Project Manager – Operational Role in Underground Coal Mining
Are you a driven underground coal mining professional who wants a challenge?
As an operational Project Manager, you will be in charge of the mining operations for an established underground contractor. Your work will primarily involve development, but the scope can range far and wide dependent upon the client’s needs at the time. You will have a decent size team of more than 100 including a small management team, as well as several Production Coordinators and ERZ Controllers.
Your role may sound deceptively simple, but it certainly is not easy.
- Keep everyone safe and comply with statutory and client policies.
- Keep the client happy, meet KPI’s and work with them to achieve everyone’s goals.
- Make money – manage the costs, keep the equipment running at peak performance, pick up extra work, & submit all the right reports accurately & in a timely manner so they get paid.
- Lead the team. Set standards, hold people accountable, encourage, coach, collaborate, be fair yet tough when it is called for.
- Manage the job – by organizing the team, using your knowledge / expertise to solve problems, and ensuring that top management visit your project because they want to, not because they have to fix something you aren’t doing, and demonstrate effective leadership in everything you do.
If you deliver on the above list, you will be well compensated and have the potential for other rewards which can be discussed at interview.
Obviously, you will need to have experience in underground coal extraction in a leadership position. They are equally happy to see people who have degrees or not. Statutory qualifications at least at a deputy / ERZ controller are desirable, but not essential. Apart from that, if you can safely hit targets, manage a client, and have a business head not just a production focus, then you are probably of a like mind to us and would fit right in. They run a business, not a mine and need someone like you who thinks the same way.
This is a Mon-Fri role (in theory) so you would need to live residential, or you could Drive in/Drive out a short distance (your safety being paramount) at the end of each week. The town is well facilitated with both rural and mining industries so you can build a social life and friends outside of your workplace.

Resources and Infrastructure Industry (RII)
Commonly refered to as Black Coal Competency (BCC), the RII competency is one that can be attained by an operator who has previously worked in the industry and has completed a number of operating hours on various types of machinery.
RII competency is granted to prove correct and safe operation of mine site machinery. It is a very useful qualification to have, as it confirms the operator has the required experience and expertise.
You can transfer your nationally recognised civil Excavator, Front End Loader or Dozer tickets only to RII Black Coal Competencies.
