Construction Worker and Machinery Operation

Does the idea of using your hands to create something appeal to you? It is an ideal profession for those who enjoy physical work rather than being desk-bound. Construction workers undertake manual labour on construction sites using hand tools. They demolish buildings, construct buildings, lay paving, drill tunnels, landscape exteriors and pour concrete. Machinery operators have specific qualifications and licences to operate pieces of machinery like bobcats and excavators on construction sites.

Jobs in this sector could include construction workers, labourers and machinery operators. They can also be quite specialist, such as excavator operators, drill operators and crane operators.

Pathway:
  • Construction induction training (White Card)
  • Ticket and licence accredited courses
  • On the job training
