Whilst we are currently in a shortage of people in all sectors the opportunities to get in the mines are not as easy as some would promote. There are some skill sets that transition into mining well. The clients we provide to generally request we find experienced personnel in all job types and occasionally we will be requested to source suitable people to put through as trainees.
If you have no exposure to working on mine sites, we highly recommend you consider the conditions you are comfortable with. Consider the rosters, shift work, long working hours, heat, cold and isolation. We highly recommend you discuss it in length with your family and work through the positives and negatives of working away.
