Job Description

An established civil contractor with a diverse portfolio engaging in projects in the greater Melbourne region is currently seeking a Senior Leading Hand to join their team on a permanent basis based on their flagship site in the western suburbs. My client has a reputation for delivering projects on schedule and within budget, so the time has come for the growing, once small family business to bring in new talent to grow with the company.

In the subdivisional space, core responsibilities within the role include supervising the construction activities across the site, solving arising problems from contract disputes to materials not arriving on time, maintaining safety and legality as well as liaising with relevant bodies. The ability to be able to get on the tools and train up personnel as required is essential.  

To be successful, you must possess a minimum of 5 years experience in Civil Construction with the last 3 being in a supervisory role, supported by relevant certifications. Subdivision, bulk earth works and paving experience are a must.

In exchange for your dedication to the role, you will be rewarded with a competitive package and the ability to develop your skills in a company with a tight nit, supportive culture that is renowned for its great work life balance on offer.

To apply for this position, submit your CV to or call Alexander Black on (03) 8539 4881 for a confidential discussion.
