A diversified company is keen to hear from all applicants who are interested in launching a career in resources at a $570 million coal mine in Queensland’s Bowen Basin.

Wesfarmers Resources has announced its 2017 apprentice and trainee intake for the Curragh Coal Mine, 17km from Blackwater.

The company is interested in hearing from everybody, especially mature age, female and Indigenous applicants who aspire to kick start their career with an apprenticeship or traineeship. Positions are available in electrical, mechanical, boilermaking, business administration, purchasing and logistics.

Successful applicants will gain valuable experience through working with seasoned professionals, developing strong relationships, mentoring and supervised training.

Applicants will require:

  • own accommodation and transport to the site
