How do I become an OZ Minerals employee with no mining experience?

It’s not easy! We recommend you research our company and understand the culture of our organisation. Research what qualifications and skills you need to fulfil the roles. Position descriptions are attached to all vacant positions. To apply for roles with OZ Minerals, you do not need to apply for a police clearance or undergo a medical as this is part of our recruitment process.

How many women work for OZ Minerals?

We have many women working in both our corporate offices and our sites. We aim to have 25% females working at all levels within our organisation at all sites. As we have women working in non-traditional female roles, our sites cater for both male and female.

We strongly encourage you to visit the current vacancies section of our website. To register your details, attach your resume and set up a job alert which will send you an email once a position becomes available.
