JOBS BOOM: Hiring spree at CQ coal mine

A MINING services company is on a hiring spree for recruits to work at a Central Queensland coal mine.

Thiess has launched a major recruitment drive after scoring a mining contract extension at Jellinbah Group's Lake Vermont coal mine in Dysart.

The open cut mine produces hard coking and PCI coal products.

The permanent jobs up for grabs include multiskilled and excavator operators (multiple positions), diesel fitters and auto electricians as well as a senior safety advisor, training specialist and dispatcher.

All jobs are being advertised in Mackay and coalfields.

Successful applicants will be required to work a roster of either eight days on/six days off, seven days on/seven days off, or five days on/two days off.

Employees are expected to work 12.5hr shifts across a mix of days and nights.
