Week in Review - 10 March 2012

Posted: 10/03/2012 5:00:00 AM by AMMA Mining Oil and Gas Jobs
Filed under: Job-seekers, Mining, Oil-and-gas, AWRA

International Women’s Day drove a lot of news this week. AMMA announced their new Way Forward paper, the Women in Resources awards were announced and lots of coverage over wage disparity between men and women was reported. New projects are on the cards and the mining and resources jobs are on the increase even as other sectors experience a shrinking jobs market.

Here’s what we were reading this past week:

Careers and Industry Guide

The Australian

  • Recruitment boom for the mining sector - SIGN-ON bonuses, lucrative scrip packages and head-hunters aggressively poaching talent from rival operations: these were all hallmarks of the last bull market for equities.
  • Warrior for the workers - DAVE Oliver's transition from the schoolyard to the shopfloor was far from ideal. It was the late 1970s, Bob Hawke ruled the labour movement and 50 per cent of the nation's workers were unionists.

  • Australia considers BHP's Olympic Dam ming development a factSouth Australia’s mineral resources and energy minister, Tom Koutsantonis, said he was confident BHP Billiton will proceed with developing the uranium Olympic Dam open-pit mine, despite the project will cost billions of dollars, reports Reuters.

The West Australian

  • Women still earn less as gap grows - WA continues to have the biggest gender pay gap in the nation, prompting calls for the mining sector to help even out the imbalance through more female recruitment.

  • Celebrations International Women's DayInternational Women’s Day is celebrating the economic, political and social importance of women today with major events and conversations across the country.
