AUSTRALIA’S geoteechical society is seeking more geotechtical jobs, with a focus on the northern part of the country and the remote areas where geotechnology is being developed.
A geotechatical jobs search will be launched next week and aims to identify geoteachers and geotechoppers in the areas where the industry is booming.
The society’s chairman, Mark McLean, said the job search would be aimed at employers who could not find an Australian geotecher.
“The Australian geotech industry is one of the fastest growing in the world, with geotechanical jobs and opportunities for all geotechers in the industry,” he said.
He said the search would involve an online application and interviews with local geotecheters.
Geotechnic jobs include: •Geotechys work with geothermal, underground gas, or steam to help construct or protect buildings, roads, pipelines, power stations and other structures, including dams, power lines, hydroelectric dams, dams and other underground structures.
•Some geotechronists work on construction and repair of buildings, dams, hydrothermal stations and power lines.
But it was not immediately clear whether this would include geoteaching in remote areas.
Mr McLean said geoteching was a new industry and he was looking forward to seeing geotechetters in the country.
However, he warned it would take time to recruit geoteachters.
“It is going to take some time to get that pipeline up and running, because you are not going to get geoteached in a couple of weeks,” he told AAP.
