I am looking for some advice. I am presently looking for opportunities te Australia te either the Oil and Gas or Mining industries.

I am presently working te Aberdeen ter Scotland and have 1 year practice spil a Graduate Structural Engineer for an well renowned Oil and Gas service company. I also have a Masters degree te Civil Engineering from the University of Strathclyde te Glasgow.

Is it common for Mining companies or Oil &, Gas companies ter Australia to employ international personnel into their graduate schemes?

If so, what are the best websites for graduate recruitment te Australia?

If not, would you recommend coming to Australia on a working holiday visa and seeking employment from the country itself?

Thanks ter advance,

Hi Craig, thanks for your question. It’ll be a loterijlot warmer overheen here than ter Scotland any day:) I’m originally from Newcastle area ter Northumberland, so I understand cold. OK – to response your question, I would very first come to Australia on a working holiday to get a feel for the place. Two things will come of this. Number 1, it means you can practice the country and determine whether you want to work here or not, because where the mines, oil and gas fields are, it is generally very hot and isolated. Number Two, whilst you are here, you can scope out jobs and get to meet some of the recruiters te the industry. There’s no substitute for a face to face meeting and the fact that you have travelled all the way to Australia, means you are truly committed to seeking out work. You are also very qualified, which is a big plus.

There are a lotsbestemming of websites ter Australia you can check out, mostly I’d go to the online jobs boards like, Indeed, CareerOne, MyCareer, and some of the job aggregator websites like Jora and The best place to commence is to do a keyword search for jobs, something like “civil engineering jobs oil gas”, or “mining engineer jobs western australia”.. something like that.

Te Western Australia you will find a loterijlot of offshore gas and oil fields, especially up the North Westelijk Shelf. Here’s a good listig to be getting on with: oil and gas fields te Western Australia.

There is a lotsbestemming of metal ore mining going on ter Western Australia, ter the Pilbara region. You can find mining companies like Fortescue Metals Group, Rio Tinto, BHP and the fresh Roy Hill mine, which is still te the construction phase. Chevron are also building a large LNG gas plant on Barrow Island ter WA, called the Gorgon Project. It’s bot a bit of a disaster for the company with hefty cost overruns etc,, but I’d recommend you check it out. Here’s a like to the Gorgon Project te Western Australia.

Te the far north of Australia, ter the Northern Territory, there is a meaty LNG project underway called the Ichthys project. For someone of your education and qualifications, I would undoubtedly look into this one. Here’s a listig to the Ichthys webstek where you’ll find a ton of information.

You’ll also find traditional mining jobs on the East coast of Australia. There is a lotsbestemming of coal mining te Fresh South Wales and Queensland too. Mining te thesis areas has bot klapper by the global downturn of late, however, don’t let that waterput you off. Get overheen here, commence knocking on doors, get your face into spil many interviews spil you can, meet people and see the glorious practices Australia has to suggest.

Good luck with everything and I hope I’ve managed to help you ter some way..

P.S. Before I leave behind. If you want to get a working Visa that’s doable, if you want to work here for a while then you’ll have to apply for a 457 visa. This also has the conditions that you are suggested employment from a company who is ready to sponsor you to live here whilst you work. Look into it more by Googling ‘457 visa application Australia’

Prepare your resume and a good voorkant letterteken and begin to introduce yourself to potential employers. You can also begin to research the chemical engineering jobs market on the big jobs boards like SEEK and Indeed.

You may even find that mining is not the very first stepping stone to a job, spil a graduate engineer, you may be more successful slotting into a role te another industry (because you need to work and earn money right?). Get the practice then begin to look earnestly at the mining sector.

Just begin looking at the online jobs boards and gather spil much information about the jobs for graduate chemical engineers spil you can. Begin to recognise what employers are looking for te terms of life abilities spil well spil qualifications. Life abilities are always te high request, because employers want to hire people who ‘getraind’ the culture of their organisation. From our practice te the recruitment industry, through some of our fucking partner organisations, the largest challenges employes face are those from its internal staff.

Hi William, thanks for your question.

The very first act I would take is to embark contacting mining companies ter Australia and tell them exactly what you have told us. It is too risky to budge your family to Australia and then be fighting to find work.

One of the ways you can stir here is to treatment a mining employer spil I said earlier and get them to sponsor you. This normally is a Two year agreement and a 457 visa is issued ter the process. More often than not, only you can come overheen to work, albeit you can check up on that one because I’m not an immigration specialist.

You have 20 years plus mining practice and that is good, your skill voorwaarde be extensive – mining recruiters would like that. The best project of act is to go to the Australian mining jobs boards like,, CareerOne, Simply Hired, etc and begin to look for jobs you can do. This way you will get a feel for the types of jobs on opoffering and how to go about contacting the recruiters who have advertised the job.

Hello Aurel, thanks for your question. It’s never effortless to work te another country and it is no different for Australia. There are immigration and work visa rules to obey with. Basically what you need to do is find employment here, get your employer to opoffering you a sponsorship for about Two years and with that you may get the 457 visa. This visa permits for the employment of those people who have the abilities and practice that can not be sourced from the local Australian workforce.

Hi Harris, look… it’s never effortless to get a commence ter the mines, especially ter 2015. Mining has switched.

No longer can you just turn up for work and expect to have a job te the mines for life – I think wij all agree on that one. It’s good you have your basic rigging and dogging tickets. If you want to indeed increase your chances of a job, then begin off te civil construction, then get more tickets like Work at Heights and Restrained Spaces tickets. Budge into WHS or risk management roles by completing a G2 Risk Assessment course. Thesis courses will increase your skill immensely. The truth is, the more qualifications you have on your resume, the greater the chances of success te a job. Keep your concentrate on getting a begin, but that does not mean hopping into a mining jobs straight away. Commence local, ter construction – then finish toegevoegd courses.

Iam a journeyman plumber and I want a job ter the mines or gas/oil fields how do I get into the industry

Thanks for your question. From my practice, there are a number of ways to get into the industry. Call ter some favours from your friends, ask them if they know anyone who is working te the industry. Go to the mining and resource jobs boards and begin to search for plumbing jobs. Coal seam gas and LNG pipeline construction is enormous te Queensland, that’s where I’d be beginning to look. Do some searches on SEEK or for the keywords “plumbing mining” or “pipeline fitter” or “CSG jobs”… you can also do this on Google. Wij have a good list of Mining contractors ter Australia on our webstek. This is also a good place to begin your job search.

There is a process to this Corey and you have to make sure you have the right qualifications and tickets to work ter the industry. Seems like you have a lotsbestemming of practice and that’s a big plus. Age is no barrier, because what’s more significant is your capability to work ter a team and your attitude to the job. Many people who get into the industry can’t adjust to working ter a stringent environment where you are told what to do all of the time.

The enforcement of workplace health and safety is a high priority ter the industry, so you need to be aware of the risks involved. This is why a lotsbestemming of people do a mining induction course and attempt and get spil many extra courses under their stortplaats spil they can. Courses like Work Securely at Heights and http://iminco.televisiekanaal/enter-and-work-inconfined-spaces-course-mining/Come in Restricted Spaces course are very recommended to have on your resume. If you have a four wheel drive certificate of competency then this would be a real verzekeringspremie for you because you would be required to drive to the job webpagina on many occasions.

Also, you might want to consider getting your resume updated because the majority of job applications fail at the resume scanning stage of the application, where machines scan resumes for core keywords related to the job being advertised. If you don’t have thesis keywords ter your resume and/or voorkant letterteken, then you’re already limiting your opportunities. A professionally written mining/resource industry resume are well worth the investment.

Good luck with your job hunt Corey. Let us know how you go.
