Find construction jobs and career opportunities with inclusive employers

 

The agricultural sector is one that some people may not expect to find on a job seeker's website like Diversity Jobs. However, that is only because we misunderstand agriculture. It is about more than just working the family farm that's been passed down from one generation to the next. Rather, agriculture is a highly technical business in need of trained professionals.

Construction Jobs

The need for housing, commercial structures, roads and utilities means the construction industry is one that will always need workers. It is also an industry that offers workers incredible opportunities to learn new skills that can be put to use both professionally and personally. What's more, the variety of jobs makes it easy to transition from one sort of construction to another.

Getting into the construction industry is not very hard. There's plenty of room for entry-level workers as well as professionals with advanced degrees.  Diversity Jobs can help you find construction work as a:

  • General labourer
  • Apprentice
  • Journeyman tradesman
  • Building contractor or subcontractor
  • Architect or designer
  • Project manager
  • Land developer
  • Heavy equipment operator
  • Structural engineer
  • Construction inspector.

As you know, there are different educational and training requirements depending on the type of job you take. If you already have your education and training completed, we can help you find a job that matches your qualifications. If you need a job right away but do not have specific training, you can always get started in the construction industry as a labourer, working your way up the ladder as your career progresses. Believe it or not, many a wealthy land developer got started as a general labourer in a specific trade.

Construction Job Descriptions

Construction can be divided into several subcategories: residential structures, commercial structures, marine construction, road construction, and infrastructures/utilities. In all of the subcategories there are jobs spanning the entire spectrum, from entry level to professional positions.

Entry-level positions are generally hands-on positions involving manual labour. One of the benefits of an entry-level position is that it often entails the opportunity to apprentice to a specific trade. For example, you might apprentice with a carpenter who specialises in residential construction. As you learn the carpentry trade, you progress through the system until you become a journeyman tradesman capable of working on your own.

Construction Employment Requirements

The requirements for construction employment depend on the position you are seeking. General labourers and other entry-level positions typically require no formal training of any kind. However, some basic training in the construction trade of your choice may help you land a job more quickly.

Professional positions like architects and structural engineers require formal training at a university. Specialised certification may be necessary for some fields. For example, an engineer specialising in HVAC systems would need to be certified accordingly.
