Queensland still place for jobs in mines, says recruiter

QUEENSLAND is still the place to be if you're looking for a job in the mines, with engineers, electricians and safety professionals expected to remain in high demand until September.

According to the latest quarterly report from recruitment specialists Hays, most mining work is available in Western Australia, South Australia and Queensland.

The report stated employers in Queensland were predominantly recruiting temporary assignments.

"They are focusing on local candidates and the number of FIFO roles has reduced," Hays said. "FIFO mines are instead only making key replacements as opposed to creating new roles.

"Residential remote mines are still looking for quality residential workers in various positions and if candidates are prepared to relocate then remote positions are available."

Jobs in hot demand across the state include engineers, safety professionals, health advisors, trainers and assessors, surveyors, electricians and plant metallurgists.
