The Benefits

  • Sick of long rosters? This role will see you working a 7 on 7 off roster, truly equal time.
  • Tired of the working in the seemingly never-ending Pilbara heat? Boddington has an average summer temperature of 32.
  • Is it time to balance work and everything else that is important to you in life? For many of our employees, the drive to site takes less time, than the wait at the airport.

You will be responsible for the maintenance and servicing of NBG's Heavy Mobile Equipment Fleet in a safe and efficient manner, maximising the amount of scheduled maintenance and minimising the impact of unscheduled maintenance.


Your skills in fault finding and diagnostics, repairs and preventive maintenance services, component repair and refurbishment, CAT SIS and VIMS experience will be highly regarded.
