There is an increasing demand for innovation, disruptive technology and creative IT solutions across all industries reinforcing the need for IT technical experts.

Information technology in the mining and resources space utilises generic operating platforms and systems prevalent across industries. However, in certain sub sectors, there exists highly specialised needs for mining industry information technology (IT) experts experienced with the following in particular:

  • Geological modelling software
  • Mine planning software
  • Ore reserve/resource computing
  • Automation
  • Process control

We understand the factors that influence cultures of mining businesses and have matched great employers with great employees across a wide range of positions including:

  • IT Level 1,2,3 and 4 Technicians
  • Helpdesk, First Line Support
  • Systems Administrators
  • IT Engineers
