There are wide range of skilled labour hire positions that labourers may find themselves in are listed below and some of these jobs are listed below.
A Bricklayer’s Labourer
A brickie’s labourer is a person whom assists a trade qualified bricklayer. This is a physically demanding job. A bricklayer’s labourer can expect to lift considerable weight in the form of bricks, blocks and bags of cement, and as such they should be strong and fit individuals. They will also be required to mix cement, so knowing the correct proportions of cement and water to mix is important. They would also need to adjust this based on the temperature outside which could also cause the cement to dry too quickly. Other beneficial but not essential skills include brick cutting, and even small bit of brick laying may be required.
A Scaffolder’s Labourer
Similar to a bricklayer’s labourer a scaffolding labourer is also a highly demanding physical job and as such you cannot be afraid of hard graft. You will be required to lift scaffold from a truck and sometimes you will be in a chain passing the scaffold up to where it is needed on the platform. A person who works on scaffolding must not be afraid of heights as they will be required to work from considerable heights. It is also a requirement on some sites that the labourers hold a working at heights ticket in order to gain access. Scaffolders generally work on a number of jobs each day so having your own transport can be useful to get from job to job.

Jobs include the basic labouring duties listed above while they may also do anything from hedge trimming to lawn cutting to digging holes for garden water features.
