Case Study - Mining

Souring Experienced Mining Personnel

The Challenge

Our client, a global leader in resources, infrastructure and energy is developing a coal mine in North Queensland. With no panel or suppliers in place to support the rapid development of the project, an urgent need arose to recruit 20 technical white collar roles including Construction Managers, Construction Supervisors, Package Supervisors, Package Engineers, Environmental Specialists, Project Controls and Mine Planners. The client faced a number of problems with the project including the project appeal and was seeking 2-3 recruitment partners with the experience and expertise required to deliver the scope.

The Solution

On the basis of our preferred solution NES Fircroft was chosen as the preferred partner and accordingly was released 20 roles to be recruited over a 5 month period.

With a dedicated Account Manager who had specialist knowledge of the area and mining industry and through regular meetings with the client to update on progress, we were able to overcome key challenges whilst delivering this scope:

  •  Relocation – ensuring candidates understood the requirements and were happy to relocate, the team ensured smooth transitions for each placement.
  • Competitive marketplace – with support from NES integrated searching abilities we were able to find the right talent in a busy industry.
  • Employer brand – we enhanced the client’s employer brand to attract candidates to the scope and developed fact sheets that clearly articulated the scope terms and conditions.

The Results

NES sourced 5 CVs for each role with references. Recognised as the top performing supplier, we successfully filled 9 of 20 roles enabling the client to advance the technical components of the project to the final investment decision stage.
