Full job description

Your new company
Work for one of Queensland's most sought-after civil contractors! Due to new projects undertaken by the company, they now require a number of experienced excavator operators to join their already successful company.

Your new role
You will have the responsibility of working independently and part of a larger team. You will be reporting to the site manager/supervisor and working in an efficient and safe manner to reach project goals. You will be also required to perform general labouring duties to assist the team when the need arises. Duties would include but not limited to;

  • Experience working in the civil industry
  • Proven experience operating 25-35 tonne diggers
  • Communicating effectively with supervisors and leading hands
  • Daily OHS and machine maintenance reports experience
  • Ability to adapt and take initiative on a daily basis

What you'll need to succeed
Your previous experience working in a fast pace environment will be advantageous in this role. Experience working on civil construction sites, will ensure you can work with limited supervision whilst adhering to all the site safety protocols. You will be part of a broader team, so strong communication skills coupled with good time management will allow you to succeed. You must have a construction white card, and your own car and license would be advantageous. You will also need to have a valid RIIMPO320E ticket.

What you'll get in return
In return for your hard work, you’ll be receiving a generous hourly rate. You will receive the stability with a national client along with ongoing work. You will join a leader in the civil construction industry and work alongside a professional and dynamic team.
