Unearthing the Best Resources

About Rock People

Rock People are international mining talent specialists, with an unparalleled level of global experience in the recruitment of professional, technical and executive mining appointments for the mining and resources sectors. We provide an array of tailored recruitment solutions and HR consulting services to mining and exploration companies from executive search to targeted recruitment, recruitment outsourcing (RPO) and contract staffing / contingent labour solutions. Our aim is to help employers find the best talent and assist candidates to source their ideal job so you can continue discovering, developing and mining the earth’s resources.

Finding the perfect match

We understand there has to be a ‘meeting of the minds’ between employers and candidates in order for there to be a successful long term employment relationship. As a result, not only do we seek to match skills & experience required for a vacancy, but also career aspirations, travel & location requirements, candidate motivations and cultural preferences in order to make the best match possible.

Unparalleled success rate

Throughout our many years of recruiting and hundreds of permanent placements, we have a miniscule number of candidates leaving their roles within the first 6 months, in fact, it’s less than 1%!
