  • mining

  • maritime
  • exploration
  • energy
  • transport
  • construction
  • smelting
  • refining
  • and suppliers to these industries.

Why was AMMA created?

AMMA was developed to address industry concerns about skills shortages and in response to the National Resources Sector Employment Task Force (NRSET) recommendations.

As a result, industry employers and jobs candidates now have one dedicated place where they can connect and for the first time jobs seekers can access comprehensive information online about every aspect of working in the sector.

AMMA’s Services

Workplace Relations, Human Resources and Employment Law

AMMA’s team of professional consultants and lawyers provide cost-effective advice on all workplace relations, human resources and employment law issues.

Through many collective years of resource industry knowledge and proven experience, AMMA has dealt with all types of complex workforce strategies and provided advice and assistance through each stage of the resource business cycle.

Training and Development

AMMA designs and delivers industry-specific training and workforce development courses to develop the skills and knowledge of employees in the resources and allied industries.

Experienced resources experts deliver flexible and customised courses in capital cities, regional centres and on-site for AMMA members.

AMMA is also a Registered Training Organisation (RTO).

Migration Services

Recruiting and integrating skilled workers from overseas into a business can be a complex and daunting task.

AMMA understands the specific needs of resource industry companies in relation to skilled migration and has taken a key role in lobbying for improved migration conditions that meet the needs of members.

AMMA is actively involved in industry consultations and regularly attends industry briefings held by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) to ensure clients have the latest information about government processes and regulations.

Communications and Public Affairs

AMMA’s communications and public affairs service provides access to strategists to develop and implement targeted media and communications plans for any workforce challenge.

AMMA’s experts can assist with employee engagement and communication, countering responses from external stakeholders and the development and production of campaigns.

AMMA utilises its unique position as the resource industry employer group to provide communications and public affairs specialists with extensive experience in the workplace relations environment.
