10,000 Mining Jobs in Western Australia Gold Mines

New analysis of upcoming resource and infrastructure projects in Australia indicates a desperate need for workers to fill 150,000 job vacancies. The analysis comes amid new figures from the Bureau of Statistics showing while job creation across Australia was falling, the shortage in Western Australia and Queensland was still acute.

According to the Kalgoorlie Miner Pit Crew Consulting’s analysis of the Goldfields-Esperance region indicated there were 61 projects underway and a further 28 likely to begin this year.Goldfields-Esperance Workforce Development Alliance president Ron Mosby told the Kalgoorlie Miner the projects meant there would be about 10,000 job vacancies in the area in 2012. He said demand for workers was tough and in direct competition with WA’s booming northwest and Pilbara regions.

According to yesterday’s ABS data mining jobs and construction and technical professions continue to enjoy the strongest performance in the labour market.While job positions fell across Australia to 181,000 in November last year, QLD and WA bucked the trend, posting a rise in available jobs.

The non-mining states of Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania are suffering the most, with job positions across Australia falling to their lowest level since May 2010. In Victoria there were 3.9 unemployed people for every available job, with NSW close behind at 3.8.

In WA there were just 1.5 unemployed people for every vacancy. The figures were further evidence of a softening of Australia’s economy outside industries linked to the resources boom.
