Why Work Here

We are going places.  Our strategy focuses on doubling the value of the business by 2024 and to achieve this, we are seeking the brightest minds in our industry to join us – those who value collaboration, innovation, and teamwork to drive positive solutions.

Those who are new to mining may not realise the cutting-edge nature of our industry. Modern mining presents a host of new technologies and opportunities – from autonomous vehicles, to data mining and the use of artificial intelligence in predictive modelling. Our industry is very tactile, and we put our sizeable resources and equipment to use in a way that is safe, sustainable and contributes to communities and economies in a positive and enduring way.

Our challenge is to find the best ways to improve our operations through new or adapted systems, processes and technologies and doing so in a way which delivers on our purpose.

Exciting career experiences lie ahead – new operations, technologies, and business opportunities. Guided by our values and our focus on our employees’ wellbeing, we’ll meet and overcome these challenges with the contribution of our amazing team.


Our employee benefits are competitive within our industry. However, there is one benefit that can’t be measured or matched, and that’s our culture. The experience of working with leaders and executives committed to a constructive culture that drives employees to achieve and advance, and contribute to a positive legacy every day.

An Equal Opportunity Employer

OceanaGold is proud to be an Equal Employment Opportunity Employer. We do not discriminate based on race, religion, colour, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, veteran status, disability status or any other applicable characteristics protected by law. We celebrate diversity and recognise the extraordinary value, insight, and innovation it delivers, and the connectivity it creates with the communities we live and operate in.

Career Areas and Progression

There are opportunities across every area of our business for professionals who are ready to develop their skills and help us change and innovate our industry. We believe successful and rewarding careers are a combination of effort and performance; learning agility and self-awareness; coaching and support; and grit.

At OceanaGold we invest in careers to develop the experience and capability required to support individual development. Aligning career aspirations and unique skill sets with operational requirements recognises the mutual value to both the employee and employer. Not all employees wish to become a manager or leader, some aspire to be the best they can in their chosen field. We understand what roles and tasks are critical to our business strategy and focus employee development opportunities to align with our strategy delivery.

As a multinational employer, we provide domestic and international opportunities for growth, and the opportunity to work with other cultures and teams from around the globe.

Our Culture

OceanaGold’s culture, encapsulated in a single word, is constructive. We value our culture every day and invest in it in multiple ways. It is underpinned by our values and brought to life every day through our collective vision, actions, and attitudes.

What does this mean in practice? It means we strive to provide opportunities at every level of the organisation to contribute, be encouraged and supported, be rewarded for exceptional work, and to develop and make work relationships worth keeping for life.

We are nimble enough to want to try new things, and innovative and ambitious enough to do so. We do what we say and respect our employees to do the same. Most of all, we focus on results – together. We believe in teamwork and our annual incentive program is underpinned by the collective effort of our employees to work together to deliver superior results, safely.
