The Attraction and Retention Project Hub seeks to position mining and resources as industries of choice for young people making early career decisions, and for people considering transitioning from other industries.
This hub is developing, testing, and implementing a framework that supports a current and future talent pipeline for the modern resources sector, as well as the mining equipment, technology and services (METS) sector.
The project aims to:
Provide a centralised hub for potential new and existing talent to explore learning and employment options across the industry. This includes developing a suite of processes, models, tools and resources, and training products.
The hub covers elements that are crucial to securing a highly skilled, robust and future-ready workforce. These are listed below.
Establishing and testing a process for codifying capability sets at job role level, and better understanding broad industry demand for those capabilities.
Understanding and depicting pathways across the industry, focusing on diversity, flexibility and breadth of choice.
Providing upskilling and cross-skilling options for potential, new and existing workers, and establishing a mining knowledge fundamentals skill set.
Developing a model for the identification of transferable skills and capabilities, along with a mechanism for identifying candidate skills profiles that can be integrated with pathways.
Who is involved in the project?
This is the most complex of AUSMESA’s current projects and involves a wide range of partners.
Why is AUSMESA doing this?
The mining and resources sector is operating in an increasingly competitive market for skills. In order to build a talent pipeline for now and into the future, the industry needs to be positioned as an industry of choice for people at all levels of their careers. The sector has already invested significantly in its current employees and ensuring these employees have opportunities for growth and development. To maximise retention of this existing talent, it’s important that clear, long-term career pathways in the industry are visible and attainable.
