We welcome employment interest at our corporate office located in Perth’s CBD.

By choosing a career with Gold Fields, you are not only investing in your future but paving the way to opportunities to grow and develop skills across our many operations.

The career development of our employees is a priority. During the recruitment process, internal candidates are given priority consideration and hence, we will always seek to fill positions internally wherever we can.

We are proud to offer industry competitive salaries and an array of employee benefits including:

Site Allowance

If you work a fully site based or residential roster you are entitled to a taxable Site Allowance of 6% of your base salary. This is paid monthly and continued while you are on paid leave (but not unpaid leave), and it attracts superannuation. It ends upon taking up a Perth based role, and is capped at $13,200 for D+ Band employees.

Health Insurance Allowance

All permanent employees are eligible for a fixed Private Health Insurance Allowance upon provision of proof of Private Health Insurance membership. Different allowances are offered to couples/families and singles.

Generous annual or quarterly bonuses are available depending on the employee’s position, in addition to individual and company performance.
