List of Victorian Recruitment Companies

Photo of a map of VictoriaVictoria is not a massive player in the Australian resource market, but it does have a number of recruitment companies for the industry.

You will notice that while all of these companies have offices in Melbourne or elsewhere in Victoria, most of the job listings are in Queensland and WA where the majority of the mining jobs are.

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.
