Opportunities to learn every day. With no limits on personal growth.
Fixed processes and procedures don’t free talent. Flexibility and embracing opportunities to grow all the time do.
At First Quantum there are leadership and technical training initiatives to help you push your management and operational skills as far as you like. But personal development goes way beyond formal training.
To achieve extraordinary things you have to learn and develop in a Bolder, Smarter and more Driven way.
It’s about working together to make sure everyone’s goals are understood and the opportunities are there to achieve them. By learning on the job, throwing yourself into projects outside your comfort zone and soaking up the knowledge of our extraordinary people, you’ll grow more at First Quantum.
Opportunities you’ll want to seize
At First Quantum every day will bring you the opportunity to increase your knowledge and abilities. It might be through working with some of the most driven and talented specialists in their field, or having more access to senior leaders with a track record of delivering significant projects. The better you are, the more rapidly you become involved in bigger projects or be transferred to solve challenges at another site.
Outside encouraging you to seize these opportunities we’ll also work with you, using annual performance appraisals, to plan a personal development programme. But always remember you’ll be expected to initiate your own learning, seeking out new knowledge and skills and developing your own network of experts to learn from.
Specialised learning to develop leadership skills
If you are a manager, supervisor or superintendent, you’ll be encouraged to develop your skills as a leader against what we’ve defined as the Big 6 Skills that every leader will want to master. It’s a programme that’s all about making our Bolder, Smarter, more Driven mission a reality by helping you identify individual strengths and weaknesses against each of the six skills and then giving you the resources to enhance them further.
