Newman is a mining town in the heart of the Pilbara, located inland about 450 kilometres south-east of Port Hedland. It has a population of around 3000 people and an additional fly-in fly-out workforce of around 800. It is a very young and multicultural town of high salaries and long working hours. There is also a high turnover of locals and FIFO workers. As Newman is quite isolated from surrounding towns, there is a real sense of community in town. There are lots of children in town but few teenagers, as high-schoolers usually go to boarding school elsewhere.
This position is currently vacant.
