Who We Are
This civil contractor is well-established in the civil construction industry. They have been operating across two generations and run the business with pride and a very personable nature in terms of how they interact with their staff, celebrate special occasions and attend many scheduled social events such as the footy and races, when we can all finally enjoy these things again!
This very respected business constructs all their projects within a 30km radius of their Office which is located in the Northern Suburbs of Melbourne. This ensures work / life balance and reduces travel times so you can all get back to your families after work and enjoy some sunlight!
Due to the promotion of a Leading Hand to Foreman, we require a Leading Hand to join the business with experience in earthworks, subdivision construction, council and small road infrastructure.
This is an opportunity for a Leading Hand who truly wants to succeed in this industry. We don’t promise you the world and not deliver, we also don’t throw you in at the deep end and see if you sink or swim. We invest our time in you and create an environment whereby you work hard, but you enjoy your work and your confidence will increase day by day.
You will report to and be closely mentored by your site Supervisor as well as the Project Manager on the job in a very nurturing environment which guarantees that you will succeed in this industry and learn how to build jobs the right way.
You will gain experience in running the entire project as well as dealing with clients, training new staff and financials of the projects which usually isn’t taught to run of the mill Foreman at most other Civil Contractors.
For this particular role: we do require that you have some leading hand experience before you join so you understand most of the fundamentals across an entire construction site, not just one particular area.
Your Benefits & Salary Package
You have the opportunity to align yourself with a Civil Contractor who takes care of their staff. All of our employment is permanent and long-term with the ability to move up the ladder and progress in the business as you continue to grow with the company.
We have Construction Managers and Area Supervisors in the business who ARE NOT degree qualified separate to our Project Managers and office staff who are engineers. We believe that Supervisors who know how to build a job on site with their hands, who are great with our clients and know how to turn a dollar on these projects deserve just as much opportunity to gain senior roles within the business as engineers.
You can expect a good salary package, company vehicle (full private use), company phone & iPad and most importantly: this company embraces a friendly work/lifestyle environment with great flexibility. Our philosophy is: you work to live, not live to work!
