Mining jobs to apply for
This page is for those that have bought one of our Underground Training packages, these are the mining jobs to apply for. This page will be updated daily and we recommend you use it to find your mining jobs to apply for. Most employers run ads every couple of weeks for the Nipper, Truck Operator, Diamond Driller Offsider, Agi Operator, Paste Crew and Service Crew jobs.
To cast the widest net, you need to apply for all the ads for these jobs no matter how much experience the ad asks for. It’s best to do it daily as the jobs come up on Seek. Setting aside 30 minutes is normally enough, just don’t stop applying until you are on site in your first job. If you are time poor then you can use the weekly job hunt videos, these are the links below.
If you haven’t already signed up to one of the training packages and want to have a go at getting in yourself. Then it doesn’t cost much or take long to teach. There is 50 hours of important information you need to learn. You can use the DIY Introduction to Underground Mining package to do it. It will not only make it much easier to get a start but it will ensure you have all the information and tools you need to make a career out of it. Giving yourself a head start climbing the crew ladder into the $700 to $2000 a day jobs like Charge Up, Longhole, Bogger and Jumbo.
You see for all the employers, teaching someone to drive the truck is easy part. Teaching them enough about how the mine works, so they can be left alone to drive the truck on their own, that’s the hard part and why there is a high turnover of new starters. This is why there are all the job ads above.
So, if you can show the employer that you know how their mine works and what’s going to be expected of you working on their mine site, then you have something to offer them. Showing the employer that you know how the system works is huge and when I say “system”, I’m talking about the culture, language, employment process, everything that makes up the work environment. This is all about setting yourself up for success in the industry and being ready to be thrown in the deep end.
If you want some help getting your start then checkout the Workready package. It offers a full resume and interview prep service, offering extra support learning the mining information and making a plan to get yourself in. If you want to talk to one of the Underground Training shift bosses about how to get into the industry then leave your details in the link.
