A recent article on Sourceable.net highlighted the benefits of the booming construction market for tradespeople across Australia.
Tradies in the residential, commercial and civil construction sector are benefiting from the buoyant labour market conditions.
On a seasonally adjusted basis, the number of full-time and part-time workers employed throughout the building and construction sector in Australia in May stood at 1.174 million. This number was the second highest level on record, according to data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
Statistics show that over the past four years, the construction sector added 156,000 employees and self-employed business people who make their living from the industry and the volume of opportunities is only growing.
It’s important to note that while opportunities abound and the pay is lucrative, anyone applying for work in the construction fields must be in possession of a White Card, this is to prove that they have completed mandatory General Construction Induction Safety training.
