Training and Development

The Company will recruit and train a local workforce around a core team of specialist and experienced personnel. Most positions, including electricians or mechanical fitters for example, will not necessarily need experience specific to the mining industry.

A significant proportion of mine operatives (miners) will not need any previous mining experience. They will be selected based on transferable skills and aptitudes and could be trained on the job. All staff will receive ongoing training to gain recognised qualifications relevant to their roles to support their progression through the Company.

We are committed to providing new routes into our employment and extending our local workforce by creating apprenticeships, the continuation of our undergraduate trainee programme and training at least 300 adults with transferrable skills in preparation for roles in operations.
