100,000 new jobs predicted for Western Australia

At least 100,000 jobs will be made available in Western Australia in the next 10 years as the state surges on with growth in its minerals and energy sector.

The workforce required for growth plans in the minerals and energy sector in Western Australia is projected to peak at 125,000 people in 2014. This is nearly an eight per cent increase on the existing workforce and many of the job openings are likely to be filled by skilled workers from overseas.

According to the State’s 2013 Growth Outlook report published by Western Australia’s Chamber of Mineral and Energy, many of the job functions would be mining engineers, process engineers and chemical engineers, and geologists and metallurgists.

Industry experts said that the outlook for the sector is positive; with up to $200 billion of new or expanding projects either underway or planned.
