Resumes for construction and trade professionals

Construction in Australia is a fast-paced and dynamic sector. Whatever your level of experience and expertise, there’s plenty of opportunity to develop a career in the construction industry.

From major road and rail projects to high rise apartments and commercial construction, there’s plenty of momentum in the industry. Thanks to Australia’s population boom, major projects are underway across the country, from Melbourne and Sydney to smaller cities like Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane.

Peak industry association Australian Industry Group (AIG) is forecasting a corresponding boost in major construction and infrastructure projects. AIG figures show growth across the construction industries, particularly in engineering and construction.

Worsening skill shortages are also reported by companies within the sector. This is due to increased infrastructure building and the size of projects already in the pipeline.

Transport and infrastructure

The transport sector covers road, rail, aviation and maritime systems. This includes the design, construction and management of numerous projects on land, sea and air.

With $55 billion in projects in the pipeline for Australia over the next 15 years, there’s enormous scope for those seeking a career in transport and infrastructure. According to Infrastructure Australia, an additional $25 billion worth of projects are already being delivered across the nation.

The infrastructure sector broadly covers civil engineering, utilities and power. Whether you want to work on local jobs in a small business team or play a specialist role in multi-billion-dollar contracts, we know how to create a resume which gets you there.

With multiple infrastructure projects planned to serve Australia’s rapidly growing population, jobs exist in major cities like Melbourne and Sydney as well as smaller capitals like Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth.

As regional centres like Victoria’s Williams Landing and Parklea-Kellyville Ridge in Greater Sydney continue to grow, the demand for infrastructure grows with them.
