Welcome to Episode 3 of Mining Jobs TV. Hi my name is Matt and I will be speaking to you today about unskilled and entry level jobs in the Australian mining industry.
Mining Jobs TV is a FREE online TV channel presenting regular episodes where we will discuss mining jobs and tips that will help you to secure a job in the industry.
You may have probably heard the stories about a friend of a friend who is earning over $100,000 a year on a mine somewhere in Western Australia or Queensland and wondered how you could get a mining job too.
Entry level or unskilled jobs, like trade assistants or plant operators are hard to get now as every man and his dog are applying for them. The best way to get these jobs would be to move out to the little mining towns and live there and register with all the labour hire companies, there are hundreds of them.
Trades people like fitters, welders, boilermakers and electricians still have a fairly good chance of picking up work on mining sites. If you don't have a trade, doing a rigging or scaffolding course would give you a good chance at getting a job, the courses are only about 4 weeks long, but they are fairly expensive.
Other unskilled or basic jobs available include cleaners, laundry workers and kitchen hands which is not difficult if you have hospitality training and experience.
Talking to people who are currently working on mining sites can be a big help, especially if you have no previous experience or qualifications. It would be even better if you could get in contact with expats from your own country who are working on mining sites. They can let you know who to call and what you need to do.
If you are inexperienced and unqualified you need to be fit and ready for physical labour. The work will be very repetitive and routine based with long 12 hour days, so you really need to be mentally prepared, as well as physically.
Some mines will have a very high turnover of workers. This is because many people go to work on the mines not knowing what to expect. Because there can be such a high turnover, you may not start earning big money straight away, although your wages won't be small either. Once you've proved yourself to be a reliable worker, your wages should increase.
Most mining companies will run police checks, as well as drug and alcohol tests. Even though there are wet mess areas on-site where workers can unwind and drink alcohol, they do have to drink in moderation and be fit-for-work before their shift starts
Shutdowns are exactly what the name suggests. Every now and then mining sites need to shut down for upgrades, maintenance or repairs and they usually hire people temporarily to work during shut downs. A lot of the work is unskilled and doesn't last very long, so it's great for backpackers who want to keep on travelling and don't want to make a full-time commitment. It's also a great way to get your foot in the door and gain valuable on-site experience.
To do certain mining jobs you will need to get licences and training, or 'tickets' as they are more commonly known. There are lots of different types of tickets depending on what type of work you're going to do. Some tickets can be very expensive and mines in different states require different tickets, so you really need to do your research before you start spending money on courses.
Don't think that just because you're female that the mining companies and recruiters won't consider you. The mining industry in Australia is becoming increasingly gender neutral. It's not just cooking and cleaning jobs either on offer for women either; more and more women are working on Australian mining sites, and in some cases, companies even prefer women for certain jobs. For example, a popular job for women on mining sites is driving a dump truck because research has shown that women are easier on the multi-million dollar equipment yet still get the job done.
It's most important to ensure you have the resume professionally worded and designed to stand out from your competitors.

Even though the minimum investment required for a Platinum VIP account is high, the trading features can more than justify the initial investment barrier. The only concern is that traders may not feel comfortable depositing large amounts of money at FiNMAX without any proper regulatory protection. Regardless, the company has managed to steer clear of any large controversies, which does make it a bit more dependable than brokers that are located in tax havens.
FiNMAX Demo Trading Account.
FiNMAX offers a limited period demo that is valid only for a week, which is not a whole lot of time to learn the concept in detail. Although FiNMAX has limited its demo account to users, it is far better than avoiding a demo offering altogether. Seasoned traders can use the demo trading account to gauge the efficiency of the platform, while amateur traders can also use the demo period to familiarise themselves with the binary options market and put on a few trades to gain market exposure. Nevertheless, we would have appreciated if the company had provided a bit more time with its free demo account option.
FiNMAX clients can make use of the vast resources for trading, which includes advanced trading charts, personal account manager, and market analytics. Larger account holders have the convenience of trading with signals or use social trading platforms to copy trades from successful traders. The broker also provides market analysis, trading news, webinars, strategy, and VIP trader education. FiNMAX has one of the best trader-oriented resources, which can provide a highly beneficial platform for binary options traders.
