Careers in the mining industry

The mining industry is renowned for providing stable and rewarding job opportunities to candidates from a wide range of disciplines and education levels. Mining jobs are often well-paid, provide opportunities to take on additional overtime shifts, enable workers to utilize and develop transferable skills and with experience, progress through different mining jobs throughout the candidate’s career.

Mining employs a surprisingly diverse range of professions – ranging from highly qualified technical and engineering mining jobs to management jobs such as project management, health and safety, and compliance to construction mining and trade jobs such as fitters, diesel mechanics, boiler makers, electricians, surveyors, drillers, shotfirers and drill & blast specialists, maintenance and shutdown roles, as well as qualified operators of heavy equipment including drills, haul trucks, dozers and excavators.
