  • The perfect work life balance opportunity where you will be home every night, working Monday to Friday based at our state-of-the-art Operations Centre in Perth

About the role

Our state-of-the-art Operations Centre (OC) located near the Perth domestic airport is a key component of our Mine of the Future™ vision. The OC control room operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to coordinate our integrated network of mines, rail, power and ports. It enables all our mines, ports and rail systems to be operated from a single location, optimising site activities from 1,500km away.

We're looking for a Superintendent Ports Operations Centre Control to lead a highly engaged team of supervisors and controllers in the remote operation and optimisation of assets for our Iron Ore Port Operations.

This role will see you working closely across a large and diverse stakeholder group consisting of both operational and functional leaders and you’ll need to utilise your outstanding ability to partner with other areas of our networked organisation to influence positive outcomes for the business. You will be utilising cutting edge technology to drive production performance, productivity improvements and assist in building a highly productive and predictable organisation. You'll operate in-line with business priorities (safety, people, production, cash and partnership) while being supported in developing and implementing key productivity improvements to drive operational efficiency. Building and developing our people capability will also continue to be a strong focus for our leaders.

If you love genuine challenge in your work, thrive in working with a diverse range of stakeholders, and relish devising new ways to tackle problems, this role will not disappoint! 

About you.

We’re looking for someone who can positively influence the behaviours of those around them, and effectively collaborate with a diverse stakeholder group. We want you to want to make a difference. We want your energy, your fresh ideas and perspective. We're looking for someone who is results driven with a genuine passion for providing authentic and positive people leadership.

Although experience in mining is ideal, we also appreciate that diversity of thought comes from our differences – and that’s what makes us great. So, if you have an operational leadership background and experience running a large control room outside of the resources industry, we'd love to invite your application. Plus, we're confident that you will have an experienced and capable leader to support you.
