Graduate Human Resources - Immediate Start

Join us as a Graduate: Human Resources if you are ready to take the first step towards a successful career in the mining industry. 

Finding and developing our future leaders is something we're passionate about  

At Anglo American, we are committed to making lasting positive change for colleagues, host communities, consumers and our planet. Guided by our purpose and our values, we enable both high performance and purposeful action as we aim to “re-imagine mining to improve people’s lives”, delivering the metals and minerals that make modern life possible – from mobile phones to medicines.  

Job Description

We are looking for a highly motivated human resources graduate to join our 2022 graduate development programme. Commencing on your two-year development journey, your first placement will be in Dawson Mine. Whilst based at the site operation, you will gain exposure to the full HR generalist function, including workforce planning, recruitment, employee relations, performance management. You will develop key working relationships with our operational teams and drive best practice within the HR function. For this placement you will need to demonstrate exceptional time management, a customer service orientation and a keen interest in the resources sector.

Overall, your resilience, openness to change and demonstrated ability to drive best practice will see you thrive in the graduate programme and beyond as you continue your career with Anglo American.

This is a permanent opportunity for graduates who want to have a smarter future within mining.  Initially, you will be placed in a two-year graduate development program with Metallurgical Coal rotating to one or more of our sites located across Queensland (two twelve-month placements). You have the chance to make a difference in real projects and work across the open cut and underground mining. 

If you are ready to make the most of everything you’ve learned so far, be challenged, work together with industry leaders, and be a part of a supportive and a vibrant Graduate community, then Anglo American is ready for you.

You need to:  

  • Have a degree or postgraduate degree in Human Resources,
  • Have completed your degree within the last 2 years or are due to graduate by January 2022.
  • Have no more than two years of relevant work experience.
  • Be a team player with strong leadership potential.
  • Demonstrate drive, ambition and a passion for challenging work in our operations.
  • Be available to work in remote areas of Central Queensland as part of the Graduate Program (relocation package will be provided).

Who we are  

We aim to lead the industry by pursuing ever safer and more responsible ways of working, demonstrating integrity and showing care and respect for people and the planet. That means we are constantly seeking new opportunities to mine and process our products sustainably, using less water, less energy and more precise extraction technologies.  As the custodians of coal and other precious natural resources – diamonds (through De Beers), copper, platinum and other precious metals, iron ore and nickel – our extraordinary teams work safely and collaboratively, with the utmost consideration for local communities, our customers and the world at large.  

Background checks  

Successful candidates will be required to complete background screening which will include validation of qualifications and medical checks.  

Inclusion and Diversity  

We strive to create an inclusive environment for all employees. Women, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders are encouraged to apply for all vacant positions.  

How we are committed to your safety  

Nothing is more important to us than ensuring you return home safely after a day’s work. To make that happen, we have the most rigorous safety standards in the industry. Not only that, we’re also continually investing in new technologies – from drones to data analytics – that are helping to make mining safer.
