Miner Rio Tinto hiring commodity market analysts in Singapore

Reuters has recently reported that global miner Rio Tinto is looking to hire eight Singapore-based experts to improve its supply and demand analysis in commodity markets.

As one of the world's biggest mining companies, the firm has a market capitalisation of nearly USD$80 billion and is focused on resources such as iron ore, copper, aluminum and coal.

According to the report, the company posted the vacancies on its website earlier this month, with a spokesman saying that they were "routine hirings". This will add to its staff of over 300 people in Singapore.

The roles they're looking to fill include positions in market analysis (ranging from junior to principal analysts), offering short-term supply and demand analysis, as well as competitor analysis.

The mining giant is also hiring leaders for various procurement divisions within its global sourcing team including for raw materials, technology, hydrocarbons and explosives and for property services, according to its website, although it was not clear whether these were added positions or staff replacements.

The procurement team oversees sourcing and buying of goods and services for all operations and businesses within the company.
