Skills recall
Recruitment drive confirms CQ mining support sector officially back in a growth phase
Wednesday 30 August 2017  

The Central Queensland mining support sector has officially swung back into a growth phase, forcing businesses to look at ways of enticing skilled employees back to the region.

The mass exodus of skilled workers from Central Queensland at the end of Australia’s biggest construction boom has emptied the local talent pool for certain skills, and with miners making solid (and better) profits the skills shortage cycle has started again.

In response, General Manager of the Resource Industry Network in Mackay Adrienne Rourke says they have released a 60-second video to attract them back.

“Our members have told us that there has been a noticeable pick within the engineering and heavy industrial sector with many businesses now on the hunt for skilled workers.

“Their feedback has been that there are difficulties in employing the people they require, with so many skilled workers having left the region a few years ago during the downturn.”

“The whole idea is to create awareness of the region, its affordability, the great things to see and do here as well as the long-term career prospects that are available.”
