Australian Mining Remote Location Jobs and EmploymentMining in Australia has never been better, and with mines cropping up all over the country, there are plenty of opportunities for more workers. There is especially a need for workers in remote locations throughout Australia, as it's more difficult for employers to get people to work in these out-of-the-way places. This often means the mines that are situated in remote locations pay more, as workers have to go out of their way and spend weeks away from their families in order to keep these mines running.
If you are seriously contemplating finding a mining job in a remote location, then there may be a few questions you want answered first. Some common issues people want to know about are the pay, what training is involved, which costs are covered by the employers, what the travel and accommodation options are, and what the FIFO (fly in/fly out) arrangements involve. People also ask us which positions would most suit them, as many people are new to the mining industry and want to transfer their skills to a new role. There are entry-level roles often available in both remote locations and more central areas of Australia, which we can also advise you on.
Working in the mines is a very rewarding job where most companies pay more for the same position than you would get elsewhere. In some cases, you can be paid up to $100,000 a year for operating heavy machinery or doing other highly-skilled work. EVen the entry-level jobs are known for their great pay. In most remote locations, the mine company will initially set up a small town that will include all of the amenities that you're used to and would find in a larger town, such as food, social activities, accommodation, beverages, and other activities to keep you entertained on your time off work.
