At First Quantum, we free the talent of our people by taking a very different approach which is underpinned by a very different, very definite culture – the “First Quantum Way”.
Working with us is not like working anywhere else, which is why we recruit people who will take a bolder, smarter approach to spot opportunities, solve problems and deliver results.
Our culture is all about encouraging you to think independently and to challenge convention to deliver the best result. That’s how we continue to achieve extraordinary things in extraordinary locations.
First Quantum Minerals is a rapidly growing global mining group with a strong production base in Africa, Australia and Europe as well as series of substantial new development projects in Latin America.
The company maintains an extensive exploration strategy consistent with its ambitious project development pipeline and needs motivated and resilient geoscientists to realise its goals
First Quantum Minerals is seeking top geoscience candidates to apply for our Graduate Programme. The Graduate Program seeks to select and train highly capable geoscientists in a two year accelerated development programme which will take you through a series of placements into exploration and production situations around the world. Successful candidates will work on a variety of deposit types and environments, receiving the necessary training and mentoring to take on early responsibility in their career.
Successful candidates will have:
Responsibilities will include:
Discovery of critical mineral resources is getting harder, we need the best and brightest to push the boundaries of science and teamwork in the remotest places on Earth. Whilst we operate several small exploration offices in Latin America, Australia and Africa many of our global geoscientists work remotely for 4 to 8 weeks at a time in isolated locations. We expect and give flexibility around a nominal 6-on, 2-off ratio, from your nominated base. To cope with this career, you need to love travel, working with different cultures and be capable of operating at times as part of a ‘virtual team’ communicating, learning and sharing by whatever communication means are available. We give back by helping you to build your career experience through mentoring, mine visits, technical workshops and conferences, as well as a competitive remuneration package.
