You’d be forgiven for thinking that mining is a dwindling industry but in fact one of Astra’s most comprehensive recruitment projects in the last five years was with Wolf Minerals, the world’s fourth largest tungsten resource and the UK’s very first metal mine for over 40 years. This mammoth mining recruitment project consisted of supporting the group with over 100 vacancies that needed to be filled and the launch of assessment centre days to whittle down suitable candidates for various roles.

Although mining is a very niche area, Astra have strong roots and expertise within Logistics, Engineering and Construction, which made this project a lot easier to fulfil. The legacy of this recruitment project has meant that Astra still advertise mining jobs, from lab technicians to pit engineers, and we are well equipped to accommodate these roles through existing databases and modern methods of sourcing candidates.

Candidates: If you are from the mining industry and you are interested in our current mining vacancies, then please do get in touch. Additionally, if you are new to the industry but it’s something that interests you then we’d like to hear from you too. Although the mining sector isn’t quite what it was used to be, Astra Recruitment have strong relations with those who are still active, meaning you will still be able to discover mining jobs on our website from time to time. Please get in touch with our team regarding our available mining jobs.

Clients: If you are company with a pending mining project on the horizon and you’d like help recruiting quality staff for an assortment of roles, then Astra Recruitment could be your saviour.

Throughout our time as a mining recruitment partner we developed an expansive candidate database, which we are confident will benefit any business looking to recruit temporary or permanent mining staff. Please get in touch should any of our mining recruitment services appeal to you and your business.
