Applicants/ Candidates/ Employees

This will depend on the job and the employer you work for. In today’s market, we recommend all our clients pay the current market rates and as a minimum, we will always verify against any relevant award, EBA or the current market rate. In most cases, our clients pay at market or above award hourly rates.

The jobs we have change day by day. In general, we have ongoing needs for technical, trades, skilled and unskilled people in the Mining, Construction, Engineering and Logistics sectors. We service over 120 clients in these areas as the sole provider, so occasionally we are requested to source executive and management roles. For a full list of our current roles please visit our website.

You can start as soon as we can get you through our onboarding process and client approval process. This starts with submitting your resume and completing our registration process. The registration includes the completion of personal information, a medical questionnaire, and a Safety questionnaire. This can take as little time as 60 minutes. Upon assessment, we will request an interview and provision of documentation. Ideally, we would like to turn this around in 24 hours, however it will depend on your availability.

Following success at the Interview and screening stages, you will be ready for Client approval and Mobilisation.

This varies from client to client and can be as little as several hours to several days and largely depends on site and client requirements. As a minimum Mobilisation may include the supply of your banking and superannuation details, a site induction, drug and alcohol screen (where applicable) and provision of PPE (where applicable).

If you are working for RecruitWest directly we pay weekly. Pay periods end on a Sunday, processed on Wednesday at the latest and paid into your bank account on Wednesday. When the pay lands in your account is dependent on who you Bank with.

Whilst we are currently in a shortage of people in all sectors the opportunities to get in the mines are not as easy as some would promote. There are some skill sets that transition into mining well. The clients we provide to generally request we find experienced personnel in all job types and occasionally we will be requested to source suitable people to put through as trainees.

If you have no exposure to working on mine sites, we highly recommend you consider the conditions you are comfortable with. Consider the rosters, shift work, long working hours, heat, cold and isolation. We highly recommend you discuss it in length with your family and work through the positives and negatives of working away.

This is a question that is always hard to answer given there are so many variables in the decision-making processes. Whilst we seek feedback on the reasons why you have not been successful in a particular role, the most common reasons revolve around experience, qualifications or attitude.

More and more clients are focusing on attitude over aptitude, so to improve your chances of being successful we suggest focusing on good communication, presentation and being transparent and honest with employers.
