A job in the resources sector offers the potential to work in challenging environments, with the opportunity for above-average salaries, rotating work rosters and FIFO arrangements.

These working conditions can provide veterans and their families with flexibility at the cost of intermittent periods apart while on shift, something many defence families might relate to.

Roles in the resources sector vary and the qualifications and experience required depends on the role, however it is likely there is a position and/or a career path for most levels. Many sites and roles will require specific tickets and licences, such as a truck licence. Most operator positions require a HR-X (truck) licence as a basic requirement, however specific training requirements will differ between companies, so it is suggested to confirm this before undertaking any training.
