The mining sector is at the forefront of the modern world in which we live, supporting an industry that provides thousands of jobs in all parts of the world. It deals with the discovery and extraction of minerals, metals and other materials that are vital to the way we live, and the sector as a whole plays a crucial role in the national economies of a wide variety of countries.

Materials such as coal, bauxite, phosphate rock, iron, gypsum, cobalt, lithium, nickel, copper, gold, lead, silver and more often require a great deal of complex effort and organisation when extracted, and as a result the industry offers a diverse range of employment opportunities across the globe. The job market is also a constantly shifting entity that has to respond quickly to changes in demand and availability of resources.

Among the many jobs roles available in mining you’ll find the likes of analysts, labourers, drivers, heavy plant operators, training coordinators, site managers, drillers, assembly workers, engineers, geophysicists, project managers, purchasers, warehouse operators, mechanics, metallurgists, electricians, compliance managers, health & safety officers and more.

Supporting an industry that has been around for centuries

And one of the more pleasing aspects of working in this fast-paced and demanding sector is the ability to transfer skill sets from one employer or one location to another. Vacancies exist in mines, quarries and development projects in all regions, including the Middle East, North America, South-East Asia, Europe, Africa and elsewhere. Mining in one form or another has been taking place for hundreds of years and it continues to play an important role in the world of commerce.
