Open Pit and Underground Supervisor Recruitment

Please enter an image description.

Recruitment for these critical front line leadership positions often falls between operator level and professional technical level recruitment work. As a result, it is sometimes paid inadequate attention or assumed to be easy. At MPi, we take a different view.

Key front line leadership roles require a professional recruitment approach, so as to identify the nuances required to make a great Supervisor or Leading Hand.

We understand the working environments and therefore can spend more time on cultural fit and the leadership attributes of supervisory and leading hand candidates.

We have carried out recruitment assignments for Supervisors and Leading Hands across all working environments including:

  • Underground Mine Superintendents & Project Managers
  • Underground Mining Supervisors
  • Surface Mine Superintendents & Project Managers
  • Surface Mining Supervisors
  • Mine Construction – Civil Supervisors

We also understand that different geographic and technical jurisdictions require different statutory qualifications and certifications.

We can help with this and have managed hundreds of recruitment assignments for numerous job seniority levels, both internationally and within Australia.
