Minerals Council of Australia

The Minerals Council of Australia is the leading advocate for Australia’s world class minerals industry, promoting and enhancing sustainability, profitability and competitiveness. Australia’s minerals industry is an exciting and vibrant sector, with so many different jobs and opportunities on offer for school leavers, apprentices and trainees, trades people and university graduates. The modern mining industry is much more than just big machines, hard hats and high vis. Advances in technology are making our industry safer, more competitive and more sustainable – with the adoption of technology such as robotics, drones, data science and virtual and augmented reality creating a different skills mix for our future workforce. Our miners are younger than the all-industries average, highly paid, highly skilled and totally committed to being the best in the world at what they do. They also look after the environment, their mates and put a huge amount back into their local communities. As the industry continues to evolve to meet the needs of a rapidly changing world, one thing remains constant – the need for the best people who want diverse and challenging careers to last a lifetime.
