Carpenter Jobs in High Demand in Sydney

For some time now, concern has grown over the massive shortage of skilled construction workers in Sydney. Carpentry jobs nsw can be found at the top of this list, mainly due to a decline in apprentices coming forward to replace guys retiring from the industry and to meet the overwhelming demand for new labour across the Sydney CBD and suburban regions.

For business owners this has become increasingly frustrating and resulted in ongoing concerns that projects will fall behind due to a lack of highly skilled carpenters. Companies with a long history of successful contracts are employing talent currently seeking timber contractors across NSW.

For qualified and experienced carpenters in Sydney and the rest of Australia this means you are now in high demand and have even more reasons to land a job in your trade.

Long pipeline of work

If you are a Carpenter you no longer need to worry about chasing work in between a project finishing and a new project starting. There is a solid pipeline of projects in Sydney and a constant flow of casual, contract or permanent jobs via labour hire agencies in Sydney recruiting for building companies. Carpenters are required to perform a vast range of tasks on site.

Top rates of pay

Wages have become extremely competitive and companies are now forced to pay top rates in order to retain the industry’s ideal candidates. If you are lucky enough to secure a role on one of the larger union sites popping up all over the city you will also benefit from the extra penalty rates that these jobs pay.

Large and exciting projects

Carpenters even have the luxury of choosing which project they would prefer to work on. Whether you want the complexity of a large high end residential job or the challenge of a commercial or fit out project, contractors are seeking highly skilled carpenters with trade qualifications all across the state for large and exciting projects.

Long term work

Most companies will look for skilled carpenters to work on a long term basis and as one project reaches completion date they will be lining guys up to move with them to their next project.

Opportunity for growth

Opportunities for growth and personal development are at an all-time high. If you want a career within the construction industry there is no better time than the present to aim high and get your foot in the door with a reputable and established company. Apprentice carpenters and junior carpenters are always in demand and can quickly become trade qualified carpenters with the right experience.
