WA Resources Sector Briefing: Skills Supply - Shortages or Strategies

Perth Convention Centre
21 Mounts Bay Rd
Perth, WA 6000
Please join Fragomen immigration lawyers at our WA Resources Sector Briefing: Skills Supply - Shortages or Strategies on Wednesday, 20 March in Perth.

With predictions of 20,000 new local jobs in the resources sector to be created next financial year, how can employers in the sector in Western Australia best place themselves to ensure that skills shortages are planned for and addressed in a timely way, and avoid unsustainable cost blow outs and runaway wage growth of the last mining boom?

Please join industry experts who will discuss these issues and provide thought leadership on strategies, including:

• Predictions for skills shortages and jobs growth in the sector
• The role of WA education sector in planning for the future
• Immigration as a strategy to respond to skills shortages
• The Skilling Australians Fund levy
• The changing skill profile in the context of automation and digitalisation

The briefing will be followed by a Q&A and a sundowner.

Speakers include:
• Paul Everingham, CEO - Chamber of Minerals and Energy of Western Australia
• Raleigh Finlayson, Managing Director - Saracen Gold Mines and President of the WA School of Mines Alumni
• Andrew McCluskey, Regional Manager Western Australia - Siemens Ltd.
• Teresa Liu, Managing Partner of Australia and New Zealand - Fragomen
