More than a Job

This month many of our stories are highlighting the bright future ahead for our coal mining industry.

The NSW Minerals Council campaign, ‘Mining Responsibly, for Today and Tomorrow’, couldn’t say it better about how important mining is, and will continue to be in the future. It’s great to see a campaign targeted at improving the real lack of understanding and acknowledgement of what mining does for Australia.

One of the most significant ways mining supports our communities is by providing diverse and highly paid careers. With an additional 24,000 workers forecasted to be required in the NSW coal industry by 2027, it’s an industry that is bursting with career opportunities.

Like most industries, technological advancements will bring about a transformation in traditional jobs in the coming years. Read more about this transformation from the Minerals Council of Australia, who are playing a leading role in identifying the changes expected in future.

What won’t change is the opportunities for our next generation to obtain successful and stimulating careers, just like the career Lauren Booth is working towards. Lauren is a Mining and Energy skills graduate and current Diploma of Electrical Engineering student who recently took home a TAFE NSW Excellence Award for Infrastructure, Energy and Construction Student of the Year.

If you want to learn more about the opportunities for a career in mining and its associated industries, then you won’t want to miss the Hunter Coal Festival’s Careers and Innovation Expo. Held at Muswellbrook RSL Club on Friday, October 21, the Expo is free and open to the public.

Take it from us – the best way to avoid work is to find a job you love.
