Recruitment Drive from Australian Mining Firms Continues

In a positive development–from the Australia-inspired overseas workers’ viewpoints–notwithstanding certain stories doing the rounds that some mining firms are reducing investment and employment opportunities across some of the biggest resource businesses in Australia, certain available reports suggest that most of them actually intend to either continue the recruitment drive, or swell it further in the coming quarter.

In the month of August this year a concerned Australian Minister had reportedly said that the much-appreciated mining spurt was almost over, post one of the biggest firms from the industry observing that it was doing away with the plans for 2 enterprises believed to be worth AU$50 billion. The action of another mining behemoth–which had followed suit by declaring that it too would cut-down its expansion plans across Down Under–had further fanned such stories, and created some sort of unease throughout the industry.

But, a research done recently in this context comes to the conclusion that even as activities in the iron ore & coal segment head north–in the wake of a decrease in Chinese interest–the businesses related to shale gas, the coal-seam gas & the liquefied natural gas are facing no such issues whatsoever.

A person involved with the study reportedly said that although there may be some kind of a pause in certain domains, it is fuelled by requirements & costs, even as there still appears to be a vigorous amount of movement in the sector of resources. He added that even with the enterprises, which are being scrapped, most of the workers involved with such businesses are being re-positioned and re-involved with other productive and rewarding activities.

Post doing a survey over 2,200 Australian recruiters/firms, the research in question reveals that only 14% of the recruiters/firms has any sort of plans to cut down the recruitment drive over the coming quarter even as 23% reportedly disclosed that they are actually rather keen to boost the hiring process. The rest said that no new plans are on the cards, and the ongoing recruitment drive would continue unabated.
