Looking to get a start within the industry?
Our Promise is to be honest with you and advise you if we are not able to help. The vast majority of MPi's clients require us to present candidates with at least 12 months of recent Australian mining experience. Therefore, we recommend that people without Australian mining experience contact mining and contracting companies directly as they do sometimes directly employ candidates without Australian mining experience themselves.
