Frequently asked questions

Back to Careers

How do I apply for a position with Minara?

The best way is to submit your resume through our online Career Opportunities page. When you have completed the online application process, you will be asked whether you want us to retain your resume for future opportunities. If you agree, your resume is stored in our resume database for a period of 2 years, which is regularly searched by our recruitment team.

Can I fax my application to you?
Unfortunately, we do not accept applications via fax. It is in your interest to apply online so that, subject to your agreement, your application is electronically stored in our resume database. This will allow us to review your application for other opportunities that may come available.
How can I communicate directly with Minara’s Human Resources team or hiring manager?

Due to the high volume of interest in opportunities with our company, it is not realistically possible for our HR Team or hiring managers to liaise with every candidate. A member of our recruitment team will contact you should your skills and experience match one of our opportunities.

I do not have any experience in the mining industry can I still apply?

Whilst experience in the mining industry is desirable for all positions, for some roles your relevant work experience and qualifications will play a more important factor in your application than your mining experience.

If you have neither the relevant work experience nor the mining experience we recommend that you contact an organisation that offers courses and traineeships for individuals who want to gain employment in this industry.

How often are new jobs posted on your website?

We post jobs as they become available. Therefore we recommend you visit our Career Opportunities often and perform a job search.

Can I apply for more than one job at a time?

Yes, you are more than welcome to apply for as many jobs as you like if you feel your skills match the job requirements.

I have applied for a job, what happens next?

Once you have submitted your application online you will receive a confirmation email advising you that we received your application. We will then review your skills and experience, and inform you if your application has been shortlisted. A member of the Recruitment Team will be in contact with you should we wish to progress your application. The recruitment process will generally involve a phone interview in the first instance, followed by a site visit depending on the position, a medical and reference checks. Depending on the role you have applied for further assessments may be part of the process. You will be advised at the time of the interview if this is a requirement.

If you are not successful, subject to your agreement, we will retain your resume in our database for a period of 2 years. Should a future position match your skills and experience we may contact you.
