Mining & Resources


Jobs within the Mining & Resources Industry

In many industries the cost to get a worker job ready is often extremely costly. The process of recruitment, assessment, obtaining medical’s, training, PPE, and in some cases remote mobilisation can be in excess of $5,000 per worker.

This is an amount that we understand is effectively lost if the wrong candidate is selected and placed on site.

Coupled with the opportunity cost of equipment down-time and idle resources; the cost of hiring the wrong candidate in some industries can easily blow out to $20,000 or more every time it happens.

That’s why at Industrial Recruitment Partners we place such a significant emphasis on the quality of recruitment, selection and retention, with the results of our focus on quality speaking for themselves, as demonstrated in the case study below:
