The mining boom has seen a huge increase in mining jobs and the opportunity to make some big money fast. Gladstone Queensland is a popular choice for workers looking for mining jobs and has a large range of both skilled and unskilled jobs for those prepared to put in the hard work. Gladstone mining jobs include cooking, cleaning, administration, truck driving and labouring along with most trades and a range of traineeships from lab technicians to first aid officers.
A legal requirement for a majority of Gladstone mining jobs is a White Card. A White Card course is an entry level, basic safety course for the construction industry and can be used for all construction jobs throughout Australia including mining industry jobs. Narbil training offers an online White Card course that can be completed online 24 hours a day in an average of 2 to 4 hours. The course is only $55 or $39 for students, and there is no charge until after the course if passed.
Once you have attained your White Card, finding a job should be relatively easy. Gladstone mining jobs can be found on online recruitment sites, community notice boards and on the websites of major Gladstone mining companies including GLNG, Bechtel Australia, Rio Tinto, Arrow Energy and QER. There are also a number of websites dedicated to mining jobs such as www.miningjobsnoexperience.net.au, www.miningemployment.com.au and www.miningjobsonline.com.au. Gladstone mining jobs offer excellent opportunities to back packers, gap year students and travellers along with those looking for traineeships or even just a change in scenery.
