The success of our business is driven by people who embrace and champion the Byrnecut pillars; People, Safety, Innovation and Results. We seek to employ Graduates who share these values and are passionate about being in an industry full of opportunity, with a diverse community of talent.

Serious about Safety
For us, our commitment to safety is paramount to the success of Byrnecut. Working in a high-risk industry, constant appraisal of our comprehensive health and safety processes is essential to ensure our workers go home safe every day.

We’re Bound by a Great Workplace Culture
We are proud of the camaraderie that has been engrained in the company since its establishment. We see first-hand that when work is driven by a culture of trust and collaboration, the sky is the limit.

Being at the Forefront of Innovative Mining Solutions
We invest in new technologies for mine development (in particular, mechanisation and automation) and work closely with clients and suppliers to improve underground operating practice and technology, which has in some instances influenced an industry standard.

We Embrace Diversity & Inclusion
Byrnecut is an equal opportunity employer, committed to building a culture of inclusion and proud to be diverse. We develop relevant and targeted training and business activities to ensure the broad spectrum of needs are met.

Work Locations
Our site-based program means you will be working on a Fly In/Fly Out (FIFO) basis at one of our operations across Australia. Working FIFO involves flying to a mine site to work for a fixed period of time, before flying home for a fixed period of rest and relaxation.
