Australian Mining Open Pit and EmploymentWith a giant mining boom underway in Australia, mostly concentrated in Western Australia and Queensland, there is a great need for skilled and unskilled workers to work in open-pit mines. There are a range of positions open to people who want to work in the open-pit mines, such as truck driving, drilling, trades roles, administration, management roles and jobs in the hospitality sector, to name a few. You can't expect to secure a job in the open-pit mines unless you know how to go about it the right way. Mining Australia can inform you of the requirements for each position, what you can expect to be paid, what the travel and accommodation is like, and many other facets of mining employment.
Working in the open-pit mines is a very demanding job with long shifts out in the open through all weather conditions. It is also a very rewarding career though, where you can work your way up through the roles and earn big money, even for entry-level positions. In most remote locations, mine companies will pay you well to compensate for being located so far away from any cities or towns. In most cases, the mine company will initially set up a small town that will include all of the amenities that you require such as food, accommodation, beverages, social activities, and other activities to keep you entertained when you are not working.
If you don't live near a mining town but are still interested in finding a job in the open-pit mines, you may want to consider applying for FIFO (fly in/fly out) positions, which let you fly from your home to the mine at the start of your weeks on, and fly home for your time off. This is a great option if you don't want to relocate ot a remote place but want the benefits of working in the open-pit mines.
