Does the idea of shaping the future appeal to you?

Our operations support regional communities, the economy and importantly, our combined actions help combat climate change.

This role is best suited to a team player with aptitude for these and appreciation of the importance of monitoring outcomes? Is this you?

Safety is a passion for us, as is further training and development through on the job learning and training programs. We are small enough to design such a program around you, but big enough to offer broad exposure that creates a great place to work and work life balance. We are open to flexible working arrangements and will favourably consider job sharing if the pool of applicants supports this.
