Recruitment commences for Ravensthorpe Nickel Operation

First Quantum Minerals has commenced recruiting for roles at the Ravensthorpe Nickel Operation in southern Western Australia.

The company is initially recruiting in the Great Southern and Goldfields Esperance regions to fill a wide range of positions, including operators and tradespeople, particularly electricians, boilermakers and fitters.

First Quantum Minerals has previously indicated to the Premier, the State Government and shareholders that it intends to start the mine and processing plant in early 2020.

Recruitment evenings are being held in Albany, Esperance, Hopetoun and Kalgoorlie during the week commencing 9th September. The sessions will provide an opportunity for interested people to register their interest in working with First Quantum.

The company will seek to recruit as many of its employees as possible from the region in order to enable people to live and work locally, ensuring they can balance good opportunities to gain experience and develop their career while maintaining a lifestyle balance by remaining near family and friends.

The company intends to operate regular bus transport services from both Albany and Esperance to enable employees to reach the site without driving. It will also provide opportunities for relocation to modern company housing at the seaside community of Hopetoun.

In addition to the 350+ roles at Ravensthorpe Nickel Operation, it is anticipated there will be up to a further 200 roles with the mining contractor. The start of the operation is likely to result over time in a further 1800 positions created as a multiplier effect across southern Western Australia.

Anyone interested in working at Ravensthorpe Nickel Operation is encouraged to visit one of the recruitment evenings or register and apply for jobs at:

Hopetoun – 9th September

Albany – 10th September

Esperance – 11th September

Kalgoorlie – 12th September
