The detail

Whether you’re looking to fill one position or recruit an entire top team, we can help you find the best possible candidates for your mining executive jobs.

We focus on knowing rather than searching. Whilst many mining headhunters will take your brief and begin their search from scratch, the fact is we are probably already talking with the ideal candidate.

This is because we develop long term relationships with the best mining talent out there. We keep in touch with them even when they are not actively looking for roles, so when the ideal position crops up, we can quickly identify a perfect match.

This means you get a shortlist of top tier candidates in days not weeks, reducing risk and costs.

And with 80% of our shortlisted candidates being invited for interview you can be sure they'll be closely matched to your needs too. 

Clients engaging Stratum on a retained basis get exclusive access to TalentAssay™ powered by i-intro®. This award winning, innovative candidate assessment and delivery platform incorporates role-specific competence frameworks developed by our Partners and Consultants. TalentAssay™ is so reliable it achieves retention rates of 96% over 12 months and is backed by a one-year guarantee.


Our networks and expertise, built on years of experience, are particularly strong in the following areas:

Project Development

Mine Operations

Where a role falls outside of these core areas, we can still help. We use a range of powerful search tools and personal recommendations from our extensive network to uncover talent no one else will find.

Unlike standard mining recruitment agencies or generalist recruiters with a mining desk, we have devoted our energies to developing three key pillars of our service:

  1. A simple, yet unique methodology which means that we’re already likely to be talking to the talent you need.
  2. An extensive, carefully selected and proactively managed network of top tier mining talent, supported by the number one global group for mining professionals on LinkedIn.
  3. A deep rooted understanding of the mining industry based on personal site experience and underpinned with our own primary industry research.

Working with Stratum you can be assured we will find the best possible match for your position.  And you only pay us when we’ve successfully filled your role.

Our support doesn’t end once the executive has started work. We’ll keep in touch with them and with you to ensure success is sustained.
