Hundreds of positions advertised in Qld mining
Queensland Resources Council Chief Executive Ian Macfarlane said while the resources sector was working tirelessly with government, its suppliers and communities to slow the spread of COVID-19, companies were still hiring.
“Before COVID-19, one in seven Queensland jobs – or 372,000 full-time equivalent jobs – were supported by the resources sector,” Mr Macfarlane said.
“COVID-19 and the restrictions have caused widespread job losses and underemployment.
“The resource sector is hiring and those job vacancies are across the State.”
