Situated approximately 340 kilometres south east of Port Hedland, our world-class operation is the only independent iron ore business with West Australian majority ownership.

• Drive the maintenance team to deliver efficient and effective work practices that result in high quality maintenance work i.e.  no rework due to poor work practices
• Ensure that Supervisors are given the resources required to safely maintain the reliability of equipment and that they are held accountable for their teams’ performance
• Develop and implement the training and induction plan for the maintenance team and provide opportunities for people to develop and advance in their careers
• Identify maintenance tooling requirements and implement the procure/hire strategy
• Constantly seek opportunities to improve people, processes and equipment
• Spend appropriate time in the plant observing how your people and equipment operate

‘The Real You’
For you to achieve outstanding results in this position, you will have a strong Port Maintenance background along with the following: -
• Bachelor’s Degree in engineering or similar technical field; or, an appropriate trade qualification with a demonstrated combination of training and experience
• Demonstrated Fixed Plant Maintenance supervisory and leadership experience preferably at Superintendent Level
• Experience with the operation, maintenance and control of materials handling equipment including large conveyor systems, car dumpers, stackers and reclaimers and screens
• Experience with SAP
• Experienced in planning and scheduling of work and resources
• Strong safety, environment and cultural heritage focus
• Strong Fault-finding and problem-solving skills with a "can-do" attitude


‘The Real Offer’
Our people are the driving force behind the growth of the business and our success. We are committed to attracting and retaining people who have the right mix of skills, knowledge, leadership and motivation to operate one of Australia’s largest and most innovative integrated iron ore mining, rail and port operations.
