We believe that the traditional mining recruitment model is fundamentally flawed – often taking months to find suitable candidates for business-critical roles while adding little value along the way.

We do things differently. 

Our proactive approach to mining talent identification is a daily process, which we undertake regardless of active assignments. Only by consistently meeting with the top talent in the mining industry and keeping in touch throughout their careers are we able to develop the deep and trusting relationships that differentiate Stratum International from less focused mining recruitment firms. 

This means we are able to shortlist pre-interviewed and pre-referenced mining professionals in a matter of days not weeks.

Put simply, we aim to know the people that you need before you know you need them.



Our involvement doesn't end once an appointment has been made. We continue to monitor and review the success of every placement to ensure clients get the measurable results they're looking for and candidates are fully onboard and up to speed.

Whatever your mining recruitment requirements, our rigorous assessments, referencing and post-placement feedback helps to ensure a positive outcome and reduce hiring risk.

Our aim is to continue to support clients through access to industry intelligence and original research. Through our real-time market data, candidates and clients benefit from unrivalled insight and analysis on the current state of the mining job market.
