10,000 new workers needed in Western Australia
The increasing numberÂ of resource and infrastructure projects in Western Australia underlines a desperate need for workers to fill job vacancies.
According to theÂ Kalgoorlie MinerÂ Pit Crew Consultingâ€™s analysis of the Goldfields-Esperance region indicated there were 61 projects underway and a further 28 likely to begin this year.
Goldfields-Esperance Workforce Development Alliance president Ron Mosby told the Kalgoorlie Miner the projects meant there would be about 10,000 job vacancies in the area in 2012. This comes as new figures show that Western Australia has one of the lowest rates of unemployment in Australia with around 1.5 unemployed people for every unfilled vacancy.
