Ayers Rock, Northern TerritoryThe Northern Territory has a growing mining industry and we are starting to see a higher number of job listings popping up in our weekly search for entry level mining positions.

In fact, Canada’s Fraser Institute recently name the Northern Territory Australia’s best region to mine and invest in resources.

If you are looking for a job in the NT mining industry, you may wish to get in contact with one or more of these recruitment companies.

Please Note: While we have done the research, you should too! Do not work with companies that expect you to pay them to help you find a job, and if something seems like a scam – it probably is.

  • WorkPac Group WorkPac is one of our ‘go-to’ websites when looking for entry level and trade positions each week. They have some great positions come up and this is a website that I would bookmark and check regularly for new job listings.
  • CoreStaff CoreStaff are specialists in casual and permanent mining recruitment. With a head office in Darwin, they do mention that is can be hard to place entry-level workers but that they do get these positions come up from time to time.
  • All Aspects Recruitment While All Aspects are a general recruitment company, they seem to always have a few admin/trade job listings and you can upload your resume – so that they have it on file in case a new position opens in an area you are looking to get in to.
  • ChandlerMacleod A recruitment company that mainly focuses on positions for experienced workers, there are still the odd entry level or trade position to keep an eye out for. Chandler Macleod are one of Australia’s largest providers of human resources solutions.
  • Randstad Another national recruitment agency, we have saved you the time and linked straight to the jobs in the Northern Territory. This is another website that usually features on our ‘Mining Jobs Monday’.
  • SKILLED Skilled is a labour hire company that we have found to have regular trade based job listings as well as the odd labourer or admin position.
