About the role

BHP Iron Ore is one of the world's leading suppliers of iron ore. The Company's operations currently involve an integrated system of seven inland mines, more than 1,000 kilometres of rail and two separate port facilities; Nelson Point and Finucane Island at Port Hedland as part of our Western Australian Iron Ore (WAIO) business. BHP celebrates and actively promotes diversity of thought at all levels and strictly adheres to a series of core values outlined in our Company Charter.

Reporting to the Manager Engineering within the Engineering Standards (also referred to as the Governance and Technical Stewardship team) team, this is an exciting opportunity for a high performing professional to lead a diverse team in managing and ensuring compliance to Engineering and Technical standards for the site including structural, civil, mechanical, electrical and control systems.

Providing support and governance on site systems and strategies, as the Engineering Technical Superintendent, you will ensure robust change control and document management processes exist, and are followed, for the Operation.  

Other Key Accountabilities will include,

  • Demonstrate leadership and instil an overriding commitment to health, safety, environment responsibility and sustainable development
  • Demonstrate in-depth understanding of Critical Controls, ensure suitable controls are in place and verified through a planned audit process
  • Ensure deep technical engineering subject matter expertise and consultative support is provided to the Operation

Working in a proactive business culture and with a supportive management structure, you'll have the chance to promote business excellence through your team and you'll make full use of your broad range of skills in the areas of continuous improvement, technical knowledge and communication.

About you

To be successful in this role you will have a Tertiary qualification in Engineering and bring a detailed knowledge of theories and practices related to Engineering Standards & Change Control. You will be a seasoned professional with a passion for guiding, developing and influencing teams and individual team members through mentoring and coaching.

We value diversity in experience and your career history will testify to your ability to demonstrate strong critical reasoning skills, grasp technical problems and learn complex theories and concepts. Energetic and driven, with a strong understanding of safe operations and safe behaviour fundamentals you work well under pressure bringing a high attention to detail and the consistent ability to meet multiple deadlines.

Your technical strengths will be complemented by excellent engagement and communication skills. Proactive, credible and influential, you relate well with people, communicating confidently and building strong working relationships with key stakeholders.
