Tasmanian Recruitment Companies

Photo of map of Tasmania on a green chalkboardTasmania isn’t really seen as a major mining state, but they actually have quite a few mines.

If you search the main job sites or follow our weekly mining job updates, you will have noticed there don’t seem to be as many mining jobs in Tasmania as other states, but there are still opportunities available.

Recruitment companies are a great place to start your search, as they understand the market and can usually point you in the right direction of the next step you need to take to get into the job you are interested in.

Here is a list of Tasmanian recruitment companies and apprenticeship providers with current job listings.

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.
