Kaunis Iron is developing the world’s most sustainable iron ore and we are on the lookout for a Senior Strategic Mine Planner.

We dare to say that we are different. We are the mine of the new generation with a focus on every aspect of sustainability – environment, economy, community and the individual. We have an engaged team who share our values, a team without baggage who together are blazing their own trails and writing their own story - a team where engagement, curiosity and respect are at the heart of everything we do.

We are a small Company with a global reach. Our unique, high quality iron concentrate is in strong demand amongst the world’s steelworks. Our vision is to produce the world’s most sustainable iron ore. Do you want to be part of us?

You will play a key part of the next stage of the Company, an exciting time when we open two new mines.

You will work closely with the management team and play a pivotal role in developing the Company’s vision. Your role will include developing our business and keeping an eye on possible opportunities that the Company can strategically capitalise on.

The Position

As the responsible Strategic Mine Planner, you will lead the group in the department that works with mine planning and have the overall responsibility for all planning, both long and short-term, as well as drilling and blasting planning. The position is a key position for Kaunis Iron's future development and strategic work and involves close collaboration with the Company's management team.

You will play a main role in our work to develop mining alternatives for a long-term Life of Mine Plan. Your work will include quality assurance around the data and calculations that form the basis for our mineral reserve and associated reporting according to PERC (The Pan European Reserves and Resources Reporting Committee Code for Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves).

An important part of the job will be to support, involve and share knowledge with your colleagues.

You will be part of the Planning Department team, which is responsible for the Company's short and long-term mining planning, surveying, geology and grade control. As with all mining-related work, this means that you will operate in an area under constant change that places high demands on safety and safety awareness. Our operations are conducted in the mining area in Kaunisvaara, which is where the position will be based. The position will report into the Mine Planning Manager.

Qualifications and Education

Experience of long-term mine planning, open pit optimization and open pit design is a requirement. You will have at least 5-8 years of experience within the mining industry.

We are looking for university graduates within mining or rock engineering. Having the ability to manage Microsoft Office programs, Deswik or other mining planning software is a must and other CAD programs, as well as Leapfrog, are an advantage.

Personal Characteristics

You are a grounded, logical thinker with integrity and clarity of thought, self-assured with the ability to motivate your position when it matters, however your key focus is always on joint problem solving.

You are energetic with the ability to collate, consider and evaluate different streams of information. You manage complex issues well by analysing and solving problems. You are well aware of the goals and quality standards and attach great importance in meeting these.

You take responsibility for your tasks and you structure, plan, involve and share your skills.
