Electrical Engineer

  • Grasstree Rd, Queensland, Australia
  • Full-time

Company Description

Our Capcoal Underground Operation currently has a vacancy within its Engineering and Maintenance Department for an Electrical Engineer.

You put safety first.  That’s why we want you.

Safe. Smart. Sustainable. Probably not the first words you typically associate with mining. But Anglo American is not your typical mining company.

Guided by our purpose and our values, we enable both high performance and purposeful action as we aim to “re-imagine mining to improve people’s lives", delivering the metals and minerals that make modern life possible – from mobile phones to medicines.

Safety first is a way of life for us.  We are unconditional about the safety, health and well-being of our colleagues, at work and at home, and about that of the communities where we work. We aim to lead the industry by investing in innovation to protect people, who are at the heart of our business. Our high performing teams take accountability for their own and others' actions, work collaboratively, and always show care and respect. 

MetCoal Australia
