ENTRY LEVEL
DRILLER'S OFFSIDERS

FIFO - FULL TIME

THE WHO, THE WHAT AND THE WHERE
 
Itch have always been different; we don’t break the rules, but we definitely bend them. Many of our staff have hands on experience working on and around drill rigs…we know the ‘drill’.
 
We are on the hunt for ‘West Australia’s next top offsiders’ for two of the big dogs in the drilling industry. Complete your 3-month probation with us before going PERMANENT with one of our clients.
 
The perks of the job are absolutely second to none:

  • Earn up to $6720 in your first swing! (Are you buying a jet ski or a dirt bike first?) $110K-$120K per annum dependant on experience.

  • Entry Level and Experienced Opportunities

  • 2:1 roster, giving you plenty of time to play with your new toys!

  • Up to $3000 of training and tickets! If you bring the right attitude, Itch will help you get the tickets and qualifications you need by putting you through our training assistance program. (We’re talking HR licence, Working at heights ticket, 4WD training, first aid cert and more!)

  • Access to employee assistance and FIFO wellbeing programs.

  • Working on Pilbara mine sites with access to some of the best amenities in the mining sector! Such as a gym, En Suite rooms with Wi-Fi and TV, general store, bar, and a dining room with chefs. (No caravans or swags with these guys.)

Starting as an entry level driller’s offsider isn’t just a job, it could be the start of your career. Starting as ‘Driller’s Assistant 1’ and working through your Certificate II and III in drilling over the next 3 years. (They are a requirement to Drill on our client's Pilbara mine sites, so we will follow through with our promise!) Moving up the ranks to ‘Driller’s Assistant 2’, then ‘Trainee Driller’ and finally become a qualified Driller, typically earning $150-250k per year!
