Australian Mining Catering Jobs and EmploymentIf you're looking for a catering job in the Australia mines, there's a lot you should know before you apply for these positions. The hospitality sector of the mining industry is ver y sought after and is a popular choice for people wanting a less physical mining job. There are many positions available in the hospitality department, including jobs for Kitchen hands, Chefs / Cooks, Catering Assistants, Coffee Baristas, Food and Beverage Attendants, Counter Hands, etc.
Mining is a secure and long-standing industry that is likely to be around for years to come, as it is only getting stronger. There are plenty of options for people looking for catering jobs, and similar positions, as most of the workers live on-site for weeks at a time and need someone to cook them healthy and filling meals. There are often entry-level catering positions available for the right applicants, so if you don't have a background in catering but would like to give it a try, you could always look in to an entry-level role in the mines. This could lead to a highly-skilled position if you work hard and show commitment. The pay is also great and there is generous time off the mine site.
If you don't live near a mine site that's hiring people for catering roles, you might like to consider a FIFO )fly in/fly out) position, which lets you fly to the mine site at the start of your weeks on, and fly home at the end. Many people are employed in FIFO roles as it means they don't have to relocate on a permanent basis.
A day in the catering department would usually include preparing three main meals for employees as well as making drinks and snacks readily available. Also you could be expected to clean and prepare the cafeteria area for meals and help clean up. If you're considering getting into the mining industry, now is a great time to do so, for both skilled and inexperienced workers. Contact Mining Australia to see how we can help.
