A General Labourer attends to manual labour tasks on a building or construction project. You might be involved with a large project and be part of a bigger team or you may work on a smaller job helping out a tradesperson or a builder. Your work will depend on the project involved but you might have to do things like clear a site of rubble and debris, unload building materials or get equipment ready for work to begin.
A General Labourer will often work long days and start early in the morning. You’ll spend a lot of time outdoors and have to be ready for physically demanding work and heavy lifting. You’ll change job sites regularly and will need to have access to transport to different sites. Teamwork is crucial for a General Labourer and you’ll have to be able to follow directions well.
