Mining Job TV Episode 1 - Working in the Mining Industry
MINING JOBS TV Episode 1: Working in the mining industry Brought to you by www.miningresumes.com - Kick-start your mining career today and email us at [email protected] or call Mining Resumes on 1300 737 863 Welcome to the first episode Mining Jobs TV. My name is Matt and today I will be talking about 'working in the Australian mining industry.' Mining Jobs TV is a FREE online TV channel presenting regular episodes where we will discuss mining jobs and tips that will help you to secure a job in the industry. Mining in Australia is a significant primary industry and major contributor to the Australian economy with many different ores and minerals are mined throughout the country. The good news is that the Australian mining industry employees people across a broad range of areas from unskilled labourers to mining engineers. There are also opportunities in administrative, human resources and management positions together with numerous trade related opportunities such as Trades Assistant, Boilermakers, Carpenters, Welders, Electricians and Plumbers. As you are probably aware mining jobs are achievable yet very competitive. It is not unusual for HR Managers to receive 500 or 1000 plus resumes for an advertised vacancy ... so it's most important to ensure you have the resume professionally worded and designed to stand out from your competitors. A talented Resume Writer will be skilled in selling your skills and wording the document in a way that includes all important key words. This will give you the best chance of getting one of these jobs and they will also see you are serious about a career in mining due to the efforts you have made in presenting a polished document that clearly states what you have to offer. We highly recommended Mining Resumes to prepare your resume as they are the industry leaders in resume preparation for clients seeking jobs in the mining and oil & gas industry. They can be contacted on 1300 RESUME or have a look at their website miningresumes.com with package details and samples you look at. Many Australians want to know what type of entry level jobs are available in the mining industry that don't require a trade qualification. Both men and women are sought after by mining companies offering jobs such as Cleaner, Utilities, Trades Assistant, Service Crew, Catering, Kitchen Hand, Utilities and Laundry Work. Some of these jobs will require previous experience in areas such as cleaning, catering and hospitality but don't necessarily require previous experience working on mine sites. The main skills and attributes the mining companies are looking for include: - An understanding and commitment to workplace safety - Willingness to travel or work away from home for extended periods - Ability to complete additional courses or training - Strong work ethic and willingness to work 12 hour shifts - Flexible and adaptable approach to work - Capacity to work unsupervised and as part of a team - Punctual, reliable - High level of physical health and fitness - Willingness to undertake drug and alcohol testing as mine sites are focused on a high level of safety and you cannot be under the influence of these substances when working on site You may be wondering, how do I find out about these jobs? Mining jobs are all advertised on the careers pages of the major mining companies such as BHP, Rio Tinto and the Compass Group. You can find the companies through Google Search or email us and we will happily provide an up to date list for you. Mining jobs are also advertised on sites such as seek.com.au which is the main job search site in Australia. You can find the jobs by searching under the mining industry section and by typing key words such Dump Truck which will display all the current jobs available relating to dump truck driving. I hope that you have found this episode helpful and I look forward to talking to you again in Episode 2 where I will provide an insight into mining jobs available and where to find them. If you aren't already signed up to receive the Mining Jobs episodes, fill out your name and email address in the box at the bottom right hand side of our website at miningjobs.tv or email us at [email protected] Thanks for watching and see you next time.

Len Thong - This is our story
Australian mining means a lot to Australia. It supports our country, provides thousands of jobs - and is filled with great people. This is Len Thong's story. See more stories at: ‪http://www.thisisourstory.com.au/‬ --- Len arrived in Australia as a three-year-old refugee with no parents and little more than the clothes on his back. Australia was the end of a journey that began one night when he was a baby. That night, his parents were fatally shot whilst attempting to cross the Thai border. At the time, Len was on his mother's back. He doesn't remember that crossing or his life with his parents. When he arrived in Australia, it marked a new beginning. And with hard work, Australia has lived up to the promises of freedom and opportunity that his parents were seeking. Len started his first job at the age of fourteen and became financially self-sufficient. His dedication continued while he was at University, where he completed a Mechatronic Engineering degree and then a Masters in Finance. At that time, he was also working full time as an engineer in a mining equipment simulation company. Len's original career goal was to move into investment banking, but he was offered a role at Argyle Diamonds which led him to Rio Tinto. Len hoped that within ten years, he would hold a management position with his determination and hard work driven by a desire to give his young family a great start in life. Six years into his plan, Len has had an opportunity to work with the company in London. This has enabled him to get an insight into how Rio Tinto headquarters operates and why certain decisions are made. 'A lot of people think mining is as simple as digging things up and shipping it off,' he says. 'They don't realise how sophisticated and complex the operation is.' After a role as Management Reporting Principal for the iron ore product group within Rio Tinto, Len now supervises the group-wide implementation of its new management reporting applications. He says:
'To receive positive feedback on efficiencies as a direct result of my work, gives me a sense that what we are doing is right... the current efficiencies are expected to only be the tip of the iceberg.' These cost savings will naturally boost profits and benefit the whole economy. It makes a difference to lives -- not just in relation to the growth in the economy today, but also in the investments we rely on for the future. Len has always known the value of hard work. Through his experiences in Australia and its mining industry, he also knows the value of freedom.

Safety at work should always come first
CFMEU - Mine safety infographic Coal mining is a dangerous industry. There’s a lot that can go wrong. 3,500 coal mineworkers have died in Australia at work. That’s one cross for every worker. Thousands more have died from deadly diseases and injuries. Our safety at work should always come first. Our union has fought hard for safer conditions in our coal mines. It’s a matter of life or death. But mining bosses are increasingly replacing permanent employees with more vulnerable contract workers who have no job security. When your job is always on the line, it’s harder to speak out about your safety at work. Employers must respect our rights to a safe workplace and to provide permanent, secure employment - so that every worker can Stand Up. Speak Out. Come Home. www.standupspeakoutcomehome.org.au

Kick Starting the Careers of Indigenous Australians: Footy Means Business
Each year, the Rio Tinto Footy Means Business program provides talent and employment / job opportunities for 50 young Indigenous men from all over Australia. The program consists of two camps held in May and November, where participants are exposed to the routine of a professional AFL player, including high performance testing, training and conditioning. The young men are also introduced to potential career opportunities with AFL corporate partners. Between camps, participants are assigned a mentor and are required to undertake a personal development project in their community. Supported by the AFL, the program has set a 100% target for participants to be engaged in employment / education or training at the completion of the program. Kuiam Anu is one of the program's most talented participants and he is currently completing an AFL SportsReady traineeship at Australia Post. This is his story. VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: Kick Starting the Careers of Indigenous Australians: Footy Means Business AARON DAVEY, PROGRAM MANAGER, AFL SPORTSREADY: The AFL do some great stuff now they have elite talent pathways for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander boys coming through the system. Obviously the footy means business program is a great program, it has the AFL component and then there is the more important part which is the education and employment. KUIAM ANU, AFLSPORTSREADY TRAINEE: I’ve never heard of such indigenous camps, and where you don’t know anyone. Its nerve racking, but I guess you gain a lot of confidence and you step outside your own comfort zone and then it ends up broadening and you can become a whole different person. AARON DAVEY: It’s keeping them engaged and most of the guys hold out hopes that they can potentially get drafted. Part of our role at AFL SportsReady is to bang home the important message of, footy is not always going to be there and you are going to have to have something to fall back on. KUIAM ANU: After the camp had finished, I got home and rang up the New South Wales AFL SportsReady office and Andrew Craig there, the Indigenous Mentor there said, “Look, we really want to try to get you to work”, and then there was the Australia Post opportunity. ANDREW CRAIG, ABORIGINAL & TORRES STRAIT ISLANDER MENTOR, AFL SPORTSREADY: It’s the first ever job he has had after finishing school last year. He had a little bit of time off and now he is in a traineeship and really kicking goals. AARON DAVEY: Some of these guys aren’t employed and never had an interview in their lives so it is sort of giving them something small and hopefully they take away from that. I guess it is like anything in life, it has that ripple effect. As a person, you are extremely proud because of what you have been able to tell them and action it. ANDREW CRAIG: Obviously it (the program) gives a taste of football life and the requirements of what it takes to be a footy player. All the programs you have to go through, and your daily expectations. AARON DAVEY: That’s what the program is all about. Great kid with a great head on his shoulders and I really do see a bright future for him. Obviously he has the skill to play footy, but more importantly he could work wonders at Australia Post. I personally believe he can go onto even bigger and greater things in life. KUIAM ANU: They give you nationally recognised qualifications and you have to jump on board because it is a great opportunity to get you a career path. They (AFL SportsReady) are very willing to help and they will support you all the way. AARON DAVEY: Throughout some of these programs, some of these guys don’t really have a strong male figures in their lives and the relationships go further than the employment side of things. I find the most special things are in ten years’ time when I an walking down the street and I bump into one of the boys and they just say “ hey thanks, thanks for giving me your time and having that chat with me and trying to help me with this or that”. Like I said, that is my passion, the thing that drives me every day. It’s a great program, it’s a great initiative and great support as well from Rio Tinto. It’s been amazing.

The Rise of Casual Work
I rise tonight to speak about job security: secure jobs for hardworking Australians to ensure that workers have the confidence to spend their money and, in doing so, they provide our entrepreneurs and businesses with the confidence to invest, innovate and grow. I rise tonight to speak out against the growing trend in Australia towards casual, unsecure work—the growing trend of companies contracting out jobs that were once permanent; the growing trend of businesses replacing full-time jobs with part-time jobs to avoid providing people with benefits and conditions—and speak out against devaluing work. In doing so, I acknowledge the work of many people and many institutions, but in particular there is the incredible work that has been done by, amongst others, many of the trade unions, including the National Union of Workers. Casual jobs, short-term contracts and other insecure forms of work are on the rise. Secure jobs are getting harder and harder to find. I rise tonight to speak on behalf of the labour hire worker toiling away in a warehouse in Williamstown, performing the same task as his workmate but receiving lower pay, inferior entitlements and no job security. I rise tonight to speak on behalf of the casual homecare worker, unable to predict their weekly hours or their income. And I rise tonight to speak on behalf of the so-called independent truck driver who receives a fixed contract rate but must somehow still meet his own high and variable running costs. We on this side of the chamber are proud of our long history of fighting for fairness in Australian workplaces—fair wages, fair hours and fair conditions. In the Australian Labor Party, we are proud to stand for dignity in the workplace for everybody and to stand for sustainable jobs that support families—jobs that ensure money flows into communities, creating the confidence that drives growth. When there is less money in the pockets of regular Australians, they are not going to spend it in our small businesses, cafes or restaurants. They are not going to spend it on a new kitchen or fixing a squeak in the car. The money simply does not go around when it is not there. The number of Australians who are underemployed continues to climb. There is a hidden story. Unfortunately, in a lot of the figures we discuss in this place when we talk about the headline 'unemployment rate', we seem to ignore or forget. In 1984, only 15 per cent of all workers were casual. By 2004, this had almost doubled to 28 per cent. Today more than 35 per cent of all workers are in casual jobs. That is one-third, and it is growing trend. Casualisation certainly is a global phenomenon, but we lead the world on this front, and there are social and economic consequences that, unfortunately, we do not spend enough time in this place talking about. In the OECD, only Spain, with a higher proportion of seasonal work in agriculture, outranks Australia when it comes to casual employment. In hospitality—a growing sector—two-thirds of our employees are casual. Forty per cent of all employees in the retail industry are casuals. More than four million employees are engaged as casuals on short-term contracts in labour hire or on independent contracts. In the past, casual work was always considered a stepping stone to permanent employment. It was seen as something you did for a period of time while you nailed down some form of permanent employment. It was quite often seen as a phase that young people, students, those first entering the workplace and young workers would pass through on their way to some kind of a more secure, permanent job with rights and protections that many of us take for granted. But we are moving beyond that now. We are moving to a space where there are entire industries that are casualised—like food processing, hospitality, retail and tourism. Unless we stand up in this place and in workplaces across the country, we will not start winning back the jobs that you can count on. Employees across Australia know this. Employees in companies such as Smith's Snackfood Company in Queensland know this. Just today, staff at the company's Brisbane warehouse lodged a claim for protected industrial action. They are holding a sit-in to support the rights of the many casual workers whom they work alongside. These workers, who are peacefully occupying the lunch room today, want nothing more than fairness and equality for all the workers on site. The entire idea that there are somehow going to be two classes of workers—those who are permanent and those who are casual—working side-by-side in the same workplace, producing the same work for different pay and different conditions is simply something that they felt was unfair.
