Our operational journey in Australia / 02:58


Our cutting-edge business opens doors for our people by providing a work environment that is autonomous, supportive and challenging, where you will work alongside some of the best in the industry.

From rail drivers and project engineers, to geologists and diamond graders, electricians, diesel mechanics, hydrologists and engineering specialists, there are myriad opportunities at Rio Tinto.

Our employees play a key role in supplying the world with natural resources we all need for modern living. They drive 580-tonne trucks and excavators, haul loads of ore by rail and sea and engineer billion dollar projects that employ thousands of people and help build communities.

Our operations

We have enriched Australian life for more than 100 years and today is home to almost half of our global assets. We produce iron ore, coal, bauxite, alumina, aluminium, uranium, copper, gold, diamonds and salt, with offices in Perth, Melbourne and Brisbane.

By joining our team you can choose to be a part of our diverse operations where there is something suited to every lifestyle.

In the Pilbara region of Western Australia, we operate a world-class, integrated network of 15 iron ore mines, three port facilities and a 1,500 kilometre rail network. As our iron ore business continues to grow, we will be deploying the world’s largest fleet of automated trucks to coincide with our plans to lift current capacity by more than 20 per cent.

Rio Tinto Aluminium is one of the world’s largest producers of bauxite, alumina and aluminium, operating in Queensland since the mid-1950s. We currently have two large capital projects planned or underway – the Yarwun alumina refinery expansion and the South of Embley Project.

We offer a range of flexible fly in fly out (FIFO) rosters or residential living in remote family-friendly communities.

Our commitment

From our mining operations to our support of communities, everything we do is with the future firmly in mind. We are committed to safety, sustainability and building a strong diverse workforce and are proud to be the largest private sector employer of Indigenous Australians.

We let you think outside the box, take on new challenges and work alongside likeminded people. We invite you to inspire and be inspired by those around you. We welcome you to join us on our journey and discover the possibilities.
