Australia in urgent need of engineers & geologists

Posted on

Australia’s mining sector is witnessing an acute shortage of mining, engineering and geology professionals. The past 1 year has seen aggressive recruitment in this particular sector.

During this tenure, 44% of Australian companies reported a rise in operational staff levels. A major revelation was that despite of tighter credit conditions 74% of Australian organizations expect business activity to increase over coming 12 months. The Aus Salary Survey states: “The expansion of existing mines and a number of new mines has seen the requirement climb for experienced mine engineers across the country, both in underground and open pit.”

Almost every major state of Australia is experiencing its own skill shortages. While Western Australia has an increased demand for environmental specialists & maintenance staff, Victoria on the other hand needs more surveyors, underground miners & geotechnical engineers.

Similarly, Queensland is in need of miners & maintenance crews after both the coal & hard rock mines responded positively to the high global demand for commodities.

The survey revealed openness with which the companies are accepting international workers. It stated, “In many states… companies are becoming more receptive to international applicants, particularly experienced mining engineers, geologists, geotechnical engineers and senior level strategic candidates.”

The mining industry also reported higher wages than similar industries, with about 64% of companies expected to increase salaries from between 3-6%.
