Industry Speaks: Two Essential Credentials for Getting Hired

10/04/2012 05:00 AM / Kyla Jones, Site Director, AMMA Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
If ‘How do I break into mining?’ is the most frequent question we hear, the second most common query we get is about tickets, licenses and certificates. We asked industry employers what they would recommend we tell jobseekers who wonder what investment helps their employment chances and which don’t. Now we know two things for sure.

If you haven’t heard, the inaugural AMMA Jobs Expo is on its way to Perth. Held over three days in May, we’re planning on making it the most informative event of its kind. But we need your help.

Is the Skills Shortage a Hoax?

03/04/2012 05:00 AM / AMMA Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
How come if Australia is experiencing a skills crisis, the only jobs being advertised are for engineers? If you're working in the trades or working as a labourer, it would be easy to think it's all a hoax. While the media has made much of the skills shortage, a lot of people just aren't seeing evidence to support the claims. All that is about to change.  

Week in Review – 31 March 2012

31/03/2012 05:00 AM / AMMA Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
Shortages, shortage and more shortages was the theme this week in the resources news. NECA is predicting future shortages in electrician supply and Engineers Australia is saying we won’t have enough engineers, either. Rio Tinto is looking to sell their diamond mines and a federal inquiry into FIFO comes to WA.

This may seem obvious but it needs to be said

30/03/2012 05:00 AM / AMMA Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
We speak with jobseekers every single day all over Australia and know a lot of people are struggling to break into the resource industry. Some of you are even feeling a little desperate about the whole situation. We’re seeing one behaviour on a fairly regular basis that will guarantee you’ll never get a job.

19 Skills Experiencing Permanent Vacancies

29/03/2012 05:00 AM / AMMA Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
We’ve been reporting on critical skills needed by the Australian resource industry. The Mining Industry Skills Centre has produced a comprehensive report called the Heartbeat Project which delves into future workforce demand. While common themes in the skills shortage have emerged, we think it’s helpful to understand just how these critical skills rank in terms of permanent vacancies.

Skills Vacuum Created by Ageing Workforce

27/03/2012 05:00 AM / AMMA Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
An ageing workforce in the resource industry presents challenges for employers and opportunities for jobseekers. It won’t be long before new skills enter the critical need stage due to the high percentage of over 55’s currently employed.

The Big 5 Critical Skill Sets in the Resource Industry

23/03/2012 05:00 AM / AMMA Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
Five skills sets are considered to be extremely critical for the long-term growth of the resource industry. Workers wanting oil and gas jobs, energy jobs or mining jobs in Australia would be well advised to pursue education or training to qualify for one of these roles. Additionally, a worker with some industry experience or skills in any of these areas may want to consider up-skilling or re-skilling to complete a qualification.

Critical Job Roles Needed by the Resource Industry

22/03/2012 05:00 AM / AMMA Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
The resource industry in Australia has undertaken a special project to help facilitate workforce planning. Part of this project is to identify critical job roles for the industry and, significantly, the key roles suffering the most exposure when it comes to current supply.
