Although the exact number of workers needed for the coal mine is unclear, it is expected almost 4000 operational worker jobs will be required.

Gladstone Industry Leadership Group chief executive Patrick Hastings said the project would provide attractive new job opportunities for Gladstone construction workers.

"Gladstone is in the midst of a downturn, recovering from a great peak and I hope that there will be plenty of roles at this project moving forward," Mr Hastings said.

"It's just a question for whether or not they want to do FIFO work … It's a decision every individual family makes.

"Given the environment in Gladstone at the moment, it wouldn't surprise me if plenty of our workers were keen to get onto this project.

"I think the Adani Carmichael coal mine is a huge project in global terms."

There will be electrical, metal, mechanical and building trades ripe for the picking, with plenty of other jobs in rigging and scaffolding, plant operations, truck drivers, railway workers, crane operators, labourers and trade assistants and even cleaning staff.

What you will need:

Relevant trade qualifications

OHS construction induction card (white card)

Relevant drivers licence

Elevated work platform induction

Relevant tickets for forklifts, cranes and loaders

Dogging, rigging and scaffolding tickets

Mining induction course

Medical checks

Adani will release its plans for the next year today.
