Working with Fortescue

Since its formation in 2003, Fortescue Metals Group has evolved from a grassroots explorer into the world’s fourth largest producer of iron ore. Formed around the kitchen table of Chairman Andrew Forrest, Fortescue secured tenements in the Pilbara region of Western Australia and began exploring for iron ore in the belief that the potential of the Pilbara had barely been tapped and China’s rapidly growing economy would create long term demand for commodities.

Just five years after the company was formed, Fortescue shipped its first cargo of iron ore bound for China. In late 2010, Fortescue announced plans to almost triple production to 155mtpa. The US$9 billion expansion across port, rail and mining operations was officially commissioned in March 2014.

One of the keys to Fortescue's success has been finding the right people - achievers who share the same vision and can-do attitude. Fortescue people like to challenge the norm and set, and achieve, stretch targets. Join the Fortescue Family, the New Force in Iron Ore.
