Brisbane-based member, Doug Brewster, has commenced monitoring advertisements for geoscientist roles on Seek.com to help better understand employment trends affecting our profession.
On 3 August 2020, Western Australia had the greatest number of vacancies (accounting for 24 of 29 exploration and mining geology positions advertised on Seek).
Available jobs were split evenly between exploration and mining positions.
By comparison, 87 mining engineer roles were being advertised, with Western Australia, Queensland and New South Wales dominating.
Sincere thanks to Doug for compiling this information that will, hopefully, become a regular news feature on the AIG web site.
