Skilled Labourer Hire
Hunter Labour Hire have recently celebrated their 4th birthday and have been supplying labour hire to the Sydney construction industry consistently and safely since January 2015. Our most common requests for workers have always been for general labourers and skilled labourers. However, we often find that potential clients who have never used our services before ask for clarity on the differences between general vs skilled labourers, so here it is!

- Assisting tradesmen with general duties
- Removal of debris
Defining A Skilled Labourer
In addition to all the tasks our general labourers are capable of, all our skilled labourers have extensive construction experience and often specialise in assisting a trade. They would all be extremely confident using all hand and power tools. Typical tasks for a skilled labourer include;
- Assisting different tradesman with various tasks
- Demolition jobs using power tools

Not Sure If You Need A General or Skilled Labourer?
If you need a labourer for your project and you’re unsure whether you need a general labourer, or a skilled labourer then give us a call on 02 8985 2019. Our recruitment consultants are experts in the construction field and if you can provide them with all the details of the job and scope of work, they will be able to suggest recommendations of the type of labourer you will require. Often our clients use a mix of general and skilled labourers depending on the stage the project is at and what other trades are working on site at the time.
Pricing for Skilled Labourer Sydney
We’ve spoke a bit before about the labour hire rates and what’s included in them but for labourer hire the difference in price between a general labourer and a skilled labourer/trade assistant is about $3 to $5 per hour. Our recruitment team generally find that clients who opt for a skilled labourer over a general labourer often find that although the price is more expensive, the job is completed quicker and with less questions asked, therefore, saving them money in the long run.
