The Queensland Resources Council (QRC) is urging jobseekers on the hunt for a new career in 2019 to consider the lucrative options in the resources sector.
QRC Chief Executive Ian Macfarlane said the Queensland resources sector had been one of the state’s most important job creators in 2018, creating new opportunities especially in regional areas.
“The new year is a time when many people reflect on their career. Anyone looking for a well-paid, rewarding and long-term job in 2019 need look no further than the resources sector,” Macfarlane said.
“The opportunities are there for the taking. There are currently about 800 vacancies in the energy and resources sector advertised online.
