WHY JOIN SCHLAM CRU?

We are, by definition, a people business and our success is dependent on growing, and supporting, a high-quality, highly capable workforce to deliver for our customers.

Because of this, our purpose is to create the best possible environment for people to thrive.

For people to thrive they have to be working in jobs they love, jobs they’re good at, jobs where they can maximise their potential. That’s why we work tirelessly to match the right people with the right opportunities.

However, placing a candidate is just the starting point. Once they’re part of the Schlam family, we support them better than anyone else.

By focusing our business so heavily on our people, on their individual hopes and dreams, and the way we look after and support them to succeed, ultimately, we want to become the best place to work in Australia.

Benefits

Sure, Schlam delivers on great pay, a great roster and great sites but so do a lot of companies. How are we different?

A great culture

Nothing is more important to us than building a good company culture. At Schlam, we are committed to bringing our people on a journey of success and growth. Our leaders want to engage more directly and deeply with our employees, and we let our employees bring their ‘whole selves’ to work.

Compensation

We offer top rates for quality talent, but more importantly, we pay superannuation on all hours. We also pay for your training and inductions.

Do you want a casual or permanent contract? What about a locked-in pay review period? We offer that!

Rosters

We understand that some people just don’t want long periods away from home, and others just want to cash up fast! Other companies only offer set rosters that don’t suit their lifestyle but at Schlam we allow you to choose your roster and offer a variety of swings.

Various Field Service Options

Given our large customer base, Schlam can offer you work on all Tier 1 mine sites, among many others across the Pilbara and the Goldfields. We also have Perth-based options if you are wanting (or needing) to come back home for personal reasons.

Flexibility and Work-Life Balance

With access to over 40 sites, we can deliver on what you really want, not what we want. Whether that’s changing sites, rosters, working extra swings, working locally or even needing time off, Schlam can give you the flexibility you need.

Career Development

We have assisted many Schlam employees through their Trade Upgrades from LV Mechanics to HD Mechanics. Schlam can pay for your HRWL tickets and upskilling courses too. With the right attitude, you can progress your career into leading hand/supervisor roles fairly quickly, and you’ll gain exposure to a huge range of heavy equipment.

Job Security

All our positions can offer long-term contracts that guarantee work in a permanent role. Schlam is a rapidly growing company with an extremely high staff retention rate.
