Volume Hiring for Lab Technicians// Mining

We have been working for the client for over a decade. They play a vital role in the global mining industry by providing testing, inspection and certification services to large scale mining companies.


Our client delivers their services to other companies. Following several urgent requests from big industry names, they needed help in finding 10 highly skilled lab technicians for mineral processing project work in a short time frame. The client does not have the ability to find and qualify scientific candidates at such short notice due to the local market and lack of active job seekers.


Applying our technical knowledge: Throughout our relationship we have delivered large numbers of Lab Technicians with very specific technical capabilities to the client and were once again able to leverage this knowledge to steer our market search. Some of the key skillsets required included candidates with geotechnical and inorganic analysis experience, as well as solid XRF and XRD instrumentation experience.

Comprehensive candidate qualification: We apply in-depth pre-screening techniques to ensure that only the highest calibre of personnel are put forward for a first stage interview.

Leveraging our local networks: All the people we placed are local to the South Australia market.

Unrivalled candidate care: we treat the candidates as if they are employees of Evolve, taking care of all practical logistics to ensure everyone is supported and can do the job properly - from ensuring they have a valid visa / work permit in place, to orchestrating their vaccinations, pre-employment medical check-ups and competency assessments.


Our market knowledge, capacity to place volume numbers of staff and ability to act with pace means we are now the client’s preferred supplier for their technical and scientific roles.

At their staffing peak, we placed over 20 key technical contractors and lab technicians in just under 10 days.
