A lift in the activity on liquefied natural gas developments on both east and west coasts and increased investment in iron ore and coal export capacity have raised employer`s confidence to its highest level since September 2008, the latest Hudson Employment Expectations survey found.
Mine Jobs Australia
Western Australia demonstrated the greatest quarterly increase in sentiment across the states and territories, with 43.1 per cent of employers saying they intended to increase their permanent staff levels in the forecast period, up 23 per cent from the previous quarter, the research found. Queensland has also recorded a strong result, up 16.2 per cent to 35.3 per cent. More than 54 per cent of employers in the resources industry reported an intention to increase their permanent staff levels.

Resources and Infrastructure Industry (RII)
Commonly refered to as Black Coal Competency (BCC), the RII competency is one that can be attained by an operator who has previously worked in the industry and has completed a number of operating hours on various types of machinery.
RII competency is granted to prove correct and safe operation of mine site machinery. It is a very useful qualification to have, as it confirms the operator has the required experience and expertise.
You can transfer your nationally recognised civil Excavator, Front End Loader or Dozer tickets only to RII Black Coal Competencies.
