Q

How do I get a job in mining?

A

As with many other industries work experience, knowledge and training in a similar area is an advantage. Local experience may also be preferred.

No one specific course will get you into the mining industry. The requirements of each mining project or contract will vary according to the location, the type of mining and the stage of the project or contract.

Contact the companies and contractors listed at the member companies page at cmewa.com or peopleforthefuture.com.au

The Australian Mines and Metals Association is the resource industry's peak national employer group that is driving effective workforce outcomes. Their publication A jobseeker guide to the resources industry has some great information about working in the mining industry.
