2,753 Builder jobs in Australia

A builder does exactly what the job title says – build things! You can be doing anything from repairing small maintenance tasks, to working on construction of a road, to building an extension or constructing an entire house. Once that project is finished, you'll move onto your next project, meeting clients and your team for the new job. This is a trade position and you will need to be physically fit, especially as you will need to be able to do a fair amount of heavy lifting, from equipment to materials.

Your hours of work may vary, and you will work either a day shift or a night shift, depending on your project. Weather conditions and a client's budget will also affect your work. There are a variety of training opportunities for builders, so a builder is able to specialise in an area of the construction industry, such as welding, scaffolding or carpentry.
