Job Title: Electrical and Instrumentation Supervisor

Newmont Mining Corporation, a major gold producer, has operations in Nevada, Peru, Australia, Ghana, and Suriname. Newmont Africa Operations operates two gold mines in Ghana: the Ahafo Mine in Brong-Ahafo and the Akyem Mine in Eastern. Ghana’s near-mine exploration and development replace gold reserves annually. Newmont Africa has early-stage exploration programs in Ethiopia and Morocco.

The Ahafo Mine employs most of our 5,900 African employees and contractors. We provide unmatched career satisfaction and opportunity with global company benefits. This and our growth opportunities make Newmont a great place to work. Our Akyem and Ahafo mines invested heavily in sustainable community development in our host communities. Each mine contributes US$1 per ounce of gold sold and 1% of net pre-tax annual profit to its community development fund at Akyem and Ahafo.

Newmont was the first gold company to join the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index in 2007. Newmont’s Africa operations are industry leaders in environmental management, worker health and safety, and creating value and opportunity for employees, host communities, and shareholders.
