Like it or not mining and construction are people businesses. And people problems aren’t about bad people — they stem from having the wrong people in the wrong roles, because nobody took the time to get it right the first time.
So let’s get it right. Let’s not just get you the best people, let’s show you how to get the best out of them so they become your best asset over time. Here’s how we do it…
We’re Specialists in recruitment for mining
The specialist beats the generalist. Mining and construction are highly specialised industries — and that’s the niche we chose to specialise in. The general recruiter rhetoric doesn’t cut it here. These industries have unique people challenges. And we get that. The good news is that we’ve seen and solved them all before and it’s the sole reason why we exist. So we use our national footprint, and 100K+ curated special purpose database to find matches that others miss.

We do what we say we will and
we’ll always be Honest with you.
Recruiters have a bad name — and that pisses us off. Many over-promise, under-deliver, skirt around the real issues and often take the job with no intention of fulfilling it — and that sucks. It sucks for everybody, so you’ll never catch us telling fibs. You might not always like it, but you’ll always get the truth from us. And you might just find that a refreshing change.
We’re part of your industry and know the challenges.
We do more to ensure no dud hires or annoying no-shows.
Business development and training to make your workplace work.
We develop effective teams and high performing individuals
We do the Work, from sourcing to
onboarding and ongoing training.
There’s a difference between filling a role and filling a role with the RIGHT person. To do the latter you’ve got to do the work. A lot of work. Not just the standard checks, but to create actual tests to see how people act and react under real-life pressure and if they’re a good fit for the culture and role long term. We do more rigorous testing than anyone in the industry, so it’s no surprise why our retention rates range from a x3 to a staggering x8 against industry benchmarks.
In the last 18 months, in total we’ve engaged with Aston for about 130 candidates, it’s been critical to the business to be honest. My experience working with the Aston team has been excellent. Being able to call on somebody that specialises in that field, to have candidates ready to go.
