Roy Hill is an Equal Opportunity Employer and encourages indigenous Australians and females to apply. We promote cultural diversity, gender equality and non- discrimination.

To be eligible to apply for this role you must be legally permitted to work permanently in Australia.

The WA Government announced in October that it will soon be mandatory for all people who attend a mine site, oil or gas facility or remote operations centre (ROC) to be vaccinated against COVID-19, including all visitors to these sites.
The new directions aim to address the risks posed by the movement of resources sector workers to and from regional and remote locations in the State, with many mine sites located at or near remote Aboriginal communities. The mandate will also safeguard mining operations in recognition of the sector’s importance to our state and country.

Roy Hill requires all employees who will be working at or visiting an operational site, including the Perth Control Room to have their first COVID-19 vaccination by 1 December and be fully vaccinated from 1 January 2022. Please consider this requirement when submitting your application.

Employees will be required to provide evidence of their COVID-19 vaccination history prior to commencing employment with the company.

Please note that unsolicited applications from recruitment agencies will not be accepted.
