Employee Profiles

Sara Girmay – Graduate Metallurgist

Blake Charlton – Graduate Mechanical Engineer

“Since beginning the graduate program for Gold Fields at the Gruyere Gold Mine, I have been able to take on a variety of rolls in project management, maintenance & reliability and technical design.  I have been given the opportunity to manage key projects through the design, budgeting, planning, implementation, and commissioning phases, which has allowed me to gain an extensive amount of experience not often available to graduates.  I love the fast paced, supportive, and diverse environment that Gold Fields has to offer.”

Katie Hutchings – Graduate Community Development

“I am enjoying the opportunity to learn and develop in a supportive environment, where I have both autonomy and the support of a wonderful team! I feel lucky to have come into contact with so many great people ready and willing to share their knowledge. Influencing my decision to work at Gold Fields was their strong commitment to Environmental, Social Governance. Now as an employee, it’s exciting to see this commitment in action every day in my role.”

Zheng Yang – Graduate Mining Engineer

“I have not stopped learning since the day I arrived on site. This is from the fantastic team I have had the pleasure of growing with across all departments. It has been a joy learning about the culture of Aussie mining and sharing my own with them. I have made many friends.  Agnew mine site has been the best possible place for me to take my first steps into a career with a great company. The facilities, flights, commute, social activities all contribute to one happy Graduate Engineer.”

Omesh Bharatiya - Metallurgist (former Graduate)

“I’m Omesh, a metallurgist at Granny Smith gold mine. I completed my two-year graduate program with Gold Fields Australia at St Ives in December 2020.  During the program, I was fortunate enough to spend time and learn the different areas of the processing plant in addition to metallurgical accounting and relevant external training to develop my skills.  Further, I gained exposure to mining, environmental and sustainable development departments.
My advice for future applicants applying for a graduate program would be to spend time boosting their employability skills through vacation work or relevant internships, create a standout resume and be realistic about their targets.”
