Anyone interested.... and under the current COVID circumstances I guess you’d have to live in WA already sorry...

In a job as a trainee dump truck operator (haulpack driver) at Telfer, in the east Pilbara? It would be for McMahons, the primary contractor for that kind of stuff. Telfer is the second biggest gold mine in Australia. They have recently acquired another significant deposit about 45kms to the east, so life of mine is at least another 15 years.

Be aware, it’s probably close to, if not the hottest mine in Oz... not far from Marble Bar, so summer temps are regularly 45, 46, even 47, and for stretches of days at a time. Summer at the bottom of the pit is rarely under 55.

Camp is a bit ordinary, but there are great people there, and there are far worse places to be.

If interested I’ll find out more for you, pm me or ring me if you know me.

Well you have until 23/10 to get younger and apply like Flynn!

2/1 roster though... a week of days, a week of nights, and a week off. First two days home you’re recovering from night shift, last two days home you’re miserable coz you’re going back to work so you have two or three happy days at home haha!

I’ve just been switched from 15/13 to 8/6... 8 days on better than 15, but then 13 days off FAR better than 6.

I suggested we split the difference from both options and do 8 days on and 13 off for the same pay?

They must be thinking about it coz I haven’t got an answer yet 🤪

Fingers crossed 😇
