a Glencore team member, we want to set you up for success. You’ll get to do this with our team of experts through coaching and mentoring opportunities and exposure across all short term and medium term planning disciplines, at a later stage, through appropriately timed development rotations. We will help you connect with new colleagues so you can build strong work relationships, grow your knowledge of the mining & metals industry and provide you with an environment that empowers you to get on with job.

The role reports to the Senior Mining Engineer and is FIFO from Darwin, working 15 days on and 13 days off. From here, you can make the most of your 13 day weekend. You will discover a rich culture and heritage, places like Kakadu and Uluru, attend exciting events & festivals, visit national parks & waterfalls, catch a barra and see crocodiles in the wild. We believe in the Territory first and will even move you here.

You’ll learn more about the important part we continue to play in the Territory's resources industry and how we contribute to our local area, the NT and our nation.

You are a good fit with this role if:

* You’re a Vulcan and Microsoft Office guru
* Your commitment to safety is second to none
* Can work well in a team but don’t mind rocking it solo
* Can communicate with the best of them in a fast paced and
challenging environment
* Want to make a lasting contribution at MRM and the wider
Glencore group
