About us:

about-main

Projects. People. Place. 

Despite the current market unrest within the sector, the war for top talent rages.  With 39% of mining executives planning to retire from full-time employment within the next four years and less than 1/3rd of resource companies having any sort of succession planning in place, the Industry as whole will face a demographic tsunami the likes of which have never been seen before. It is in bear markets where our value proposition is most pronounced. When commodity prices plateau, so too does any room for error and having the right management in place is often the difference that makes the difference.  Those who partner with a firm such as ours, that understands their business, will secure and retain the best and brightest.

Since our establishment, The Mining Recruitment Group has become The leader in executive search for emerging junior and mid-cap mining companies. We have advised some of the most prominent resource companies on the planet and maintain a worldwide network of mining executives that can be matched to suit our Clients’ needs.

Since inception, we have advised companies ranging in size from $5M to $20B in market cap and have been involved in successful searches spanning all senior executive and functional leadership positions within the mining industry. Our track record and involvement with high-profile searches and Client turnarounds has garnered us regular publicity on a national scale.

The Mining Recruitment Group combines the best of executive search practices in terms of thoroughness of search process with the speed, savvy, and personal attention required by rapidly growing resource companies. Our value to clients begins with four important differentiators—boutique service; sector expertise; leadership focus; and an innovative model that allows Clients to pay for and reap only the benefits they require for any search process.

Our mission is to craft a legacy built from the continuous growth and improvement of our clients, candidates and families. We invite you to partner with us in this ongoing endeavour.
SINCERELY,

Mission statement:

Our mission is to contribute to our clients’ success by identifying men and women of uncommon ability and potential…individuals to whom our clients might not otherwise have access.

Our clients entrust us with some of their most important, sensitive, and confidential management issues.

We repay this trust by putting their interests above all else.

 

We focus on the details, leaving you to focus on your own business.

 

 

President’s fund:

THE MINING RECRUITMENT GROUP IS HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE THE LAUNCH OF ITS INTERNAL RESOURCE FOCUSED INVESTMENT FUND.

 

Andrew Pollard, President of MRG states “The Industry is now working its way through what has been one of the most challenging periods on record. Global spending on exploration is estimated to reach lows not seen in the past 4 years and investment into the junior sector, the lifeline of the industry, is around 10% of what it would be in a healthy market. Despite this, I have witnessed a marked increase in sentiment as of late. The tide is now shifting and, from my perspective, those companies that are going to succeed will need two things: leadership and support. As leadership is what my business has always been predicated on, I want to now dually focus on supporting those companies committed to building the best teams. It is with these companies that I want to establish a vested interest in while changing the dynamic from Client to Partner.”

The MRG President’s Fund will be established to take key positions within our executive search clients, up to and including 100% of our fees generated. Given the size and nature of our typical deals, this can amount to significant positions within our “partner” clients.
