The mineral sector is the UK’s largest employer in the manufacturing industry.
It’s the bedrock of construction and the built environment, from surveying, extracting and processing minerals to making building materials, and supporting many vital sectors such as agriculture, automotive, pharmaceuticals and technology, as well as global priorities such as sustainability and renewable energy.
None of it would be possible without minerals. A diverse industry means hundreds of role opportunities and locations to work in. Whatever your interests, be part of an industry that’s essential to our everyday lives.
There are lots of different ways you can get into the industry. From work experience and apprenticeships to graduate-level jobs and career changers, there are many ways to start.
