In the first quarter of 2014 the AIG Australian Geoscientist Employment survey recorded the highest levels of unemployment and underemployment since the surveys commenced in 2008. The September quarter survey showed the first signs of improvement in employment conditions after a protracted downturn. This survey is intended to measure whether this improvement continued through to the end of 2014, setting the scene for the New Year.
With your support, The AIG Australian Geoscientist Employment Survey is now regarded as a trusted indicator of geoscientist employment specifically, and an indicator of the health of Australia’s exploration and mining sector more generally. We need your support, for a few minutes every every quarter to maintain the value of this series of surveys.
The surveys provide a snapshot of employment opportunities for Australian geoscientists based on “hard data” from a representative sample that is used in representations to government, and for use in a range of other areas by both AIG and industry representative bodies with which AIG shares the survey results.
