AER International – Quarterly Market Report (March 2017)
Welcome to the quarterly AER International Market Report –Geology & Technical Services. 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 the Geology & Technical Services fields. It has been noticeable that from Q2 2016 to date, there has been an increase in geology vacancies quarter on quarter. During the entirety of 2014 and 2015 AER International handled only three exploration vacancies for example. This quarter alone we have six live requirements for skilled explorers.
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 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 be providing a Market Report at least once each quarter with the next one due in July 2017.
