Finding unskilled mining jobs in Australia

by Ross

I am from New Zealand and went to Australia first in 2005 and looked for a mining job in Australia. I went around the agencies in Perth but they all wanted experienced people. In the process I wasted 1000 dollars in accommodation and food.

I then went out to Kalgoorlie and still had no luck. I luckily remembered a mate was in W.A. and to my luck he was in Kalgoorlie. Over the phone he gave me some company names that were hiring. I went around and had a full time job in 5 minutes...

I know how hard it can be to get a job and I have put this website up to help other Aussies and Kiwis to get a job in the mines.

Good luck,

Editor's Note:
It's taken me a loooong time but I finally took the time to look at what Ross is offering. I was positively surprised, so much so that I wrote a detailed review of his guide. You can read it here:

Review of Rosco's Mining Employment Guide

PS.: And people, please stop flooding the comments with applications for mining jobs. In case it isn't obvious, this isn't a mining recruitment site!
When you leave your contact details and email address you only invite spammers to contact you.
You don't get a mining job by posting a badly spelled comment on some random website. (Not even after I cleaned up most of your spelling and grammar...)

Looking for a start
by: Sharalee

Hi Everyone,

I am a 33yr old female looking for a head start in the mines, working as a cleaner/kitchen hand etc. I am more than willing to be trained, and I will stick to the job and contract for the full amount of time I am employed for. I am also willing to accept an extended contract after the first initial work period. I do not mind if it is fly in fly out or whether it is an on site job, with accommodation. If anyone can give me a head start I would appreciate it. I am also willing to work for long lengths of time without a break. Currently living in Taranaki, New Zealand and can leave on very short notice.

My expertise involves welding with stick, MIG and submerged arc welding on coco bogies of Indian diesel locomotives, side frames of coaches of Indian railways, air reservoirs, and many jobs of critical works for which I have been suitably awarded and certified as a qualified welder by the Indian railways. Have also been awarded by the Indian railways for meritorious service in 1988, 1991 and 2005.

I am a qualified welder having done my act apprenticeship in the indian railways workshops in 1984. I have also completed my submerged arc welding course in adavanced training institute at Chennai in 1990. Hence I am a aptly qualified and experienced welder with about 20 years of experience in welding in the railways.

I am earnestly seeking a sponsor who would assist me with a visa 457. I did work in Brisbane in 2008, but due to constraints with my ailing mother I was forced to return to India, and later my visa was cancelled. Repeated requests to the immigration department to revoke my visa yielded negative results and hence my visa was cancelled in April 2009.
If provided a visa will I be highly obliged to work and share all my experience with your esteemed company.
Thank you very much,
M F. Fernandez

I am finding it very had to get into the mining industry in OZ, while living in NZ. I moved over to Perth two years ago, and had a job in the industry but there was an overflow of workers and got told all the wrong things so I returned to NZ after 5 months.

I work for SGS NZ LTD at the port of Lyttelton Christchurch. We do all the maintenance for Exxon Mobil,Shell & BP Oil. I am keen to move back to Perth to get into the mining as a workshop T/a or even a kitchen hand. So if there is any one out there that could HELP me out that would be awesome.

I have family living in the area of Langford , south of the river.

It can be very frustrating but dont give up as there are big fish to catch.
by: steve

Hello everyone,

I have recently arrived in townsville and eventually ended up with a local job which is a stepping stone to a job in the mining industry.

I am 55, self taught, self employed for most of my working life. I do not have many tickets for mining but have experience in commercial cleaning,and kitchen work. I would be okay in a dump truck as training is often provided and like many parts of the mining industry it has a huge staff turnover.

Accurate information is very difficult to come by, applying for jobs on line is often a joke, so I've found that its who you know that helps. I'm very happy to share info. I've not found a good forum, chat room, whirlpool in Queensland.

The inductions and safety courses are changing constantly,and providing the right information is difficult, but there is a way through it all.

I am the Same as Everyone Else

Give me a chance!
by: Hopefully Soon

Hi, I am posting and emailing at least 50 CV's a week. I have a strong work ethic and till date no mining company wants a person with no mine experience. One minute you have companies saying that go and do this course and that course that costs about 4000.00 which I don't have and other mine companies say don't do the courses.

They advertise everywhere, workers wanted. Well HERE I AM!! Just give me a toe in the door. The TV advertisements say 3500 jobs but only for people with a minimum of 6 months mine experience.

Once again I ask HOW DO I GET THAT EXPEREINCE IF NO ONE WILL HIRE A CLEANSKIN??? Yes it does get frustrating but I carry on with the ambition of working in the mines. It'll not just be a job for me but a new career after 20 years in Defence.

Will someone give me a break into the industry please??? Also I have been told you have to know someone in the industry of which can help you obtain an unskilled cleanskin position. Well, I will not give up but it is VERY hard to gain that 6 months experience when no mine will let even your toe in the door?

Can anyone suggest anything else or give me a break for a new career?

Looking for work in any mine sites FIFO
by: James B


I'm looking to get in on the mining boom but unfortunately I have no experience working within a mine site environment. I live in South Australia but am prepared to work in any mine site provided it is FIFO or with reasonable driving distance (no more than six hours).

I have relevant and current tickets: Dogging (DG), Elevated Work Platform (WP), Scissor and Boom lift (Yellow Card), Forklift (LF), Truck License (MR), Construction Industry White Card, Working at Heights and Senior First Aid.

I also have a strong desire to work within the mining industry and a good work ethic, however, trying to find a job without the relevant "work experience" is difficult.

I am currently in the process of trying to get some unpaid work experience with local crane companies in the hope that this may help my situation.

If anyone has any other ideas which may help or knows of companies which will employ people with limited experience, please contact me via email at

Any info would be of help.

I will secure a career in the mines!!!
by: Gareth Lyndon

I am a 36 year old kiwi male and I will work in the mines by Dec 2013! Currently I am a self employed owner driver contracted until Jul 2013.

Like you guys, I have no experience in the mines but I will not let that hinder me. My plan is to approach a landfill or quarry here in NZ and offer my time (for free) in the hope that I gain some experience either on a dump truck or setting up explosives (shot firing). I have approx 18 months so if I can get one day a week over the next 12 months experience then my resume can say 12 months mining experience.

I have licence classes 1,2,3,4,5L with DG.
I am "Blinds Disposal" qualified meaning I have explosive experience destroying unexploded ammunition etc. I have surveying experience with GPS, Theodolite, Goniometer and Lazer range Finders. I am first aid qualified and am a volunteer fire fighter. I am comfortable in any working environment and no stranger to working in remote locations with operational tours to East Timor, Malaysia and Bosnia.

I enjoy being part of a motivated hard working team and can work just as hard on my own for extended periods of time. The last four years has seen me operating on my own for 12 hours a day. Attaining the rank of Staff Sergeant in the NZ Army illustrates leadership in a high stress competitive environment. I demonstrate integrity and have been awarded the Long Service and Good Conduct Medal.

NZ has gone 'soft' and it is too hard to get ahead now-a-days. The public are held to ransom by the large corporations that can charge us whatever they like for meat, fruit & vege, milk, bread, fuel etc etc. If we are lucky enough to have any money left then the government will take it by high income taxes, GST, ACC levies, RUC, etc etc.
Australia, here I come.

Info For People from US
by: USwelder

This is for people in the United States. I am not sure if it applies to other countries.

I have been doing TONS of research and reading about flying to Australia and working out there. I've found that in order for anyone, in the US, to work in another country we have to obtain a work visa. I'm not 100% sure yet, but I believe we have to be certified in a trade with at least one year verifiable experience being certified, then take a government test in order to recieve the work visa.

I don't know if this applies to all trades, but this is what I've found for me, being a welder/metal worker.

My plans of going in the near future are looking bad as I am not a certified welder :,( but I hope this helps someone else on their way to the mines!

If anyone has anymore info or if I am wrong about this plz plz plz contact me and let me know. I am still trying to find contact info for government agencies where I can talk to someone and ask questions I really can't find answers to.

Heaps of Jobs...Guys!
by: Kiwi gal

Hi guys,

It may seem hard to get a foot in as a cleaner/ kitchen hand/ cook. I had no experience what so ever and no tickets or standard 11 but I was lucky and got a job as a remote cleaner; 2 weeks on 2 weeks off or if wanted, 1 week off. But it is best to have standard 11 food safety cert and first aid cert to have a far more better chance.

There will be an over load of workers needed at the Carmichael coal mine. This is where I work. It is about 2 hours out from Clermont.

Here are some remote catering companies Kjm contractors/ and cater care will be taking over the new Carmichael camp.

Heaps of jobs guys...get in while you can. Maybe see you all there :)

Hi there,

I am Piers aged 43 who currently lives in the UK.

I wondered if there was a mining company who would be able to take me on before I'm too old to apply (45). Furthermore, I have lived and worked in Australia back in 2000/01 and really enjoyed it.

It would be really great if someone out there would make contact.

Watch Out
by: Anonymous

So many web links promising jobs in the mines. DO NOT PAY FOR THEM TO HOLD YOUR INFO. Because that is all that they will do. The media hype on mining is exactly that. There maybe a lot of jobs but it is VERY HARD to get into them.

I have family connections and still can't get in. If you are young you may need to think twice as it is a very remote lifestyle. Working up to 10+ hours daily sometimes three weeks straight. My daughter worked 8 weeks with one day here and there.

I know that Sedexo and Spotless get a lot of the cleaning catering contracts. If you are still keen then keep applying with persistence.

Good luck to all while the boom lasts, get in while you can.

Canadian who has been to Australia and has a Dream to Work in the Mines under Sponsorship
by: Anonymous

Hey everyone. I have been in Australia for two years and just returned home to Canada not too long ago. I really miss the country and its people very much.
I found out about the mines too late and really want to work in the mines under a sponsorship contract via Hunter Valley area but at this point will work anywhere in Australia. I don't have any experience, but I am a quick learner and extremely hard working. I have plenty of Australian references to back me up on this.
I wanted to know if anyone at all knew a way and or company that would be willing to take on and give a chance to a foreign guy hardworking young man who has nothing to lose and a lot to gain by coming back to Australia. I hear that there are some foreigner's that are taking advantage and that is upsetting for men and woman like me who really want the opportunity and a career in the mines.
I and my references can only vouch that I am not like them and want this badly and wish to make a dream come true. So if there is anyone who can help me, please point me in the right direction. I am hungry for an opportunity.

Thanks for reading.
