View full profile



Jaysen Chilcott has more than 23 years of experience in the management, design, procurement and construction of multi discipline projects within the mining and minerals and processing industries crossing coal, iron ore, bauxite, alumina, copper, gold / silver and phosphates. His ability to comply with corporate policies and procedures whilst adopting local and regional statutory regulations across projects has been developed through delivering EPCM projects in remote areas and reporting to senior committees and shareholders in base countries.

Mr. Chilcott's ability to steer a team with compliance to occupational health, safety, welfare and environmental policies, quality assurance procedures, industry / project standards and requirements is exceptional.

He has worked with local, state, national governments and communities in foreign countries to facilitate excellent relationships across project regions. Assisted by a credible amount of site experience whilst undertaking both Greenfield and Brownfield projects, he has enhanced the operations of projects by providing management and administration support, contractor liaison, negotiation leadership and technical solutions.

Mr. Chilcott has executed projects for major companies such as BHP Billiton, Anglo, Xstrata, Glencore, Vale and Rio Tinto and is completely in tune with owners requirements. After spending time seconded into owners teams his approach is to develop and secure relationships with owner’s senior management providing transparency across the project development and reporting.

Mr. Chilcott is currently executing the Cerrejón P40 Expansion Project as Project Director in Colombia with SNC-Lavalin.
