The Australian Mines and Metals Association (AMMA) is Australia's national resource industry employer group, with a vast membership that covers employers in every allied sector of this rapidly evolving industry.

Established 94 years ago, AMMA includes member companies that directly and indirectly employ more than half a million working Australians in:
  • mining
  • hydrocarbons
  • maritime
  • exploration
  • energy
  • transport
  • construction; and
  • smelting and refining.
The Association also represents suppliers to these industries.

Membership of AMMA provides resource industry employers with:
  • the ability to influence policy and new laws impacting the industry;
  • workforce solutions: training and development, migration services and various consultancy services;
  • innovative industry driven services such as AMMA miningoilandgasjobs.com and the AWRA initiative; and
  • access to a significant and topical range of information services, industry events and conferences.
As there are significant shortages of skilled and semi-skilled labour in the Australian resource industry, AMMA launched a unique new initiative in November 2011 to assist in addressing this problem.

The AMMA miningoilandgasjobs.com website is described as "the first and only online recruitment and careers centre for the Australian resource industry."

Created by the resource sector specifically for the resource sector, the site provides both an online jobs board and an extensive Careers and Industry Guide, providing a comprehensive point of contact where employers, candidates and recruiters can connect.
