Queensland Metals Business - George Fisher Mine
Mount Isa, QLD
Ref. No. R4-37704

As one of the largest global zinc lead mines, our George Fisher Mine offers our employees unique and challenging opportunities. So, if you are looking for a role that will challenge you with size and complexity, increase your knowledge of underground operations from life of mine planning to short-term execution, whilst preparing yourself to take on a leadership role, then this is it.

Due to a recent internal promotion, we require a Mid-Term Planning Engineer to join our Technical Services Team. Reporting to the Senior Mid-Term Planning Engineer your primary function will be to translate the long-term plan into a high quality, safe and executable plan using Deswik software. This is a crucial step for the business in ensuring the delivery of an effective operational plan to the short-term team for execution. This is an excellent opportunity to expand your horizons in the technical space working with both the short and long-term planning teams as well as operational and other engineering discipline stakeholders. You will also have the opportunity to develop your leadership skills as you coach and mentor graduate engineers as required.

We're looking to attract and retain talented people, so we focus on what's important, you. While it is easy to focus on remuneration, other benefits include training, personal development programs and recognition programs that are available to help develop your career, as well as a location that offers far more than most people realise. This position is offered as residential in Mount Isa on a 5:2 4:3 roster and relocation benefits will be provided to the successful applicant.

Our mining operation is on land traditionally owned by the Kalkadoon People and we respect their rights and interests. Mount Isa Mines encourages suitably qualified indigenous applicants to apply.

Please Note: This role requires a degree in Mining Engineering . or Civil Engineering and Geoscience disciplines if already experienced in underground hardrock mining mine planning.

Whilst the term "planning" does cross over to other engineering disciplines, in this instance it does not relate to Mechanical or Industrial or Mechatronics etc...
It has to do with planning the mine, not plant maintenance.
