Maintenance Technician

Platinum Blasting Services is an expanding blasting services company, with a vision to become a domestic leader in the commercial explosives industry. Safe and efficient blasting operations are integral to Platinum’s success, as is providing quality explosive products and blast services to our clients.

Due to the recent growth of our fleet and with the construction of our new Moranbah Emulsion Plant underway, we are seeking an additional Maintenance Technician to support our fleet of Mobile Processing Units (MPU’s) and ancillary equipment based across various mine sites within the Bowen Basin. The role may also provide maintenance support to the emulsion plant in Moranbah.

The successful candidate will be self-motivated, reliable and flexible, with a hands on approach to carrying out general maintenance tasks. Your prior experience in a similar role will be underpinned by a mechanical or electrical trade qualification. Experience within the blasting and/or explosives manufacturing industries, especially Volvo and IEE trucks, will be considered favourably.

The position is expected to be engaged on a week on, week off basis (with the possibility of some flexibility around roster if required for the right candidate). It is preferable that you live locally within the greater Central Queensland, Mackay or Rockhampton region.

At Platinum Blasting our vision, values and customer focus drive everything we do. We know our people are our strongest asset. Our people value working relationships, use their initiative and can spot opportunities to add value. If this describes you, then apply today to join the Platinum team.
