About this role

This is a sales role with a difference. You have a practical background in underground or surface mining, strong practical knowledge from your hands-on experience in a range of mining applications. Your focus is to demonstrate and persuade all audiences that these Electronic Initiation Systems (EIS) provide maximum control, maximum effectiveness and are the safest option of electronic delay detonators.

In this role you will be part of team that manages the entire process, from first demonstrations, to initial trials and test blasting, through to successful and sustainable conversions to Electronic Initiation Systems at a customer site. You’ll start with persuading and converting current company customers, demonstrating the benefits at the start and training end users of EIS systems (ensuring adherence to the strictest safety regulations and procedures at all times).

Your experience with electronic delay detonators means you can help customers choose the best EIS solution and support conversion to EIS methodologies. You’ll support your customers at every step, identifying and resolving specific technical difficulties, tracking faults and under performance of the system and recording any issues into the company system for improvement. You’ll provide comments to support a process of continuous design improvement. Your recorded feedback will go to the control equipment and detonator product designers and developers. Your technical understanding as a subject matter expert, combined with your strong communication skills (written and verbal) makes you a great trainer for customers and internal teams.

Ensure compliance with all HSE performance standards and regulations
Support continuous improvement through effective feedback to product designers and developers
