Opening Mining Careers
AmcoGiffen, in partnership with ICL Boulby, is launching an exciting new training and development programme, providing trainee mining opportunities for the local community.
The specialist training and development programme will be based at ICL Boulby in Cleveland. It will be delivered jointly by expert teams from ICL Boulby and maintenance contractor, AmcoGiffen. The course is designed to attract local talent from diverse backgrounds into the modern mining industry. Trainees will receive practical on the job training and competence coaching.
The aim to create an extended rolling programme as more candidates pass through the training stages.
The collaboration between AmcoGiffen and ICL Boulby to recruit, train and develop a team of trainee infrastructure miners is building on a long standing partnership. A prominent employer to the local community, ICL Boulby is unique in that it is the only place in the world where the Polyhalite mineral is mined. AmcoGiffen provides the specialist maintenance and asset improvement work to keep ICL Boulby in operation.
“I’m really excited about this programme and what it brings to the community. At ICL, we pride ourselves on the strength of our local presence and the people we employ are a big part of our continued success. Joining forces with AmcoGiffen provides a fantastic opportunity for candidates to learn from each other, whilst also learning from the experts at AmcoGiffen and channelling that knowledge and enthusiasm into a rewarding career here at ICL Boulby.”
Tom Peach, Recruitment Manager at AmcoGiffen said: This is the first scheme of this kind that we’ve developed with a partner and we’re looking forward to seeing some optimistic outcomes. The opportunity welcomes a diverse range of applicants. Trainees will gain a positive experience in the industry and develop valuable skills, securing a future for themselves and the protecting the future of mining.”
