Rail Transport Technicians / Locomotive Operators - Expressions of Interest
The scale of our rail operation is pretty impressive. And for experienced rail professionals, the benefits are right on the money too. What else would you expect from one of the leading suppliers of iron ore to the global steel industry?
BHP Billiton Iron Ore's mining operations in the spectacular Pilbara region of WA are one of the largest in Australia, shipping over 100Mtpa of iron ore. Our railways, consisting of 800km of track, connect the mines and shipping facilities. This is the heaviest haulage rail system in the world, operating a fleet of General Electric and General Motors Diesel Electric locomotives and over 2,500 ore cars with state of the art technology including Locotrol, Automatic Train Protection and Centralised Traffic Control.
Port Hedland is the largest regional centre in the northwest, close to Broome and Karijini National Park. The 14,000-strong population enjoys well-established entertainment, sporting, shopping and medical facilities, and a strong sense of community.
General expressions of interest are now being taken to join our 'driver only' team and enjoy challenges and rewards that simply can't be matched. With a focus on maximising production through the delivery of ore trains to the mines and ports, you will use your initiative to minimise delays and ensure production targets are achieved. You will have an "A" Class locomotive Drivers Certificate and/or a current Certificate of Competency as a Rail Transport Technician, and be totally committed to safety. Recent and extensive heavy haulage experience, a high level of train management skills and the ability to monitor and report on rolling stock faults and track conditions are essential.
To reward your talent and commitment we will offer an unbeatable remuneration and benefits package, including subsidised housing, an incentive bonus, generous superannuation and long service provisions, and annual leave travel assistance.
