After an economic downturn Western Australia is once again finding its rightful place as a state bursting with resources. These resources are needed in Australia and abroad and the whole process requires talented engineers and technologists.
Western Australia’s Deputy Premier, Roger Cook, said last week: “since December 2016 we’ve seen growth of almost 40,000 jobs in Western Australia.”
The most sought after jobs are reportedly in the mining, resources, energy, and construction industries. This is according to ABC’s WA job advertisement statistical research. In fact, miners are again being imported into the state to keep up with the demand.
Cook also confirms that the Public Transport Authority, Metronet, is launching projects that will see jobs created, many of which will be for skilled workers.
