Support and the friends to provide it

As an OZ Minerals graduate, you will be uniquely placed to build on your technical, planning and people management skills with a team of professionals committed to developing your professional knowledge and experience.
OZ Minerals’ success is driven by a motivated and social culture where diversity is both appreciated and expected. We strongly believe bringing together people of different ages and cultural backgrounds leads to a more productive, friendly and inclusive workplace. We want to attract people who are proud to work as part of a diverse and inclusive workforce.
We currently have around 20 percent women across all job levels and have set measurable targets to increase our female representation within our workforce.
As part of our commitment to diversity, the Company has a continuing focus on providing employment opportunities for Aboriginal people. There are currently approximately 110 Aboriginal people working at Prominent Hill – one of the highest representations of Aboriginal people within Australian mining workforces.
OZ Minerals runs a two-day cross cultural awareness program for all Prominent Hill employees, including contractors. The program is run by traditional owners of the land, the Antakarinja Aboriginal group. It focuses on educating people about Aboriginal culture, particularly Antakarinja culture, including their beliefs, connection to the land and areas of cultural significance. It also explores Aboriginal ways of life and the challenges that persist. The program has been an important part of creating an inclusive, supportive culture at Prominent Hill.
How We Work Together - innovating, leading, collaborating, delivering, taking action and engaging - is integral to the way we do business and underpins everything we do at OZ Minerals.
We want to attract and keep good people and offer a range of rewards and benefits to our employees. We offer our employees the possibility of flexible working hours, part-time work, annual leave at half pay (i.e. double the amount of leave), paid parental leave, carer’s leave, job sharing and telecommuting.

We understand that family support is of crucial importance to many of our employees and we hold regular family days to allow partners and family members to experience mine site life.
OZ Minerals is committed to achieving Zero Harm by Choice. This means we adopt targets of zero for health, safety, environmental and community incidents.
