Welcome to the Employment Page for the Kanmantoo Copper Mine!

Contrary to what you might see in the media, Kanmantoo is a small operation with a limited number of skilled roles available at any one time listed on our portal below that we are recruiting for.   Due to our excellent location and high responses we do not utilise recruitment agencies so please apply directly if you see an ad here or on Seek.  For further details please read on.
We are a relatively small and unusual project by South Australian standards, with approximately 200 personnel staffing the mine and no Fly In / Fly Out or related accommodation and catering.  This is because we are located in a highly populated area, with staff coming from the local townships, beautiful Adelaide Hills, or choosing to live in the city or by the beach. Kanmantoo presents a unique opportunity rarely seen within the resources sector - an opportunity for applicants seeking to establish a balance between their work and personal commitments, who wish to become part of an energetic and committed team.  

For any roles posted on our portal we will welcome applications from enthusiastic top-performers, with the requisite skills and experience that are ready to go to the next level in their careers.  With a ‘Local-Hire’ policy applying to the Kanmantoo Copper Mine, you must live nearby or be prepared to relocate (at your own expense) to the area to be considered for employment. We strongly believe in forming direct relationships with our local community and providing opportunities when possible.

Graduate/Vocational/Apprentice Programs

We offer limited Graduate and Vocational opportunities in Mine Geology and Mine Engineering, and Apprenticeship opportunities in Mechanical Fitting and Electrical. When placements become available at the Kanmantoo Copper Mine we will advertise them on our website portal.  So if you are interested regularly check our 'Apply Online' link under Current Vacancies above.

As a precursor, graduate students from Adelaide universities are encouraged to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) regarding research projects they may wish to undertake in relation to the Mine.  Each EOI will be reviewed on a case by case basis to determine merit, relevance to the site and availability of Hillgrove staff to assist in the project.

Secondary school approved work experience submissions will be assessed on the merits of their application.  Whilst work experience placements may not be possible at times due to operational limitations, efforts will be made to assist students wherever possible. General work experience placements (i.e. non-school based placements) are not provided on site.
