Mining Jobs TV Episode 2 - Mining Career Opportunities
 
05:19
MINING JOBS TV Episode 2: Mining Career Opportunities Welcome to the second episode of Mining Jobs TV. My name is Matt and I will be talking about career opportunities that are available in the Australian mining industry. Mining Jobs TV is a FREE online TV channel presenting regular episodes where we will discuss mining jobs and tips that will help you to secure a job in the industry. We understand that many people these days are looking at getting ahead financially and seeking career changes - for that reason mining is a great opportunity for many people, regardless of your skills and experience. You could be forgiven for thinking that mining is a fairly specialised profession and that to get a job in a mine, you need to have worked in one before. That may sometimes be the case, but as you'll soon discover, not always. The reality is that across the board, there are probably just as many jobs that DON'T require experience as those that do. Obviously, there are some positions that require certain levels of experience or qualifications that you may not possess. For example, you can't go from being a builder's labourer to a Principal Mine Geologist overnight. And it's highly unlikely that you'll be expected to progress from working in an accountant's office one day, to setting the explosives in an open cut coal mine the next. Keep in mind that the demand for people, both skilled and unskilled is huge, and opportunities exist across all levels. It is in every respect a jobseekers' market. You just need to know what you're looking for, and more importantly, how to look for it. In the last year, mining and resources jobs in Australia grew by an impressive 13% - a figure unmatched by any other job sector. By location, jobs have grown by 5% in Western Australia, 21% in Queensland and a whopping 42% in New South Wales. Simple mathematics will tell you that there are just not enough qualified or experienced people to fill those numbers. If you want to work in resources, it pays to be resourceful. A great way to start is by looking for jobs in mining that relate somehow to what you're doing now -- anything from cleaning to hospitality or admin people have all got skills the mining companies are looking for. The Seek.com.au website will actually help you do it. You start by selecting 'Mining, Resources & Energy' in the Classification box and then you can drill down from there, looking at current jobs that appear for your perusal. You will see that there are many skills and qualifications that are very transferrable from other industries to mining. Mines need engineers, plumbers, electricians, builders, boilermakers, welders, mechanics, IT personnel, HR people, medical staff, logistics experts, heavy vehicle drivers to name just a few. Australian mining companies employees people across a broad range of areas from unskilled labourers to mining engineers. There are also opportunities in administrative, human resources and management positions together with numerous trade related opportunities such as Trades Assistant, Boilermakers, Carpenters, Welders, Electricians and Plumbers. But what if you don't have any skills or experience that relate to the mining industry? Fear not - there are still loads of entry level mining for you to choose from and you'll find many of them on the SEEK website. You'll soon discover that mines need a whole host of people like drillers' offsiders, administrative assistants, cooks and catering staff, cleaners and maintenance staff, childcare workers and general labourers. And many of these positions require no experience whatsoever. All you need to bring is a sense of adventure, flexibility and a willingness to work. As you have probably heard, mining jobs are achievable yet very competitive. It is not unusual for HR Managers to receive 500 or 1000 plus resumes for an advertised vacancy ... so it's most important to ensure you have the resume professionally worded and designed to stand out from your competitors. We highly recommended Mining Resumes to prepare your resume as they are the industry leaders in resume preparation for clients seeking jobs in the mining and oil & gas industry. They can be contacted on 1300 RESUME or have a look at their website miningresumes.com with package details and samples browse that demonstrate their quality and experience. I enjoyed talking to you today about mining jobs and hope that you have found this episode helpful and I look forward to talking to you again in Episode 3 where I will provide an insight into unskilled and entry level mining jobs.

My name is Matt and today I will be talking about 'working in the Australian mining industry.' Mining Jobs TV is a FREE online TV channel presenting regular episodes where we will discuss mining jobs and tips that will help you to secure a job in the industry. Mining in Australia is a significant primary industry and major contributor to the Australian economy with many different ores and minerals are mined throughout the country. The good news is that the Australian mining industry employees people across a broad range of areas from unskilled labourers to mining engineers. There are also opportunities in administrative, human resources and management positions together with numerous trade related opportunities such as Trades Assistant, Boilermakers, Carpenters, Welders, Electricians and Plumbers. As you are probably aware mining jobs are achievable yet very competitive. It is not unusual for HR Managers to receive 500 or 1000 plus resumes for an advertised vacancy ... so it's most important to ensure you have the resume professionally worded and designed to stand out from your competitors. A talented Resume Writer will be skilled in selling your skills and wording the document in a way that includes all important key words. This will give you the best chance of getting one of these jobs and they will also see you are serious about a career in mining due to the efforts you have made in presenting a polished document that clearly states what you have to offer. We highly recommended Mining Resumes to prepare your resume as they are the industry leaders in resume preparation for clients seeking jobs in the mining and oil & gas industry. They can be contacted on 1300 RESUME or have a look at their website miningresumes.com with package details and samples you look at. Many Australians want to know what type of entry level jobs are available in the mining industry that don't require a trade qualification. Both men and women are sought after by mining companies offering jobs such as Cleaner, Utilities, Trades Assistant, Service Crew, Catering, Kitchen Hand, Utilities and Laundry Work. Some of these jobs will require previous experience in areas such as cleaning, catering and hospitality but don't necessarily require previous experience working on mine sites. The main skills and attributes the mining companies are looking for include: - An understanding and commitment to workplace safety - Willingness to travel or work away from home for extended periods - Ability to complete additional courses or training - Strong work ethic and willingness to work 12 hour shifts - Flexible and adaptable approach to work - Capacity to work unsupervised and as part of a team - Punctual, reliable - High level of physical health and fitness - Willingness to undertake drug and alcohol testing as mine sites are focused on a high level of safety and you cannot be under the influence of these substances when working on site You may be wondering, how do I find out about these jobs? Mining jobs are all advertised on the careers pages of the major mining companies such as BHP, Rio Tinto and the Compass Group. You can find the companies through Google Search or email us and we will happily provide an up to date list for you. Mining jobs are also advertised on sites such as seek.com.au which is the main job search site in Australia. You can find the jobs by searching under the mining industry section and by typing key words such Dump Truck which will display all the current jobs available relating to dump truck driving. I hope that you have found this episode helpful and I look forward to talking to you again in Episode 2 where I will provide an insight into mining jobs available and where to find them.

Mining companies digging into the benefits of mechanised mining

In many developed and developing countries mining has been a source of high employment. The mining sector has relied on relatively cheap labour to get commodities out of the ground. But that's started to change and many companies see the benefit of mechanization. It's one of the themes at the Mining Indaba taking place in Cape Town this week.

Queensland Dragline: Moving a 3,000 ton giant in half the time
 
02:41
One of the largest mining companies in Queensland, Australia, faced a major challenge. It needed to move a 3,000-ton dragline excavator from one coal mine to another, almost 100 kilometers away. ‘Walking’ there would have caused significant wear-and-tear on the machine, and not allowed the company to take advantage of scheduled rail network shutdowns required to cross critical infrastructure. Mammoet was able to provide a safe, effective solution to load, move and unload the dragline using Self-Propelled Modular Transporters (SPMTs), ensuring the company did not lose out on productivity for this vital piece of mining equipment.

11 - The Australian Carbon Tax Will Cause Job Losses
 
03:12
On the 19th of July in 2011 the National Press Club of Australia held a debate on climate change. I will be analysing the claims Monckton made during the debate and if they are correct or not. In this particular section of the debate Monckton makes the claim that jobs will be lost. However real world examples, and studies, show that those lost jobs are easily replaced by newly created jobs in the renewable energy industry.

Changing the Lives of Indigenous People, Australia
 
01:11
As a long-term operator in the Pilbara of Western Australia, the team at Iron Ore is very aware that Indigenous people in the region experience, on average, higher rates of developmental vulnerability, lower school attendance and high school completion rates and substantially lower annual incomes than non-Indigenous people. Iron Ore’s long-term commitment to contribute to addressing these issues has centred around three key areas: its education-to-employment pipeline; training for employment; and building organisational capacity. As a result, since 2001 the number of Indigenous employees at Iron Ore has increased four-fold. And the numbers continue to grow as a result of the team’s comprehensive approach and the design and delivery of innovative programs. At the end of July 2015, there were 654 Indigenous employees in Iron Ore or 7.6 per cent of the total workforce. The team aspires towards a target of at least 10 per cent by 2020, creating sustainable, positive change in the lives of Indigenous people.

His investment philosophy focuses on combining a sound understanding of industry and company-specific fundamentals with technical analysis to fine-tune the timing of investment decisions in order to maximize portfolio returns. Sam received his B.S. in Honors Geology from the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand. In this interview, Sam offers his take on how the mining sector performed in 2018 and provides his outlook for 2019. Sam discusses why the Aussie mid-cap producers outperformed their North American counterparts last year and whether they might do so again in 2019.

Why Not To Go For Australian PR

Employment or Job Visa for Australia is far rich for the International applicants. The Federal Government of Australia has launched the policy of Temporary Skill Shortage under which 2 levels are contributed STSOL- 2 yrs of Job visa, No PR is allowed) and MLTSSL- Job Visa is allowed for 4 years maximum and PR is allowed after 3 years of Job. Hiring has become costly affair for the Employers in Australia because companies need to pay the Skill Australia Funding (SAF) for each each year AUS$ 1,200 so for four years it comes to AUS$4,800.

"Lima Declaration" Killing Australia's Manufacturing.
 
10:04
The Lima Declaration is an agreement to wind down Australian manufacturing by around 30% and to import that amount from other preferred Countries together with as much primary produce as we can consume. Such as fruit, meat , etc. The 30% was a target that has now blown out, current estimates are that 90% of our production capacity has gone, and our jobs with it. There is no mention in the agreement about what will happen to the Australians who lose their jobs, their factories or their farms, it appears they are expendable. How does The Lima Declaration effect me? Simply 50% of the productive Australian workforce becomes unemployed. Taxes on the remainder in employment increases, to pay for the unemployed With new shortage of income you are forced to buy cheaper — imports, or go without thereby aggravating the spiral of well planned economic transfer (oppression) The New Economic Order is mentioned no less than 21 times in The Lima Agreement, that is what The Lima Agreement is all about, locking the new developing countries into "their" economic trap and "their" plans for total world economic control, at the same time reducing developed countries to third world status, clamping the shackles of International debt on every human being, bringing about total world slavery, and the legally enforceable shackles of debt, chained to the slave master, money power.

Technological Unemployment and Free Pizza
 
07:06
In recent months in Australia, it has become quite clear that many jobs are becoming obsolete due to technological unemployment. That is, unemployment caused by technological advances and the onset of automation. Death of the Driver One example is within the mining industry. Many mining sites now have fully automated trucks that drive themselves along a set route hauling iron ore as required. A once high paying truck driver job has become almost unnecessary as technology improves. I once worked for the Queensland Police Service (between 2007 and 2008) and I recall a number of police officers leaving their $50000 salaries to become truck drivers earning $100000+. Their logic was simple – why do something relatively dangerous and stressful like policing when instead they could be sitting in an air-conditioned cab getting more than twice the salary? It is predicted that by about 2035, there will be no more driving jobs – taxi drivers, truck drivers, couriers – they’ll all be gone. Uber has already been quite honest about it saying they plan to introduce an automated fleet as soon as it’s economically viable. Many observers highlight the negative impact of automation, that is, the large number of job losses. However, I’d like to talk about the many advantages. Benefits of Automation First, automated vehicles will be far safer than their human-driven counterparts. People get tired, distracted, look at their mobile phone, drink-drive, drug-drive, deal with the kids in the back seat, etc. We’re not designed to focus on one task for hours on end. Already the driverless cars being tested on the roads in North America have incredible safety records, so we can only assume that their safety will improve in the upcoming years. I foresee a society where ultimately it will become illegal to physically drive a vehicle due to the inherent danger involved. Once governments see the statistics and realise that humans are causing most of the road fatalities, they’ll be forced to act by a tech-savvy population. Second, the cost of goods and services will come down. If there are no more truck drivers to pay to deliver the groceries to the supermarkets, then ultimately the groceries will cost less. I was recently talking with a friend about automation in the fast food industry. It’s simply a matter of time before fast food restaurants no longer require workers. Hamburgers and French fries will be 100% made by robotic machinery. Technological Unemployment and the Cost of Goods Imagine a large pizza chain, let’s call them Pizza Preppers, who decide to automate their stores. Their pizza dough is made by an automated dough machine, rolled and prepared to an exact specification. The appropriate toppings are automatically cut and placed on the pizza as per the customer’s order. The pizza is put in the oven, cooked, sliced and boxed – all by machine. Finally, automated drones will deliver the pizza right to the customer’s door. All orders and payments will be handled online. When the shop is running low on tomatoes, an order will be placed with the distribution warehouse where a box of tomatoes will be packed onto an automated truck and delivered in an appropriate time-frame. Imagining further into the future, when the distribution warehouse runs low on tomatoes, it will in turn place an order with the farming network. Farms will also be fully automated. Drones will be smart enough to go out into the fields and pick appropriately ripe tomatoes and deliver them to the boxing centre. The boxing centre will automatically box the tomatoes and place them on automated delivery trucks to send to the distribution warehouses. Whenever the drones or trucks are low on power, they’ll automatically return to their charging stations (probably powered by renewable energy) where another fresh drone or truck will take their place. This cycle of demand, production and supply will continue on 24 hours a day with very little need for downtime. Ultimately, Pizza Preppers will realise that their costs have dramatically fallen. Due to competition with other automated pizza chains, they’ll be compelled to lower their prices even further. In Australia 2016, you can already buy a large pizza for $5.00. When automation hits our pizza stores, I imagine the price dropping to $1.00, or maybe even less. Eventually the CEO of Pizza Preppers decides that their costs are so negligible, that they decide that they don’t want money for their pizzas any more and find alternative ways to keep their company profitable (e.g. advertising on their boxes). The only thing they ask is that customers don’t abuse their free pizza policy, so implement measures to counter such abuse ...

Australia Mining Protest - Standing on Sacred Ground
 
01:18
See Aboriginal elders practice ancient rituals and protest government collusion with mining companies that is destroying a sacred river in Australia's Northern Territory. This scene comes from the Islands of Sanctuary episode of the four-part series, Standing on Sacred Ground. The episode also shows Native Hawaiians using indigenous ecological and spiritual practices to restore the sacred island of Kaho`olawe after 50 years of military use as a bombing range. Standing on Sacred Ground chronicles indigenous people in eight communities around the world standing up for their traditional sacred lands in defense of cultural survival, human rights and the environment. Watch them stand against industrial mega-projects, consumer culture, resource extraction, competing religions, tourists and climate change. Standing on Sacred Ground was produced by the Sacred Land Film Project, http://sacredland.org, a project of Earth Island Institute. To deepen public understanding of sacred places, indigenous cultures and environmental justice, the Film Project produces a variety of media and educational materials—films, videos, DVDs, articles, photographs, school curricula and other materials. The Sacred Land Film Project uses journalism, organizing and activism to rekindle reverence for land, increase respect for cultural diversity, stimulate dialogue about connections between nature and culture, and protect sacred lands and diverse spiritual practices.

Roger Atkins - This is our story - Cinema ad
 
02:01
This country's most precious resource is our children, and Australian Mining is helping to unearth their talent. The man who's leading the charge is Roger Atkins. Roger used to drive trucks for a living, but after receiving his Bachelor of Education in 1991, he worked his way to becoming a School Principal in Gladstone. He's now the director of the Queensland Minerals and Energy Academy (QMEA), making Roger the headmaster of Australia's biggest school. Formed in 2005, the QMEA's focus is to help students develop successful careers in the mining industry. The QMEA is a partnership between the Queensland Government and the Queensland Resources Council, working across 34 state, independent and catholic Queensland schools, encompassing over 20,000 high school students. This partnership between school and industry is a world-first that offers Australian students a clear pathway from school to industry. The QMEA operates as a 'virtual' academy whose teams work directly with students and teachers to provide direct access to employment in the resources sector through programs and a niche curriculum across four different pathways - operator, trade, technical and professional. This provides not only the trades people and engineers of tomorrow, but also future HR professionals, environmental specialists, accountants, service staff and much more. As Roger says, "Through the QMEA, local high school students will now have the information, incentive and encouragement they need to forge rewarding careers in a world class local industry". This encouragement exists in the form of several innovative awards and scholarships Roger has introduced with the help of the mining industry. This year, six students were granted QMEA Awards, receiving $2000 scholarships to assist in future study and training in the resources industry. In fact, Roger has forged many firsts, ensuring school kids experience hands-on training by actually getting onto mining sites. This practical experience prior to leaving school has resulted in an 86% retention rate for QMEA apprentices versus the industry standard of 60%. Another great achievement of the QMEA is that it has helped revitalize regional areas by offering local kids long term career prospects in the area they grew up. The QMEA's expansion into the Surat Basin is the perfect example. "We are as excited as the school communities are in recognising the opportunities on offer." This includes various indigenous apprenticeships and traineeships. The area's bright future would not be possible without support from Australian Mining. As Roger says, "We are indebted to our three coal seam gas company sponsors -- Origin Energy, QGC and Santos -- for their significant vote of confidence in the region". The QMEA's success has continued with Xstrata Coal and Wandoan State School recently forming a partnership. The Wandoan Education Partnership is part of Xstrata Coal's commitment the region, providing $720,000 over three years to programs for students at the Wandoan and Taroom State Schools and Miles State High School. Three additional schools are set to come on board in the near future. It's this kind of co-operation between the education department and industry that will help prevent a skills shortage in the mining sector, providing jobs for plenty of Australians. Roger says it best; "there is no better fit for the future than home-grown talent and expertise." Twenty years ago, Roger Atkins drove trucks across the resource regions of Queensland. Now, with the help of Australian Mining, he's driving the future of Australia in the same area.
