Southern Africa

Competitive package

My client, an international gold mining company currently growing both through cross border acquisition and project development currently seeks a new General Manager for one of their subsidiaries which contains an underground mine and multiple near-term projects.

The mining property in question has vast potential to be unlocked as it enters a phase of intense development.  This could be described as a turn-around situation meaning that the new GM must bring their prior experience to identify opportunities for immediate change & development across all functions.

Leading a large team & reporting to COO, the GM will lead managers across multiple functions including plant operations, geology, administration and mining contractors. Key responsibilities will include:

  • ·         Being ultimately responsible for all in country operations.
  • ·         Increasing productivity and exceeding commercial objectives set by the board.
  • ·         Decreasing cost of production while maintaining high HSE standards.
  • ·         Taking a lead on planning and scheduling.
  • ·         Co-ordinating contractors and mining partners.
  • ·         Employee relations, training and human resources management.
  • ·         Cash flow monitoring in partnership with the company Chief Financial Officer.


The successful candidate will be an experienced GM of Operations from the gold industry. Experience of underground mining would be beneficial.

This is a residential opportunity in a pleasant part of Southern Africa with housing, share options and medical included in the package.
