Rob Tyson worked efficiently and in a professional manner from initial contact with the potential employee to securing an interview with the employer. He is very knowledgeable about the mining industry which allowed him to explain the requirements of the position in detail and meant he could select a candidate which was very suited to the role. Rob bridged the communication gap between the employer and potential employee very effectively by having an informal interview with the candidate prior to putting them forward to the employer for an official job interview. This saved time for everyone by minimizing the number of interviews the candidate needed to attend and the hours the employer needed to spend on interviewing applicants. I have recommended Rob to many friends and colleagues and would contact him again if I was in search of a new position.

I have known Rob Tyson for a number of years and, from my own personal experience over many years of owning and operating a specialist international mining industry recruitment business, I feel appropriately qualified to comment on both him and the Company which he leads, Mining International. Rob and his company embody the best qualities necessary, in my opinion, to serve the industry in the supplying of quality personnel at all levels. He has a high degree of integrity in his professional dealings with both client companies and applicants alike and appreciates what is required by all parties in the recruitment process both from the perspective of his client companies seeking quality staff to join and enhance their ranks and also from the job-seeker’s point of view. This is based on his own wide-ranging knowledge of the industry internationally and its people and operational elements from exploration, through development, to production and output of final commodities. Putting “square pegs into square holes” is what Mining International’s business model and their successful achievements are all about! Rob’s extensive practical mining recruitment experience is the foundation of a thoroughly tried and tested procedure, filling important posts in a most cost-effective manner, and the recruitment process is flexible and can be tailored to suit any specific requirements a client may have. Experience has taught me that confidentiality is assured and communication with Rob is second to none and I unequivocally recommend that companies approach Rob at Mining International for any personnel requirements that they may have and see for themselves what they have to offer.

Rob takes his business seriously and makes sure things are taken to the end, he follows issues until to the finish. This goes both ways, that applicant does he’s/her duties as well as employer does his part. No lose ends with him. Straight person with cards on the table from day one. Long experience with mining and fifo leaves no false expectations with candidate what to expect no matter if mine is small or big or where the mine it is located. He keeps candidate well informed what is happening on recruitment process, which, funny enough, is not given with all the recruiters. If I will be in position needing international recruiting services, Rob is definitely my first point of contact.

Been placed by Rob Tyson (Mining – International) twice in two different positions and Countries. He made the transition from workplace to workplace as smooth as possible, making life not just easy for me, but also my family. He’s professional approach on both the candidate and client makes the recruiting process less stressful resulting in both parties feeling more at ease once you reach the one on one interview stage. Daily follow up from Rob on both sides also speeds up the process of reaching an agreement between candidate and client and final Contract stage. His broad knowledge in the mining Industry gives one the advantage of him picking the right position for the right candidate with the best renumeration package negotiated on all levels in the mining Industry. I can recommend Rob Tyson (Mining-International) for all mining professionals in the market looking for placement or career change moves. Their Service is highly recommended with excellent results in a very short time.

I have used Rob for recruitment at several different Operations/Locations I have Managed around the world. Certainly some key elements that keep bringing me back to using Rob, is first and foremost he listens to what the requirement is so I don’t find myself trawling through dozens of CV’s not entirely relevant to the person and the role I am looking for, or talking to Candidates who are just fishing for a role they don’t have a lot of interest in. So by the time you get to shortlisting and interview you are taking to people wanting the role you have on offer. Rob has a good grasp of the various technical roles and the type of person needed to be successful in placing his candidates on an Operation with a high likelihood that the candidate will be successful in the role recruited for. He has an attention to detail and a tenacity to find you the Candidate you are looking for and he certainly never gives up trying to identify this person for you. Rob touches base regularly and I find his weekly Candidate spotlight a useful tool to keep in touch with who is out there in the Industry looking for new Challenges and find I refer back to these when unexpectedly roles come up.

I’ve known Rob for around 10 years from when he was in Australia and found him to be very competent and trustworthy - he knows how to recruit. He understands what your needs and the challenges you’re facing and delivers on expectations. He is well connected and knows the mining industry and I would recommend his services if you’re looking to recruit top senior executives or technical staff for confidential appointments

Having known Rob for many years, I know I can trust him to source the best global candidates for all roles. Rob has sourced blue collar, white collar, and senior leadership roles both in times of feast and famine of talent availability. He and his team have a deep-seated network of talent within the industry, and when Rob is engaged you can be assured of integrity, honesty and confidentiality. Mining International have successfully sourced many difficult and rare professionals for me over the years. As we all know, the value-add in any business from recruiting the right candidate first time is a business fundamental to effective business growth. Furthermore, Rob and his team operate within a solid framework of values which is an essential cornerstone of building trust and a long-term relationship. Throughout the years I have come to know Rob personally and can attest to his personal character being trustworthy and amusing, bringing a personal element to his business that is a rare attribute in this profession. That’s Rob’s X-Factor.

I met Rob whilst searching for employment several years ago, although unable to assist me at that time he kept his promise of keeping in touch with me. It was welcome to receive periodic emails about relevant vacancies and links to the pod casts he conducts with interesting industry achievers. My perception of Rob is he is a very diligent professional who knows people everywhere and keeps his finger on the pulse of who is looking to fill expat FIFO vacancies worldwide. It is obvious from my many chats with Rob that he has superb industry knowledge and that he has researched the nuances of the position he has been tasked to fill. In short he asks the right questions to put forward the right candidate so to not waste anyone’s time. The last position Rob contacted me about was right on cue for me. The whole process from initial inquiry to receiving an employment contract only took a few days. Spoke to Rob about the position on Wednesday, was interviewed on Friday had an final interview with the GM on Sunday morning and contract in my email Monday morning. Astonishing work. Especially in these unusual Covid 19 restricted times. The personal follow up during the onboarding process made the whole process seamless and removed any lingering doubt which is often the case during what can be a somewhat stressful time. I think it is pretty safe to say that without Rob’s skill as a recruiter/headhunter, his straight shooting no nonsense and very professional approach to his business I would not be enjoying this new FIFO position I am working in today.

I would highly recommend the Dig Deep podcast by the Mining International team. They have always been professional and a pleasure to deal with. Featuring on the podcast gave our company a wider reach and resulted in a number of inquiries and new investors for the company.
