In todays day and age with the economy slowly getting back on its feet, there has really only been one industry which has came through the crisis fairly much unharmed. The mining, oil and gas industry did struggle for a bit, but its now back and booming for the foreseeable future.
This brings into line getting employment. Fifo Mining Jobs is one of the main employment areas in Australia and Canada. The industries in Australia are mainly Iron Ore, Copper, Zinc, Gold and Oil and Gas. Each of these industries employ thousands of people from across all walks of Australia and New Zealand.
Jobs ranging from Labourers to Carpenters and Nurses to Cleaners. These industries need to be able to support the mining with satellite camps and towns setup all over the country. The amount of mining jobs WA has to offer are amazing and then you add the amount of jobs Queensland and South Australia has to offer on top of that, its really quite amazing.
These people can work fifo for up to 4 weeks at a time and then have a week off. It really is a lifestyle, as if you add up the breaks you are getting around 12 weeks off a year minimum. Not to bad compared to most jobs. Its not all roses though as you do miss out on a lot of things while you are away. Its just a matter of working out what works better for you.
