For some time now, concern has grown over the massive shortage of skilled construction workers in Sydney. Carpentry jobs 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.
For business owners this has become increasingly frustrating and resulted in ongoing concerns that projects will fall behind due to a lack of skilled workers.
However, 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.
Solid 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
Top rates of pay
Wages have become extremely competitive and companies are now forced to pay top rates in order to retain the best guys in the industry. 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.
Long term work
Most companies will look to keep Carpenters 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.
