About the role

12 months ago, the Coal business created the Integrated Remote Operating Centre (IROC) in the Brisbane CBD. The IROC was built to rapidly drive the Safety, Productivity and Culture agenda for Coal by leveraging excellence in control and Asset level improvement (Mine, Plant, Logistics and Port).

To date this has been a huge success and we are now ready to turn the dial up.

The role of Manager Asset & Control Improvement will work hand in hand with the rest of the IROC and BMA Integrated Operations leadership team to achieve this. The team's success is delivered through great people who will deliver the improvement agenda across both IROC and the Asset in support of achieving the Safety, Productivity and Cultural outcomes.
