AER International – Quarterly Market Report (June 2017)
Welcome to the AER International Industry Report –Mind the Gap. I have to say that working on this report has been an extremely enjoyable and enlightening experience. Delving into a subject such as gender diversity on mine sites is always likely to throw up some quite interesting discussion points. I would like to pay tribute to Amanda Cotton who has been instrumental in researching and writing this report.
Amanda herself spent many years on sites in Africa in senior HR positions and offers a wealth of understanding and insight, as well as a diligent and committed approach, enabling her to provide us with such a thorough and well-researched report. I am really pleased that Amanda is now joining the business to assist us with specific projects and to spearhead our HR consultancy and services offering which we are launching in September. One of the key services will revolve around assisting mining firms to reach out to female talent and to improve gender diversity where desired. If you would like to know more, please contact either myself or Amanda to discuss. Our contact details are as shown overleaf.
AER International is a leading international recruitment firm dedicated entirely to the mining industry, and in particular to remote site-based roles in emerging economies. Based on many years of experience recruiting for our clients in every continent, and in multiple countries (over 35 so far) we are able to deliver in-depth, and up to date reports on the state of the labour market in this very specific environment.
As the industry continues its steady recovery and projects continue to attract funding at all stages, so we expect to see increasing demand for highly skilled people within all fields. The search for finding exceptional talent is always an interesting topic, so looking further afield to include more women within the mining industry, it will only help to strengthen the talent pool and enable companies to find the right candidate whatever the gender.
Our reports are based wholly on our own data which is constantly updated and refined. We have thousands of records and multiple data points which are instantly searchable through our CRM. The data used within this report is detailed and summarised in Section 1. ‘Our Data’.
We hope you enjoy reading the report and find it of some value in benchmarking against the market and helping to inform your decision making when considering female staff attraction. Please note that what we have presented here, is a very limited sample of what we can present through our data source. Please also note that we will provide industry analysis on a variety of subjects at least once each quarter with the next one due in October 2017.
