Dump truck jobs in WA are once again starting to emerge as more and more mining companies in WA, rev up their production in the iron ore mines.
Specialist drivers of dump trucks are always in demand because of the high levels of safety and diligence these drivers posses.
WA jobs driving dump trucks are always advertised on the major mining jobs boards, and not just advertising WA jobs. The many boards advertising dump truck jobs in WA contain job opportunities from mining recruiters like SEEK, INDEED, CareerONE, JobSeach and iMINCO.
Recruitment companies will typically act on behalf of a mining company and do the groundwork first to filter out the unsuitable candidates and create a short list of people who they feel have the experience as well as the ‘human skills’ to take on the job of a dump truck driver in WA.
Mining recruiters such as Randstad, Stellar Recruitment and Programmed Integrated Workforce will be employed by mining companies operating in the WA Pilbara region. Some of these mining companies will include the biggest and well-known names in the industry. Mining companies like BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto, Fortescue Metals Group and Roy Hill (Gina Rinehart) are at the forefront of creating WA mining jobs in the iron ore rich region.
Driving a dump truck, or as they are often called, a ‘haul truck’ requires the operators be trained and extremely focused on safety. Unlike other states in Australia, WA jobs as a dump truck driver often requires that the operator hold a current HR (Heavy Rigid) licence also.
In order to maintain the high standards of safety and compliance when operating huge mining trucks, the Australian government has created a qualification that covers the safe and controlled operation of a dump truck. This course is named the RIIMPO311A Conduct Haul Truck Operations. It is a complete dump truck training course for people who want to drive a dump truck on a mine site or a quarry.
This national qualification covers no only coal mines, but also every other type of metaliferous mining operation such as gold, copper, sliver, bauxite etc. This highly recommended, 5 day dump truck training course prepares new operators for the tough conditions and challenges of operating giant trucks in close proximity with other mine site vehicles and machinery.
There is also an express 2-day intensive dump truck operator training course, which is held in Brisbane and is perfect for people who are looking for WA jobs and need to move quickly and gain the RIIMPO311A qualification.
Below is a list of dump truck jobs currently being advertised. Take the time to view each job, research the mining company that is advertising the job and learn as much as you can about their mining operations as well as the types of machinery you will be expected to safely operate.
Be well-prepared in advance and have your resume updated with your recent and relevant qualifications on page one of your resume.
