What Do You Need To Get A Casual Construction Job?
So if you’ve just rocked into Sydney with backpack bulging with your possessions for the foreseeable future and want to secure yourself a job then the below are the things you need to have. We have lots of casual construction jobs in Sydney so if you meet the requirements below then we want to hear from you!
While some casual jobs may not require much experience – a job in construction definitely does! Reasons for this are obvious and most importantly is safety. A job on a construction site has many dangers and experience on a site is necessary to be able to identify these and work in a safe manner. Operating power tools and working around heavy machinery must be done carefully and correctly. If you have experience and skills relevant to construction then put them on your resume but if you don’t then don’t lie, you won’t fool anyone!
Got the right experience? If you want to work in construction in Australia, then you will need to get a white card. This is required before you can carry out any construction works. You can complete the course online easily just make sure you have the correct PPE to complete the online course video. You can complete it online here.
Personal Protective Equipment
It is essential to make sure you have the correct Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in order to keep yourself safe and minimize various risks on site. As a minimum you will need:
- Hard hat
- Steel Toe Cap Boots
- Hi Vis Shirt
- Safety Glasses
- Ear Muffs / Plugs
The Right Attitude!
A job in construction is not for everyone. It can be very demanding, physical at times and long hours are not uncommon. If you are okay with this then there are rewards to be had including great wages and seeing the fruits of labour as jobs progress along.
