When it comes to finding a labouring or entry level job, we know the mining and resources industry is often seen as a strong ‘magnet’. It attracts large numbers of jobseekers, some of whom with no experience, to try their hand.

Getting a start as a General Labourer or Trades Assistant (TA) is often the way newcomers begin their career in the mining industry. As a result, there is usually large numbers of applicants to screen. This can sometimes make for a frustrating experience for the job seeker and the employer.

At MPI, we don’t guarantee to help you jump the queue to land that perfect job and we’re usually working under the strict direction of our clients, most of whom do their own entry level recruitment.

What we can do though is:

  • Be up front and honest with you,
  • Give you a clear indication of your chances - be they high or low,
  • If we can’t help you right now, point you in the right direction.

Hopefully all of this improves your chances of landing that entry level job in the mining and resources industry.

We also have a great resource of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) which you might like to refer to.
