Brisbane jobs go
Tuesday 27 May 2014  

BRAZILIAN miner Vale is calling for voluntary redundancies at its Australian headquarters in Brisbane.

The memo to staff was sent out after the company announced it would mothball its Integra underground coal mine in New South Wales, putting 500 miners out of work.

“Vale is now undertaking a review of the Brisbane support structure with the objective of more appropriately aligning its size with the size of the Australian operations,” the Human Resources memo reads.

“As part of this review, Vale is undertaking an expression of interest process aimed at identifying the level of interest from employees in participating in a voluntary redundancy scheme.”

About 130 people are employed at Vale’s offices in Brisbane’s CBD, and Shift Miner understands about 15 of the company’s senior management are currently on a fly-in fly-out rotation in Mozambique, looking after Vale’s mining interests in Africa.

It’s also understood the company’s Carborough Downs and Isaac Plains mines, in the Bowen Basin, are also at risk of closure.
