The number of mining-related job vacancies in Australia is almost 40 per cent higher than 12 months ago, according to new data from DFP Recruitment Services. Job vacancies for engineers have risen by 78.5 per cent in the last year, after a sharp slump in demand for such professionals following the mining industry downturn. Meanwhile, job vacancies in Western Australia’s iron ore sector have risen by 57 per cent. Mining executives note that some staff are being poached, particularly those with specialists skills.
