Agriculture Jobs Available

This new job service is a partnership between Stadium, State government and a number of organisations in the agriculture industry.

Traditionally backpackers and travellers fill a number of seasonal roles across agriculture but with Corona Virus travel restrictions in place we have seen backpackers denied entry into Australia or leaving our shores for home. This has resulted in a critical number of shortages which presents an opportunity to domestic students.Stadium

How to Cash In on the Oil and Gas Jobs Boom

If  Western Australia becomes a global hub for the oil and gas industry, WA school leavers will be set for long term job growth.

Oil and Gas paperThe front page news on the West Australian about the Jobs Bonanza is no surprise to our universities and TAFE colleges that have been gearing up to support our oil and gas industries for years.

The courses are not just for those with engineering degrees. South Metro TAFE has a Diploma on Engineering at its Munster Campus

Diploma in Engineering Oil and Gas

There will be jobs for lawyers negotiating contracts and trying to negotiate the best deal for government or companies.  Murdoch has a course in Oil and Gas Law and UWA has a Mining, Energy and Natural Gas Law Centre. There will be more and new courses launched as the industry grows.

Because these jobs require high level expertise the number of scholarships will increase.

There will also be jobs in service industries like health and education, police and local government to support industry growth.

The downside is the risk to the environment that will increase as the oil and gas industry becomes more powerful. Our need for environmental scientists and carbon sequestering technologies may also be a feature of the boom.

In addition, the State Government has made a commitment to have the rolling stock built in Western Australia.

These infrastructure projects will provide jobs during the planning phase for engineers and infrastructure planners and project managers. During the construction phase there will be opportunities for apprentices and trainees to gain skills which are readily transferable to the mining industry.

Once the services are operational there will be jobs for corporate specialists in finance, HR, and IT, business and operations management,  customer service and administration.

The ongoing maintenance and management of assets will require a big team of workers.Rail3For more information about Rail Careers and a short video with people saying they have the best job in the world, go HERE.
