Recruitment will be split into two phases. The first phase will concentrate on underground activities, while the second focuses on surface activities and other mine areas.

The following full-time positions have been advertised:

  • environmental officers (multiple positions)
  • developmental mechanical coordinator
  • human resources administrator
  • business improvement analyst
  • technical services associate
  • ventilation coordinator
  • mine deputy.

Cooper also invited locals, who are keen to work in the industry, to consider the Aquila Coal Mine in Bundoora, 302km northwest of Rockhampton.

“We have been progressively increasing the number of permanent roles across all of our steelmaking coal operations in Queensland including at [the] Aquila mine, which has also announced the creation of around 70 new permanent positions,” he said.

“Across our other mines we have majority permanent, operational employee workforces and we encourage our people to live locally โ€“ including through rental subsidy programs and other initiatives.”
