THE Australian minerals industry is Now Hiring.
That is the message of the Minerals Council of Australia’s (MCA) Now Hiring campaign, aimed at recruiting 26000 skilled workers for the mining industry over the next decade.
The campaign targets skilled tradespeople as the mining boom continues to increase demand for skilled workers.
It includes advertising in radio, newspapers and billboards in major cities and follows national career expo presentations throughout Australia.
The industry has estimated it will need an estimated 70,000 additional workers by 2015.
“We must attract skilled tradespeople if the industry and, indeed, Australia, is to fully capitalise on the opportunities of the strongest global market growth in a generation,” MCA chief executive Mitchell Hooke said.
The campaign website includes jobs advertisements and careers advice for skilled tradespeople interested in a career in the minerals industry.
