A top recruitment agency for mining jobs in Queensland
Although the mining, energy and resources faced challenges in recent years, there is a revival in the industry that offers promising opportunities for candidates looking for jobs in Queensland. As many major mining projects have been awarded recently, strong growth is expected, with a particular need for skilled workers such as engineers and technicians.
According to the 2019 Michael Page Salary Benchmark Report, the mining industry has experienced a 60% increase in the number of jobs posted in the past 12 months. There has been an uptick in demand for Engineers, particularly Mechanical Engineers, Mining Engineers, Process Engineers and Reliability Engineers, as well as Designers and Drafters.
In 2018, there were 9,500 Mining Engineers across Australia, based on data from Jobs Outlook. The majority of workers are based in Queensland and Western Australia, which is promising for candidates in the engineering industry looking for mining jobs in Central Queensland or mining jobs in Far North Queensland. Mining engineers have strong salary prospects with an average weekly earning of $2,037, which is far above the national average of $1,230.
Production Managers are integral to the mining, energy and resources industry, and although the number of Production Managers fell over the past five years to 53,300 workers, Jobs Outlook predicts that there will be plenty of opportunities in this profession with an estimated 23,000 job openings in the next 5 years. The weekly salary for Production Managers is also well above average at $1,634 per week.
For labourers, there are also strong job prospects. Jobs Outlook reported that, in 2018, there were 48,800 drillers, miners and shot firers working across Australia and although the number of workers is expected to remain stable over the next 5 years, there will be around 6,600 job openings every year due to workers leaving. With plenty of opportunities and a high weekly salary of $2,102, labourers can be optimistic when planning their next career move.
Looking to the future, it’s expected there will be a surge in contracting work and opportunities, as well as a shortage of professionals - leading to a highly advantageous environment for candidates looking for jobs. In order to be competitive, those looking for roles in the mining profession should upskill and gain experience in underground mining, 3D modelling design, and process engineering.
