Our People

We are proud to say that when we turn up to work every day, we are working alongside some of the best in the business. Our people are our greatest asset – because on a day-to-day basis it is our people who influence our success.


Here at
New Hope
we value diversity

Our team is made up of engineers and geologists to trades and mechanical specialists to health and safety advisors to human resources and administrative specialists. From our award-winning apprentices to our senior leaders, and everyone in between, New Hope is committed to diversity in both background and experience. We recruit on merit and celebrate the individual contribution that each person makes to our business at the same time as encouraging strong teams that are founded on collaboration and partnership.

Student Vacation Program

Each year, New Hope’s student vacation work program provides university students with real-life learning opportunities across multiple disciplines in the resouces sector. Don't just take our word for it though.

"I’d had no hands-on experience in the industry before, so this has really ignited a passion for what I hope to do in the future.”

Blake, student Mining Engineer

“I was really lucky in that I was able to get involved with all the sites through the environmental work that I was doing. It's definitely the career I want to get into.”

Stephanie, student Environmental Officer


People are crucial to our success

Crucial to rewarding careers is the opportunity to develop a tailored and personalised career path. With a business spanning coal, agriculture and port management, at operations on site and in our offices, we offer a broad variety of work opportunities in addition to roles that allow our people to deepen their area of specialisation.

Our employees are valued as individuals. Through our LEAP program (Leading Effective and Achievable Performance) we create a space where we exchange feedback so that our employees develop while enabling them to contribute to the company’s ongoing improvement. This is supported by training and development plans to help our people achieve their goals.

Other benefits of working with New Hope include:

  • Competitive market-based remuneration
  • Great locations to work in South-East Queensland
  • Financial recognition and rewards programs for exceptional performance
  • Educational assistance and flexible work schedules for courses related to New Hope’s business and individual career planning
  • Parental leave benefits and tailored return-to-work plans
  • Tailored leadership and development program
  • Staff health programs and engagement activities


We always recognise and reward high quality work

We recognise that there are many ways an organisation can show its people they are valued. Our leaders take every opportunity to recognise and reward high quality work and, through our employee rewards program, we take what we say and turn it into a memorable experience, from family weekends and fishing trips to dinners and day spas for those who have made an outstanding contribution.

With a vibrant 25-year club, which recognises our long servers, we are privileged to have so many on our team stay with us for a significant length of tenure. We are about commitment, passion, respect and a workplace that people enjoy being part of. We are small enough that people can truly make a difference, and large enough that they benefit from security and sustainability in their employment.

People determine performance and that is why people are important to New Hope.
