Mining, resources and energy job advertisements up 35%

Mining, resources and energy continues to be the jobs category recording the strongest growth in advertisements on recruitment portal, SEEK.

Up to the end of March 2018, job opportunities in mining, resources and energy were 35 per cent higher on SEEK than 12 months earlier.

The growth in this area has slowed, however, with SEEK reporting last month that mining, resources and energy advertisements were 45 per cent higher year-on-year.

Despite the rate of expansion in mining, resources and energy declining, it is still by far the standout category on SEEK in terms of growth.

The next best category is science and technology, with 20 per cent year-on-year growth. The engineering category was third on SEEK’s latest standings with 18 per cent growth.
