I would not have commented, but I tried the links and they were duff "404 not found" because I am looking for a job and would have gone for it had the above not been so!

I meant to say "best of luck" to Wormster when I said that the links worked for me. I wish I could apply but age and infirmity preclude it. Hope something pans out. IP: 95.147.192.246

Wish I had...
I've applied for more jobs these last few months than I've had hot dinners, and not got so much as an interview Sad

I'd go for it in a flash if it wern't for certain commitments.

Probably not worth moving to another country for a low paid manual labour job, to be fair.

actually a lot of expats don't much care for at least some parts of what they do. I've been to quite a few places I didn't much care for. Coal mining in Central Iran was definitely interesting, and it opened certain professional doors which have been valuable since, but I was quite happy to come home.

I've done things over the years which worked out well, and things which didn't. I've done things which turned out quite differently from what I expected.

If you have genuinely had an offer to do something, and don't have any other commitments, and can afford to do it, I'd say go for it. It's important to be circumspect about this, because it's not difficult to be seriously mislead by agency recruiters who are not well informed themselves, or who are plain scammers, or don't deal with various things which you need like visas and flights; but sometimes you just have to take the plunge and worry about it later.

Well the guy in my street is a boss at a gold mine in Africa and he was telling me he uses a lot of untrained local labour. He was complaining that he has to keep them right all the time. He deals with the machinery, the loaders and haul trucks etc. He was on about me going out as a labourer to start with.

I know it sounds like an ace job and if I was a single lad I would be off like a shot but I have a family and a very pleasant life here and I wouldnt want to do what he does. Works out there for several months then comes home for a while, then back again.

that's always been the way of it with expat work. It takes a certain kind of mentality. The chaps at the Iranian job were doing 11 weeks on then 17 days home.

I've done it from time to time.

It would be good to know how many of these are on-site jobs (other than the obvious ones) and those that are not as many mining professionals work remotely (via internet) to the mine, just visiting every so often. Which may suit those who do not wish to move the Arctic circle etc..

I think it says it all in the introduction on their site - 'Inter-Consulting prefers single status people due to remote locations of customers.'
There is a shortage of mining personnel in lots of countries but the conditions are not very pleasant. Spend 3 weeks living in a tin shed on site then a short break at home, then back again.
Not my idea of a life.
If you want a job in this country, Salt Union at Winsford are advertising in IMMM magazine for a mining engineer at present.

the thing is some of the jobs in remote places pay good wages,ive been offerd a job in a cold remote place the tax is a bitch but what i save in overheads (food fuel etc) makes it worthwhile and its the doors it opens for you gone are the days in cornwall where you could tell the mine manager to stuff his job one day and start at another mine the next if the job is there go for it hell if it dont work out for me then i have seen a part of the world that not many ppl have been to ! you dont get anywhere in this game without trying!!!

scooptram's comment about opening doors is about right.

it's like the offshore oil work - about the hardest thing you ever do in that industry is get on the chopper for the first time. Once you have done it once or twice, it is a lot easier after that.
