Minerals and metals are essential for modern living. Among other things, they enable farming, healthcare, communications, water and energy supply, transport, space technology and the construction of our cities.

Investments in natural resources do not always lead to positive social and economic outcomes for human wellbeing, our planet, or the prosperity of host communities and nations. This does not have to be the case; when mining and metals companies act responsibly, the extraction and management of natural resources can be transformative for the lives of employees, their families, local communities and entire nations.

Bringing together 27 mining and metals company members and over 35 national, regional and commodity association members, ICMM has a truly global reach, and uses this platform to strengthen the social and environmental performance of the mining and metals industry while building recognition of its contribution to local communities and society at large.

About this role:

We are looking for a Health & Safety specialist to join ICMM's innovation team as the organisation embarks on a new three-year strategy. You will work with members, OEMs, technology suppliers, civil society, international organisations and other external stakeholders to develop and implement a step-change in health and safety performance for the mining and metals sector.

As the team's Health & Safety Specialist, you will lead ICMM's working group on health and safety with the objective of taking a material step-up in the industry's collective efforts to eliminate the harm to human life from mining and processing operations.

You will have the opportunity to:

  • Engage key stakeholders to scope and develop a clear leadership role for the industry, as well as support ICMM's working groups in the Innovation for Cleaner, Safety Vehicle Initiative (ICSV) on minimising diesel particle matter (DPM) in underground operations, promoting collision avoidance solutions and on zero-emissions solutions for surface mining transportation

  • Facilitate workshops, peer-to-peer exchange and multi-stakeholders to forums across all aspects on health and safety

  • Develop external relationships and partnerships to build awareness and champion improved performance in the wider sector and value chain

  • Measure and monitor the progress of project delivery

Working within ICMM's matrix structure, you will have the opportunity to actively engage in other aspects of the broader ICMM work programme, applying your unique experience and expertise to strengthen the industry's contribution to the sustainable development agenda.

About you:

You will share ICMMs passion for sustainability, have strong experience in managing collaborative efforts on occupational health and safety, ideally within a consultancy, company, government, civil society or association.

You will have a good working knowledge of the extractives industry and experience working in or with corporate businesses across the areas of health and safety.

You will also be adaptable, creative and a strategic thinker who can move from planning to implementation with ease. A strong team player and influencer, you will have excellent interpersonal, communication and engagement skills, with the ability to build, maintain and leverage relationships both internally and across multiple external stakeholder groups.

Have we piqued your interest?

ICMM's approach is anchored in collaboration, bringing together industry and broader stakeholders such as investors, suppliers, communities, Indigenous Peoples, academia, and civil society to achieve their vision of a safe, just and sustainable world, enabled by responsibly produced minerals and metals.

Apply below if you're motivated by the thought of helping ICMM continue to drive real, meaningful change in the metals and mining industry. If you have any questions, please contact Samantha Calvey at samantha.calvey@acre.com.

This role, and all roles at ICMM, are open to candidates from any and all geographic regions.
