Where you will be working

Energy Resources of Australia Ltd (ERA) provides clean energy to the world, and as a trusted partner cares for both people and country. Uranium has been mined at Ranger for more than 35 years. During that time, Ranger has produced in excess of 125,000 tonnes of uranium oxide. ERA is committed to protecting the surrounding environment in which it operates and to demonstrating world class progressive rehabilitation practices. Since 2012, ERA has spent more than $452 million on rehabilitation and water management projects. ERA values safety, teamwork, respect, integrity and excellence, and places a high value on training and professional development of its employees. With corporate offices in Darwin and operations in Jabiru, ERA offers a wide variety of career opportunities, actively encourages Indigenous employment, and supports workplace diversity. The Ranger mine is on Aboriginal land and surrounded by, but separate from, the spectacular Kakadu National Park. 

About us

As pioneers in mining and metals, we produce materials essential to human progress.

Our long history is filled with firsts. We’ve developed some of the world’s largest and best quality mines and operations, and our people work in around 35 countries across six continents. Aluminium and copper, diamonds, gold and industrial minerals, iron ore, coal and uranium: our materials make up the world around us. You’ll find them in smartphones, planes, cars, hospitals and throughout your home.

Creating an inclusive and diverse workforce

We are a diverse team of talented, enthusiastic individuals who foster a culture of inclusion. No matter how they may differ, our people share one thing in common. It’s a belief that work is more rewarding when we are accepted and valued for our differences, not judged by them. We all have something to contribute, and it’s this contribution that makes for a great organization and fulfilling career.
