Calling all electricians, land surveyors, mining engineers, drillers, concrete finishers, machinists, plumbers, mechanics, welders, and other labourers. If you are a highly-skilled worker with valuable expertise to offer, chances are, an employer in Australia is looking for you. Roles like those mentioned above–and their associated skills–are generally in high demand throughout the country. And some of these particular trades are even experiencing labour shortages, meaning more opportunities for work.

As a tradesman or other labourer, working independently is an option, but it can be a challenge to find continuous employment. Full time positions are great, but may not be required in various industries. If you are a skilled worker, you should strongly consider sourcing employment via labour hire. Here are a few reasons why:

1. Labour hire allows you to continually build up your CV.

Whether you’re just starting out or you are looking to plump up your resume, the range of projects labour hire provides you with allows you to add more and more to your list of experiences. This is highly advantageous as you search for further employment. Positive references earned from previous labour hire work will also help you to enhance your portfolio. When working with a labour hire agency, this good record will assist you in being first pick for available opportunities.

2. Flexibility is the name of the game.

If a traditional schedule isn’t for you, labour hire just might be ideal. Our business clients need labour hire for projects that require flexibility and adaptation. You’ll be needed on site when your skills are required. In this fields, plans can change and projects can extend. If a (somewhat) unpredictable schedule is something you enjoy, labour hire offers the perfect circumstances.

3. Straightforward employment via your labour hire agency.

Rather than sourcing your own contracts and working with employer after employer, employment under labour hire is simple. You’re only an employee of the agency itself. This takes the hassle and headache out of inductions, tax, your paycheck, and so much more. And if you have any issues or concerns, On Line Recruitment and Labour Hire has a 24 hour number you can call. We’re always here for you.

4. Projects that make use of your skills.

Tired of working general jobs that don’t make use of your specialisations? With labour hire, you can be matched with projects that need someone just like you. As an electrician, labour hire can connect you with opportunities for electrical work. Bricklayers will be hired to lay bricks. And engineers will engineer! This approach ensures your employment gives you the sense of accomplishment and fulfillment you deserve.

5. Opportunities for growth and career success.

Not only does labour hire provide for variety (which keeps the workplace interesting and challenging), but it can be a fantastic gateway to professional success. Performing exceptionally well for a client could lead to long-term, permanent hire. You may also receive opportunities to hone your skills or develop new knowledge, which will continue to serve you as you move forward in your career. In short, labour hire helps you to become better and better.
