The latest Skill Shortage Report released by the DEEWR indicates that the hardest to fill vacancies in Australia are in the Resource Sector. Data released this week from the Live Labour Market in Australia identifies more than 5,000 skilled workers with previous construction experience in the Resources sector.Button Text
There are already enough workers to build a project of 10 Billion Dollars in the Pilbara, including Supervisors, Engineers, electricians, fabricators, welders, QA/QC, geologists, crane operators and all other trades and professional skills.
Western Australia covers 45% of the available skills workforce and overall, 20% of the available workers reside in Regional Australia, including Pilbara, Goldfields, Hunter Valley, Mount Isa and other Fly-In Fly-Out destinations.
It’s also incredible to think that such a large chunk of the construction labour market is on the hunt for a new opportunity with 63% currently active in the Live market .
