SEEK is Australia’s number one job site with over 150,000 jobs online and has around 25 million visits each month, on average.
The award-winning SEEK jobs website has an extensive list of mining jobs including Mining Drill & Blast, Engineering, Surveying, Power Generation & Distribution and a whole lot more.
No matter what your experience in the mining industry, SEEK jobs (and there’s a lot of them) seem to dominate the jobs search market.
If you want to work in the mining and resource sector, you have to be resourceful. The best way to begin is to search on SEEK for jobs in mining that relate to what you’re doing now, or what skills you have at this time. The SEEK website and it’s cutting-edge technology will help you to find jobs with ease.
Typically you start by selecting ‘Mining, Resources & Energy’ in the Classification box, and then select the sub classifications from there. You can also add a keyword to really narrow down your SEEK jobs search. Quite often in the SEEK search results you will see there are many skills and qualifications that are transferrable from other industries into mining.
Today’s modern mining operations are focused on productivity and they desperately need plumbers, electricians, builders, boilermakers, welders, mechanics, IT personnel, HR people, medical staff, logistics experts and heavy vehicle drivers to keep operations running smoothly.
Even if you’re one of the many people who have the right mix of attitude and experience in other areas of expertise, you can still find many mining jobs on the SEEK website that will give you a start at an entry level.
These mining jobs can be administrative assistants, cooks and catering staff, cleaners and maintenance staff, childcare workers, drivers, security staff and general labourers.
There are plenty of mining traineeship jobs advertised on SEEK too, which offer you the chance of on-the-job training and qualifications as you learn.
