About the role

Reporting to the Superintendent Operations Planning, as the Mine Planning Specialist you will be engaged in providing design, scheduling and execution direction around the +1 to 12 week time frame to our Peak Downs Operation. Use your already solid mine planning skills and experience in this busy and challenging short-term mine planning role to develop effective working relationships with the operational and medium-term planning teams, in order to ensure the efficient execution of your plans and schedules.

This is a great opportunity to hone your mine planning skills as you gain exposure to a variety of equipment and mine geology whilst seeing the results of work as your pit is developed. You will also have access to a supportive, inclusive and results-oriented leadership team.

Key Responsibilities:

Strong communication and interpersonal skills are a must, allowing you to build relationships across departments and to communicate with disciplines at all levels. A strong working knowledge of Vulcan, XACT and Microsoft Office software packages are essential. Haulage software experience such as Haul Infinity or Deswik will be highly regarded.
