As three times winners of The Sunday Times Top 100 Best Small Company award, we recognise that our performance and abilities are only as good as our employees we are able to attract, develop and retain.
We operate a flat management and corporate structure and believe in the involvement of our employees in decisions that directly affect them. SRK is independently owned and operated by its employees.
Our employees are technical specialists from a broad range of disciplines such as mineral exploration, geology, resource/reserve estimation, geotechnical engineering, hydrology, hydrogeology, mining engineering, environmental & social, mineral processing, and waste and tailings disposal.
By maintaining an environment which is conducive to innovative thinking and solutions, we provide opportunities for ambitious individuals to grow their client base and reputations in directions somewhat of their own choosing. As we provide services to a wide variety of Clients across the globe, working with us offers the chance to travel world-wide. You will gain exposure to diverse and challenging portfolios of world class projects. Also joining the UK practice opportunities exist to work within our practices across the Russian Federation, Sweden, Turkey or Kazakhstan.
"By far the best thing about working with SRK is the large number of departments under one roof that cover all technical aspects of mining. This means we can work together to effectively produce reports that are relevant for the client’s requirements. Also, SRK is employee owned, which means the hard work we put in during the year is ultimately rewarded in the form of a bonus based on our performance."
Michael Palmer, Consultant (Hydrogeology)

- Manage diverse and challenging global projects, employees join for the variety for work with a range of clients
- Enjoy working with some of the leading industry experts enabling you to build on your expertise
Joining a dynamic company like SRK you benefit from the “lifestyle” choice. For example, living and working in an up and coming city that has a lot to offer, normality of hours, compared to working on site on a FIFO basis.
"Throughout my internship, I was exposed to many different project types across the world assisting different disciplines and learning their relevant trade and skills with help and assistance from supervising colleagues. The expertise SRK offers to interns when it comes to the training, supervision and exposure to projects are second to none. I feel that upon leaving SRK, I will have become a more mature and confident individual with my increased technical skill set, industry knowledge and problem solving ability that will further aid my professional career"
"I applied for the SRK Consulting Scholarship Programme as a novice to the mining industry. My MSc placement, organised by SRK, was a quick awakening as I headed out to Ghana to conduct fieldwork on a gold exploration project. This was an amazing experience which provided me with practical skills in prospect mapping, geochemical sampling and drill hole targeting. Whilst out on site, I felt secure in the knowledge that I had the expertise of SRK to assist with any problems: technical, logistical or personal. Since completing my MSc I have been working for SRK in the Resource Geology department for over a year. This has provided many opportunities to work in the fields of resource reporting, geological modelling, geological and geotechnical logging on a wide variety of commodities ranging from iron ore to gold. Now, upon leaving SRK I know that I have much more industry awareness and appreciation of the responsibilities expected of a professional resource geologist. My technical skills and applied geological knowledge are vastly improved thanks to the consultants and training provided by SRK."
