Analyst Technical Content (Technical Writer)


Work at our state-of-the-art Operations Centre – Perth Airport location
Ongoing access to family-friendly health and medical wellbeing support
Attractive share ownership plan

About the role

Rio Tinto Rail Operations is currently seeking a Technical Writer to focus on content management. This role will be working within the Rail Governance team and is based at the Rio Tinto operations center at Perth Airport, on a standard Monday to Friday work arrangement.

Reporting to the Specialist Rail Governance & Compliance, the role is largely focused on managing changes to existing content (procedures and manuals) and as such there is a heavy HTML exposure. The nature of the work follows repetitive process cycles, and this calls for someone who is comfortable with complex computer-based operations of a repetitive nature. This is not a content-creation role. The content is maintained using single-sourcing principles and accessed by our customers through several systems and mediums.

This opportunity is suited to a Technical Writer who would like to branch into managing content in MadCap Flare – an open source, HTML-based content management tool. While previous experience in Flare or similar HTML-based tools is an advantage, it is not essential. Training in Rio Tinto management systems and processes will be provided.

You will be responsible for:


Transitioning, maintaining, and retiring controlled document content for rail in consultation with the business, subject matter experts and authors and in-line with Rail Governance processes
Using and updating document management systems
Participating in and contributing to Rail Governance meetings, discussions, and workshops
Applying continuous improvement methods with respect to Rail controlled document content and processes
Project support as required for the Rail Governance team

About you

To be successfully considered for this role, you will have:


Rio Tinto Values of Safety, Teamwork, Respect, Integrity and Excellence resonate with you and you have good relationship building skills
You are organised, methodical, able to troubleshoot, and accustomed to working to deadlines.
You must demonstrate an established interest in and commitment to a writing discipline, e.g., Technical Writers, web content managers
Can demonstrate skills in HTML code writing
You should have post-secondary education or equivalent in a writing-related area, e.g., English qualification, document writing training, writing professional
C Class Manual drivers’ license

Where you will be working

You will be based at our world class Operations Centre nearby Perth’s Airport.

Our network is the largest privately owned and operated heavy haul rail system in Australia, and as we focus on the future, our vision is to become the greatest heavy haul railway in the world. With depots located at Tom Price, Cape Lambert and Dampier (7 Mile), we operate 200 locomotives on more than 1,700 kilometres of track. Our trains operate autonomously in the Pilbara to transport ore from 16 mines to four port terminals. Each train comprises up to three locomotives, 240 ore cars and measures approximately 2.7 kilometres in length.

We are also applying and adapting technology to improve safety and productivity across our rail network.

What’s on offer


A work environment where safety is always the number one priority
A permanent position working directly for Rio Tinto
A competitive base salary reflective of your skills and experience with annual incentive program
Comprehensive medical benefits including subsidised private health insurance for employees and immediate family
Attractive share ownership plan
Company provided insurance cover
Extensive salary sacrifice & salary packaging options
Career development & education assistance to further your technical or leadership ambitions
Ongoing access to family-friendly health and medical wellbeing support
Leave for all of life’s reasons (vacation/annual, paid parental, sick leave)
Exclusive employee discounts (banking, accommodation, cars, retail and more)
Possible domestic relocation assistance
