Once the application close date has passed we initially screen all applications against the specified selection criteria, narrowing down the number of candidates for interview. Applicants that we select for interview will be contacted directly.

Our interview process itself consists of two rounds of interviews and we conduct careful reference checks on each selected candidate.

The selection committee for each role has no less than three members; thus the decision on recruitment is never by an individual. Read more about our recruitment process.

You are welcome to apply for as many of our job vacancies that you believe match your skills, experience and career aspirations.

It is our policy to give priority to Mongolians when hiring and our target is to achieve at least:

  • 60% of our workforce as Mongolians during the construction phase; and
  • 90% throughout the operational life of the mine.

Within these targets we will give hiring preference to skilled residents of the South Gobi, with residents of Khanbogd soum, our local district, expected to make up 10 percent of all contracted and permanent workers at the site.

Economic studies conducted by The Mongolian School of Mines in 2006 state that for every job created at Oyu Tolgoi, four additional jobs are created in related industries.
