The Advertiser - Careers - - Front Page -

Ara­fura has em­barked upon es­tab­lish­ing min­ing in­fra­struc­ture in the North­ern Ter­ri­tory and a tech­no­log­i­cally ad­vanced Rare Earths com­plex in Whyalla. The op­er­a­tion is ex­pected to sup­ply about 10 per cent of the world’s de­mand for rare earth el­e­ments, pro­duc­ing 20,000 tonnes a year when it be­gins pro­duc­tion in 2013. Lo­cated in Whyalla, this po­si­tion is the first role to be cre­ated for the site with the prime ob­jec­tive of co­or­di­nat­ing the ini­tial EHS ac­tiv­i­ties on site and in the sur­round­ing area lead­ing up to con­struc­tion and ul­ti­mately pro­duc­tion. The po­si­tion will evolve as the devel­op­ment of the site pro­gresses and this will in­clude the in­ter­face with reg­u­la­tors and man­age­ment of con­sul­tants and contractors con­duct­ing work con­sis­tent with de­liv­ery of a com­pli­ant EIS. Dur­ing the ini­tial phases of site es­tab­lish­ment and devel­op­ment the in­cum­bent will be re­spon­si­ble for all site co­or­di­na­tion ac­tiv­i­ties and will be the prime Whyalla con­tact for the busi­ness and Ara­fura’s lo­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tive. As the site devel­op­ment pro­gresses the site co­or­di­na­tion part of the role will re­duce and the to­tal fo­cus will be upon the EHS per­for­mance and im­prove­ment. To be suc­cess­ful for this role it is en­vis­aged that ap­pli­cants should have a min­i­mum of five years ex­pe­ri­ence within a re­lated in­dus­try. Ex­pe­ri­ence in the chem­i­cal in­dus­try, prepa­ra­tion of an EIS and fa­mil­iar­ity with ma­rine en­vi­ron­ments will be highly re­garded. Ap­pro­pri­ate ter­tiary qualifications and a de­tailed knowl­edge of the reg­u­la­tory land­scape within SA are con­sid­ered im­por­tant.

Ap­pli­ca­tions close 5pm, Fri­day 19 Novem­ber 2010.
