High volume recruitment in the mining sector
Programmed was engaged by our customer to manage the end-to-end recruitment of 180 dump truck operators (DTOs) and deliver them to site over an 11-week period.
Programmed was responsible for all aspects of the recruitment process, from the selection of candidates through to their placement on-site. Programmed was asked to source, screen, interview, verify qualifications, perform medical assessments, coordinate travel arrangements and induct all 180 DTOs.
We were also required to mobilise them quickly and conduct a rigorous sourcing campaign, which received 1,500 applications and required 250 interviews and 200 medical assessments.
We conducted an initial planning workshop with our customer to address requirements, time frames, expectations and communication methods and establish the parameters for a successful working relationship.
The following elements were central to the successful implementation and execution of this high-volume recruitment drive:
Programmed successfully placed all 180 DTOs on-site within the required time frames, which exceeded our customer’s expectations.
The recruitment model that we developed specifically to meet our customer’s initial high-volume recruitment needs continues to be used today. This demonstrates its effectiveness in the ongoing delivery of successful high-volume recruitment outcomes.
