Mining is booming, so where do I start?

With so many jobs in the industry, it can be very difficult to know where to start, let alone finding the right job that aligns all your personal needs with your mining career goals and ambitions.

Work with a recruiter who knows the industry

To find the ‘perfect’ role, you need to work in partnership with a specialist recruiter who knows the market inside-out. Sourcing the perfect role is a challenging and time intensive process and one best achieved by partnering exclusively with a specialist recruiter who you know and trust and who is able to dedicate their time to achieving the perfect outcome for you.

Access the hidden job market

Finding the perfect role is a process which takes knowledge, time and a lot of effort. Often the perfect role or your dream job won’t be advertised widely in the market. This is known as the “hidden job” market and it accounts for over 75% of the vacancies at at Australian mining companies. The staff at Rock People knows how to uncover these positions, and will do so for you.
