Graduate story: Business
Bachelor of Business (2012)
Graduate Human Resources Advisor
Rio Tinto – Northparkes Mines
Bachelor of Business
As a graduate human resources advisor I play a large part in the workforce planning at Rio Tinto – Northparkes Mines, helping to determine our projected workforce numbers for the coming year and developing succession plans for positions. This involves reviewing budgets and identifying areas for efficiency improvements, recruiting and selecting employees and facilitating organisational changes affecting payand reporting structures.
I want to develop my career in the mining industry and build relationships with Rio Tinto Australia, and other mine sites, and eventually lead a HR team either within a business unit inmining or in another sector.
The Bachelor of Business helped me understand the processes and theory behind the functions within my role. The class sizes were small and the material was very relevant, current and presented in a way that encouraged interaction and learning through practise which aided my development.
