Job description:
  • Graduate Mining Opportunity
  • Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia
  • Engineer your future


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 Graduate Mining Engineer to join our Technical Services team of experts in all phases of our mine design and operation. You’ve gained your mine engineering qualification (or related discipline) in the last two years and you’re not afraid to tackle the challenges associated with our unique and complex mining environment.

As a Glencore graduate we want to set you up for success. You’ll get to shape your future with the flexibility to choose your preferred areas of interest and rotations whether it be planning and design, drill & blast, production or a combination of all three. We will help you connect with new colleagues, deeply expose you to the mining & metals industry and provide you with a supportive environment to accelerate your learning.

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:


  • Your planning, scheduling and organisational skills are out of this world.
  • Your commitment to safety is second to none.
  • You can work well in a team but don’t mind rocking it solo.
  • You can communicate with the best of them in a fast paced and challenging environment.
  • You want to make a lasting contribution at MRM and the wider Glencore group.
