Mining Jobs Expos – iMINCO

A resource industry job expo will be staged on the Gold Coast in a few weeks’ time to connect the city’s unemployed with mining and construction companies who want willing workers.

Premier Anna Bligh this afternoon made the announcement on the Gold Coast following a mining jobs summit between resource company executives, the State Government and councils.

Where will the Mining job expos be held?

Work for Queensland job expos will also be staged in Cairns, the Sunshine Coast, the Whitsunday region and the Wide Bay Burnett.

”We have significant numbers of Queenslanders, particularly in some regional areas, out of work and yet the mining industry is facing a skills shortage,” Ms Bligh said.

How many jobs will be available?

”We know that as many as 38,000 construction and operation jobs will be created in the Queensland resources sector between now and 2014-2015.

”The resources sector has committed to identifying the jobs and skills required immediately and in the longer term and bringing those vacancies to the expos.

”We have also secured the support of five regional councils to help us tap into these new pools of resource workers.

”This agreement will help ensure people in these regional areas have greater opportunity to benefit from this jobs boom.”

When is the Gold Coast mining jobs expo on?

The exact date for the Gold Coast expo is unknown, but Ms Bligh said it would be staged sometime in September or early October.Here is thedates for the Mining Jobs Expos
