45 mining jobs you can apply for ahead of huge mining expo

MACKAY will see more than 4000 industry reps and thousands more jobseekers as it hosts the 25th Queensland Mining Expo, bringing with it hundreds of job opportunities for locals.

In a mailout, Reed Exhibitions asked: "What if you could work, play and progress your career in Australia's Town of the Year?"

"With a steady increase in demand for skilled workers, the industry outlook is more than optimistic. There has also been a growth in the full-time positions available, indicating that employers are looking to lock in scarce talent with permanent work as skills shortages appear," the email read.

"Mackay currently has over 1300 jobs available in the Mackay region in a range of sectors. The region is seeking qualified tradespeople in mining and construction industries, administration officers, engineers and a number of positions in retails, education and government on offer. QME has been working alongside our exhibitors to help promote the opportunities that are available."

Since its last expo in 2016, QME has increased in size considerably; with the 25 year milestone being "an exceedingly exciting one" for QME.

The growth has attracted the industry's key brands, eager to provide new and advanced solutions to needs of any business in the METS sector. Dedicated to innovation and progress, QME will be held at the Mackay Showgrounds across three days, 24-26 July 2018.

In the meantime, there's a stack of mining jobs on offer right now.
