A multinational resources company is accepting applications for the next round of recruitment and no experience is necessary.
BHP is on the hunt for multiple maintenance trainees of all ages and levels of experience to help address a nationwide manpower shortage.
“Enthusiastic” applicants will complete a 12 month, full-time and paid training program at the Mackay FutureFit Academy.
APRS Media previously revealed trainees must be available to attend four day shifts (6am to 2:30pm) and then a further four afternoon and evening shifts (2:30pm to 11pm) in Mackay.
A competitive trainee salary, up to six weeks’ paid leave, and scheduled mid- and Christmas-breaks will be offered. No company paid accommodation or transport will be provided until successful completion.
$100K salary tipped
Once training is complete, graduates will be deployed to various mine sites where permanent positions, “steady” income and camp accommodation will be offered. They could each earn in excess of $100,000 a year plus a short-term incentive.
“You do not need prior on-the-job experience, just a genuine interest in working with your hands – we can teach the rest,” the company website said. “We are looking for people from a broad range of backgrounds who can bring their passion and an interest for a career in machinery maintenance.”
“You will need to be flexible and able to relocate interstate once you graduate, if needed,” it added. “Your ideas, suggestions and enthusiasm for team-work and performance will be welcomed – together we will work to achieve your personal and professional goals.”
