Stratum Site helps you hire hands-on operational, projects and exploration leaders adept at leading and inspiring site teams to generate greater ROI.
Stratum pioneered its proactive “farming” model in 2012 because we recognised the traditional reactive, advertising-driven recruitment model was fundamentally flawed.
Having since interviewed and assessed thousands of technical and commercial in-country/site-based professionals (often passive in the market), Stratum reduces risk and ensures cultural fit.

RECRUITING SITE LEADERSHIP ACROSS THE GLOBE
Mining materially contributes to everyone’s world. Stratum’s purpose is to ensure that the best people carry this responsibility.
With nearly 100 years of combined experience in international mining recruitment, Stratum Site has interviewed more than 7,000 professionals in mining leadership roles at operational sites, development projects, or exploration targets globally.
WHY BE PROACTIVE
THE STRATUM APPROACH
Research shows that 80% of people are hired based on their skills. Yet many people leave roles due to cultural/behavioural-related issues (leadership, work style, etc.). Because Stratum is deeply focused and proactive, we aim to materially reduce hiring risk by focusing on cultural fit.
We are able to focus on fit because we rarely need to start any new search reactively in a way other mining recruitment firms might have to (you’ll never see Stratum advertise positions). Instead, we combine our extensive data with fresh market mapping for every search, enabling us to identify and access the best professionals in the market, whether they are active or passive.
Stratum Site’s advisory and consulting services can help you cut costs, access new markets, and reduce risks as you expand your business.
With over 25 years of industry experience, an active programme of primary research, and our global network of international mining executives and leaders, we deliver guidance you can depend on.
Stratum has proactively dedicated over 10,000 hours to interviewing and assessing thousands of the top site managers, technical leaders and project developers.
Once we understand your mandate, our specialist recruitment team will map the market to determine who is experienced within the region you’re mining.
This allows us to rapidly build a highly targeted list of potential candidates.
Attracting the best and brightest site leadership comes at a price.
Once we know what the role entails, we will compare salary ranges across similar roles and regions to determine a fair and competitive offer for your candidate.
The industry is undergoing massive change. Diversity of experience, gender, nationality, and age can only enrich the workforce.
Failing to act will negatively impact future investment opportunities.
Give your firm a competitive advantage. Partner with Stratum and we will look within the industry and to other markets to find the right people for the job.
Do you know who will drive your firm’s legacy once the existing leadership team leaves?
Succession planning ensures you’re not left frantically searching for a candidate to fill a vital role in your team.
We can help you avoid speed-to-delivery issues. Having built long-term relationships with the top 20% of operational, project, and exploration leaders, we already know which candidates could step in and be successful.
