How to Improve Your Chances of Getting an Expat Job in Australia

19/12/2012 01:51 PM / Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
Some of our most popular posts this year have been about the engineering skills shortage and how Australia is looking to migrant workers and temporary skilled workers to fill the gap. We hear from many frustrated engineers who would like to work in Australia but are having a hard time breaking in. This post lends insight into why and what candidates can do to secure an assignment in Australia.




Keeping the Black Dog at Bay During the Holidays

19/12/2012 01:44 PM / Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
The holidays are upon us and with it comes a busy season of family gatherings, parties, work functions and social obligations. In Australia, the summer holiday moves into high gear with school getting out and a lot of people taking annual leave. But this time of the year can be a difficult time and crazy rosters and world events might leave you feeling lonely and stressed despite the festive season. The black dog of depression is lurking around.




The Hard Part About Holiday Rosters and the FIFO Life

17/12/2012 05:00 AM / Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
Did you hear about the warning not to call in sick during the holidays issued to FIFO workers in the Pilbara last week? The news was widely reported in industry publications and mainstream media. The gist of the story was an employer told FIFO workers the only excuse they had for not showing to work over the holidays was ‘death’ and they expected to see a death certificate to prove it. While it brewed up a small storm of criticism about whether it was ethical or even legal to issue such a notice, it’s important to understand the motivation behind the not so tongue-in-cheek warning.





Demand for Engineering Skills on the Rise in Australia

We’ve reported before about the engineering skills shortage in Australia but a new paper from Engineers Australia shows demand for engineers continues unabated. The Changes in the Australian Engineering Labour Market report release last week shows an increase of more than 30% 2006 and 2011.





Chevron Gorgon Project Hits Employment Milestone

05/12/2012 05:00 AM / Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
Last week WA Department of Commerce Minister Simon O’Brien recognised an employment milestone connected with the Chevron Gorgon project. The CB&I Kentz Joint Venture hired their 1,000th employee. The contract, valued at $2.2 billion will eventually create more than 1,650 local jobs. The big news, in our opinion, has to do with future traineeships and apprenticeships on the project.

30/11/2012 05:00 AM / Mining Oil and Gas Jobs

Research Says Skilled Migration Major Benefit to Regional Areas

27/11/2012 05:00 AM / Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
New research focused on the impact skilled migration has on regional Australia reports positive results. Dr. Rosylin Cameron led a research team at CQUniversity who studied the Gladstone region in Queensland. Like many regional towns in Queensland and Western Australia, Gladstone is experiencing high demand for skilled workers on the back of the resources sector, specifically in construction jobs for CSG/LNG projects. 

The Gladstone Skilled Migration Research Report investigated economic, social and cultural contributions of skilled migrants and their families. The study proves how crucial skilled migrants are in resource regions.
