Founded and launched in 2009, The Resource Channel was a multi award winning employment information website, dedicated to the total Australian Resource Sector (mining, oil and gas, resource construction), offering a unique one go-to point for those already working in the industry and those looking to enter.
Custom built to reflect industry requirements, the inclusion of industry job information and professional development advice, as well as current job opportunities, meant the site was relevant to the full spectrum of industry candidates. With more than 2,000 blogs, the site represented a wealth of information for candidates and was specifically recognised for The Inside Guide (a 100+ page guide for candidates of all levels wishing to enter the industry) and the Mining, Oil & Gas Project List (a comprehensive overview of the projects underway in the Australian resource sector, together with awarded contracts and hiring employers for each project).
The Resource Channel provided a simple and centralised industry-specific platform for industry employers such as Rio Tinto, Santos, Inpex, GHD, MMG and Monadelphous to post regular employment news updates to the job market.
The site boasted more than 200 company and 18,000 individual subscribers, and attracted more than one million visitors for the period 2009 to 2013.
In November 2010, The Resource Channel received the ‘Best National Blog Website’ award at the Australian Web Awards and won ‘Best Job Board Website’ in February 2011. Read a press release here about the Best Blog win at the Australian Web Awards.
