What makes Detour Gold an excellent choice?

Detour Gold is currently ramping up to become Canada’s next intermediate gold producer, having started gold production in early 2013. With a projected mine life of over 20 years, the Detour Lake open pit operation is expected to make a positive socio-economic contribution to the economy of northern Ontario.

Ramping up in operations, Detour Gold will transition from almost 1,200 contract workers to over 500 permanent employees. With the mine in production, the work schedule at site will be an attractive one week in/ one week out. Our employees are hosted at site in a newly constructed facility set next to a pristine lake and equipped with en-suite rooms and amenities to make living at camp your ‘home away from home’.

Detour Gold aims to be an employer of choice and to build a diverse and inclusive workforce of highly talented and motivated employees. Detour Gold is an equal employment opportunity employer offering a range of exciting and rewarding careers in a variety of disciplines. We strive to maximize local employment in the communities surrounding the mine operation and with our Aboriginal partners.

Detour Gold is looking to recruit and retain employees who will make a significant contribution to our business, corporate culture and who embody our vision and values. We are looking for employees who are motivated and have a positive attitude towards their job and their co-workers. We are seeking employees who have an aptitude to work collaboratively, in an environment of mutual respect and who will show commitment and a dedication to excellence.
