AS THE re­sources sec­tor re­bounds in Cen­tral Queens­land, min­ing jobs are again the hot ticket for job-seek­ers.

The im­pact from the min­ing down­turn was felt widely across the re­gion and busi­nesses put a hold on hir­ing, but it seems the tide has turned with jobs in the min­ing sec­tor, health­care and trades high in de­mand.

Given the re­cent resur­gence in the min­ing, re­sources and en­vi­ron­ment in­dus­tries, more than 264 jobs are avail­able within those in­dus­tries around Cen­tral Queens­land.

Trades and ser­vices is an­other em­ploy­ment sec­tor on the rise with 189 jobs avail­able in­clud­ing ap­pren­tice­ships and trades as­sis­tant po­si­tions.

MJJ Con­struc­tions in Ba­nana is look­ing for a qual­i­fied car­pen­ter, Hast­ings Deer­ing is ad­ver­tis­ing for field ser­vice fit­ters in Biloela, and Yan­coal Aus­tralia is seek­ing ap­pli­ca­tions for an engi­neer­ing trades­per­son at its Yarrabee Mine in Black­wa­ter.

GPs, phar­ma­cists and med­i­cal prac­ti­tioner po­si­tions are also abun­dant in the re­gion.

A num­ber of re­gional towns are look­ing to fill po­si­tions as well, with three health­care jobs cur­rently avail­able in Ta­room and two in Biloela.

A num­ber of lo­cal and state govern­ment roles are avail­able, with jobs in Biloela and Ta­room.

Po­si­tions at Biloela Early Learn­ing Cen­tre and C&K As­so­ci­a­tion in Ta­room are all be­ing ad­ver­tised.

While some in­dus­tries are re­bound­ing, oth­ers are yet to pick up after flat-lin­ing in re­cent years.

The small num­ber of jobs ad­ver­tised for con­struc­tion across CQ would in­di­cate the in­dus­try is still strug­gling to find its feet again after tak­ing a hit in re­cent years.
