The Topdrill Team

Topdrill was started by Tim Topham in 2006 with a single rig and 2 employees. Since then, we’ve grown to become one of the most reliable operators in the Goldfields.

With a fleet of 28 rigs and over 300 employees, our size has changed but our grounded work ethic hasn’t.

We’re committed to our people and our community, supporting local trades and charities. Our standardised Schramm and Sandvik fleet of equipment is state of the art, our safety procedures lead the industry and our employee benefits package is the best in the industry – we look after our team!

If you’re a hard worker that likes being part of a rock-solid team, Topdrill is a top choice.

Kalgoorlie Life

A lot of people ask us ‘what do you do in the Goldfields outside of work?’ Here are just a few of our favourite things about our home:

Camping and Hiking - If you love the outdoors there’s plenty of beautiful spots to enjoy a weekend exploring. There are some great dams for swimming in if you want to cool off too.

Strong Sporting Culture - Cricket and footy, all the way to BMX, horseriding and golf. There are loads of family-oriented sports clubs in the Goldfields.

Vibrant Social Calendar - Youth festivals, monthly markets, pubs and clubs to enjoy a drink with mates. There are plenty of places and opportunities to socialise in Kalgoorlie.

What our crew say about Topdrill

Maintenance Superintendent- 18 months with Topdrill
“The training Tim and the Topdrill team have put not just me, but many others through during my time here is second to none.

Whether it has been trades, truck licences, first aid courses, working at heights or drill certs, you just wouldn’t have got those opportunities elsewhere.

It’s also great to be in a team where you work hard but can have a laugh with colleagues and enjoy the experience together.”
RC Driller- 2 years with Topdrill
“Having moved to Australia from England over two years ago, Topdrill have been nothing but supportive.

The Topdrill culture between the boys is one of the best I have experienced. Work hard, be professional on the job, make good money, and have a beer with the boys after work.

I’ve made good friends here, it’s an awesome place to work.”
Admin Support- 1 year with Topdrill
“Topdrill has provided me with an abundance of skills, new opportunities and life lessons; plus the encouragement of a family like atmosphere makes for such a great work environment.”
