Interested applicants will be screened by Jobfit Health Group, a divison of Fullerton Health recognized for their broad range of occupational healthcare services to thousands of businesses nationally, including pre-employment medical assessments, work fitness assessments, injury management and prevention, drug and alcohol screening, onsite medical services, health surveillance and health and wellness programmes.

Located on the eastern shore of the Upper Spencer Gulf in South Australia, approximately 230 kms north of Adelaide, the Port Pirie smelter has been in constant operation for over 127 years. There is an adjacent dedicated port facility where concentrates are received, with final products dispatched by road and rail.

The Port Pirie Redevelopment involves the conversion of the Port Pirie operations into an advanced metal recovery and refining facility, enabling the facility to process a wider range of high margin feed materials, including internal zinc smelter residues and concentrates. Once fully ramped-up, the Port Pirie Redevelopment will allow Nyrstar to capture a greater proportion of the value contained within the feed material consumed by its global network of smelters as well as third party residues. The increased operating flexibility of the smelter following the Port Pirie Redevelopment is expected to create a fundamentally different operating and business model.

The key aspects of the Port Pirie Redevelopment include the replacement of the existing sinter plant with an oxygen enriched bath smelting furnace and replacement of the existing sulfuric acid plant with a new plant with greater capacity and upgraded technology.
