Avoid inconvenience and project downtime

At WRS we understand that finding people with the relevant technical skills for key roles can be a major challenge to any mining operation with a finite internal recruitment resource. The inability to source pre-qualified personnel quickly can cause costly downtime on a project.

Working in partnership with the WRS Mining Division

The WRS specialist mining division has been placing contract and permanent candidates in the mining industry since 2010. Our consultants have access to a huge network of pre-qualified mid-senior level mining personnel and the means to draw upon a further pool of active and passive candidates through candidate attraction. We are focused on the recruitment support of mining operators and mining service providers and understand the importance of supplying staff for each of the different stages of a project from exploration study through to production.
