After a review of all job postings on their platform in 2017, SEEK has found that the mining, resources and energy sector saw the largest growth.
SEEK Australia and New Zealand managing director Michael Ilczynski, spoke about the significant growth of jobs in the mining sector in 2017
“The pick-up of production activities by mining companies, especially in Western Australia, after cutbacks over the past few years, is driving job ad growth on SEEK across the mining, resources and energy industry,” Ilczynski said.
“While off a low base, this is the eleventh consecutive month (November) the mining, resources and energy industry has taken the top spot for growth in job ads on SEEK, up 54 percent year on year this November.”
“Our latest SEEK Laws of Attraction research has revealed that the top drivers for people to work in the mining, resources and energy industry in Australia are: salary/compensation, job security and work-life balance."
