Melbourne’s Experts in Construction Labour Hire

Construction projects require personnel with a diverse range of skills, qualifications, and experience. From Estimators and Management staff to qualified Tradesman, Brickies, Labourers, and more. Employing skilled construction staff full-time is often prohibitive to growth, as some trades may only be required for a small portion of the project.

With access to Victoria’s largest databases of contract and labour-hire workers, Essential Recruitment & Personnel Solutions can provide a qualified and experienced on-call workforce for every phase of the construction lifecycle.

We Provide Labourers With A Range of Certifications

One of the primary benefits of using Essential Personnel Services for your contract and labour hire needs is gaining access to workers with a broad range of qualifications and safety certifications.

We can provide construction labourers with a variety of certifications:

  • Working at heights
  • Asbestos
  • First aid

All labour hire staff are screened before placement with references and qualifications checked by Essential’s team of recruitment consultants.

Qualified & Experienced Contingency Staff

All our social welfare workers are vetted by a veteran recruitment team, and our contingency and emergency personnel are subject to ongoing training and assessment and compulsory compliance checks before being placed into a role. We ensure our team is kept abreast of  the latest changes to welfare guidelines and legislation.

All Essential contingency staff must meet all criteria of the jobs they are sent too.

Keep Costs Down with an On-Demand Workforce

Having access to an on-demand workforce allows businesses to scale on a per-project basis rather than carry the costs of full-time employees filling every position. As your business takes on more contracts, we supply more qualified labour personnel allowing you to focus your attention on going a robust and sustainable construction company.

  • Payroll
  • PAYG
  • Superannuation
  • Insurances
