Connor Chard

I joined the Fast-Track program as part of the initial pilot wave in 2018, upon completion of my undergraduate degree in ‘Mining Engineering’ at the Camborne School of Mines. I was instantly attracted to the Nordgold’ s Fast-Track program as it presented a unique & rare opportunity for young professionals to get exposure into the technical, operational & management aspects within mining. The program has top-tier professionals with enormous experience who show a genuine interest & care in your career & professional development. Whilst also learning myself, I have had the pleasure of working alongside & teaching the National workforce, be it in blast design software’s or even using Industrial Drones. The autonomy offered by Nordgold has enabled me to develop unique solutions but to also establish & implement new systems that have demonstrated substantial economic impacts. The freedom to take ownership over a diverse range of projects, not only enables you to make a direct impact on the business, but also rapidly develop skills & knowledge. The program has taken me across all the 3 West Africa Business units, working on a multitude of projects, be it rebuilding a Fleet management System, optimizing the WA sites D&B performance, Waste dump designs, creating 3D models with industrial drones or constructing & designing haul roads. No 2 days will ever be the same.
