Builders Labourer

Builder’s labourers assist tradespeople on construction sites by doing a range of manual labouring jobs. They may specialise by working with particular tradespeople as a trade’s assistant, such as bricklayer’s labourer or carpenter’s assistant.  They may also develop a career in specialist construction areas such as steelfixing, dogging, rigging, scaffolding or aspects of concreting by undertaking specific, certified training.  On completion of a job, builder’s labourers may have to apply to new sites for their next job depending on the continuity of work provided by their employer.
