All the talk in Australia is that the job market is very tight because of the current mining boom – particularly in Queensland and Western Australia. That’s certainly true – but what some people don’t realise is that this is actually causing vacancies in other jobs – as existing workers move across to mine sites. For example, some regional areas have extreme difficulty staffing farms because most of their staff have packed their bags and headed to the mines. So even if you have a skill or occupation which is totally unrelated to mining – such as hairdressing – chances are you could score a good job in Australia right now. Talk to us – we have a range of employer clients looking for skilled people right now!!
