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 Project Coordinator to join our Metallurgical Maintenance team to manage capital and operational projects from concept through to detailed design, execution and project close-out. You have a Bachelor’s degree in engineering either mechanical, electrical or civil/structural streams or a trade qualification coupled with project management and mining construction or heavy industry construction experience.

Apply what you know to liaise with internal and external stakeholders to develop and manage project scope, budget and schedule to ensure project objectives are delivered safely, on time and within budget. Use your strong communication skills to effectively manage competing stakeholder requirements and to guarantee the project aligns to business priorities. Your commitment to safety and the environment is demonstrated through incorporating safety in the design and managing project risk throughout the whole project life cycle, resulting in safe execution.

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 engineering disciplines and a close working relationship with the maintenance and production departments. 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 the job.

The role reports to the Reliability and Project Management Specialist and is FIFO from Darwin, working 15 days on and 13 days off. From here, you can make the most of your extra-long weekends. 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 Territorys resources industry and how we contribute to our local area, the NT and our nation.

  • You are experienced in applying project management processes and can adapt them to suit the size and risk level of a project.
