Group Community Relations Advisor
“’My 8 years have been full of lots of different personal and professional development opportunities’”
In 8 years with Evolution Mining, Charmaine has progressed in her career while raising two children – now 13 and 7 – and making a major lifestyle change, moving her family from Theodore, a small rural town in Central Queensland, to Sydney.
Charmaine started at Evolution Mining in a Health and Safety role at Cracow Gold Mine, a predominately FIFO operation in Central Queensland. Charmaine’s role was residential, which meant she drove a 100km round trip to and from site each day to be home with her family at night. Charmaine worked closely with management teams and built strong working relationships with operational teams across the site.
“The biggest highlight for me working onsite was the opportunity to develop personally. I had some great managers that recognised my natural leadership attributes and encouraged me to develop these qualities. It was rewarding working in a leadership role and being in a position to offer development opportunities to my team.”
