There are very few industries that you can enter into and earn an immediately lucrative pay packet without having to have experience, but the mining industry is certainly one. There are ‘mining jobs no experience necessary’ advertisements everywhere, and they are for real.
For a labourer from the suburbs who is tired of working hard for a meagre pay packed, the lure of advertisements listing mining jobs with a much more lucrative salary is understandably strong.
At present, probably the best place to nab a job in the mines with no experience under your belt would be in Western Australia, where it is clear that the rapidly expanding mining projects underway are clamouring for staff.
There is plenty of editorial circulating about mining magnate Gina Rinehart’s call to hire overseas workers to come in and fill the many jobs in mining available, many which do not require prior experience in mining work, in order to keep the mining operations in Western Australia underway.
In short, there are many no experience mining jobs up for grabs, but the most likely are mine jobs such as:
- Truck driving jobs;
- Labouring jobs;
- Sampling jobs and
- Laboratory jobs.
In most cases on these mining jobs with no experience required, the staff are expected to undergo some initial mining training to ready themselves for the role, and continually update their skills once they receive a placement with the company and commence their work in the mines.
For those who want to nab mining jobs with no experience under their belts, the best place to start is to first undertake a specific work-ready mining course. These courses can often be undertaken online – depending on the mining jobs you are looking to apply for.
