Staying in front of a highly mobile workforce in a candidate-driven market will be a challenge for the entire resource industry

Brunel has joined forces with remuneration experts REMSMART to deliver a groundbreaking new Workforce Insight Report, which provides a comprehensive snapshot of employment trends within Australia’s Mining, Oil & Gas and Renewable sectors.


Drawing on data from a broad cross-section of resource industry companies, the report provides detailed workforce and remuneration statistics, while identifying industry-wide trends and key sector-by-sector challenges.

What is unique about the report?

Brunel, in partnership with REMSMART, is uniquely positioned to provide a cross-sector analysis of Australia’s resources industry. While salary guides and workforce reports are common, most tend to focus on either one sector in particular, or are so wide lens as to not provide much detail at all.


Brunel’s Workforce Insight Report provides a unique and in-depth view across the entire resources industry, focusing on Mining, Oil & Gas and Renewable Energy to provide multi-lens analysis that is still detailed enough to be useful.


The resources industry is in a state of rapid evolution, with high levels of change and transition between sectors. The ability to glean insights across Mining, Oil & Gas and Renewables, to compare these areas against each other and the broader workforce, is highly valuable in our current market.
