Gold Fields offers endless opportunities across our four mining operations with a centrally located support office based in Perth, Western Australia. Our Australian assets include prosperous and long life underground and open pit operations. Career opportunities are plentiful across many disciplines which could include mining, processing, geology, engineering, sustainable development or human resources.

Our employees are by far our most important asset and wherever possible, we will promote internally as a priority measure. Internal development is supported by our robust talent management systems and processes. Developing and fostering opportunities is not restricted to our current business leaders but is extended to our broader workforce.

Every employee works alongside their manager to design a tailor-made individual development plan which will assist employees to achieve their career goals during their journey at Gold Fields. Secondments, parallel career transitions and other stretch opportunities are offered as further development opportunities. Mentoring and coaching is also offered to employees who wish to enhance their skills and capabilities whilst working at Gold Fields.
