HR Officer Overlooking Mine Site

Human Resources Professionals are focused on activities related to the employees of an organisation.

This can include:

  • Recruitment and selection
  • Training and development
  • Performance management
  • Remuneration
  • Employee relations including handling grievances, industrial relations including negotiating agreements, career management and workforce planning

Human resource professionals can work as generalists or specialise in specific areas of Human Resources.

A common misconception is that HR is the same across all industries and organisations. Whilst best practices principles and legislative interpretation is transferable across industries, the differential factors include the type of workforce and skills required, different work environments and how this affects employees.

In mining, Human Resource professionals can be based in a corporate office or site based, this affects the structure and responsibilities of their position and creates various challenges.

Managing Positions Generalist Roles Specialised Roles
HR Manager HR Consultant IR/ER Advisor/Specialist
HR Superintendent HR Advisor Recruitment Advisor/Coordinator
HR Coordinator Training Advisor/Coordinator
HR Officer Remuneration Advisor
HR Administrator

We have consultants dedicated to this space and over many years, we have matched great employers with great employees across a wide range of HR positions with varying seniority.

Looking to get a start within the industry?

Our Promise is to be honest with you and advise you if we are not able to help. The vast majority of MPI's clients require us to present candidates with at least 12 months of recent Australian mining experience. Therefore, we recommend that people without Australian mining experience contact mining and contracting companies directly as they do sometimes directly employ candidates without Australian mining experience themselves.

Please refer to the FAQ section of our website here for more information on how to get into the mining industry. Additionally, we are affiliated with an organisation that specialises in assisting people get into the mining industry and we recommend you review their website at
