Find the best carpenters quickly and easily

Carpenters are one of the most sought-after tradespeople in Australia. They are needed more than ever with government infrastructure projects on the rise and the boom in the building and construction sector.

Carpenters play a vital role in the construction industry. Their skills are required for such things as cutting, shaping and erecting frameworks for dams, bridges and roads as well as residential and commercial buildings.

There is a vast difference between a general labourer who knows how to use a saw and a trained and experienced carpenter.

Where do you go to find the best carpenters for your projects? How do you know if they are reliable and competent, let alone with specialised skills that could assist your project’s needs and budget?

Fast Labour Hire has a large database of carpenters available across the whole of Melbourne, from the CBD to the outer suburbs.

What traits does Fast Labour Hire look for in a skilled carpenter?

The carpenters we have on our database and who we promote are able to:

  • build structures for walls, floors, doorframes, staircases and roofs
  • install windows, doors, interior trims and finishes
  • install furniture such as cabinets, wardrobes, countertops and other customised woodwork
  • repair and remould damaged woodwork
  • construct concrete pouring moulds
  • read blueprints and take instruction from verbal and written descriptions
  • instruct other labour hire colleagues on the job.

And that’s just the technical know-how. There’s more.

They must have adequate maths skills, technical skills and knowledge, pay great attention to detail and have optimal physical strength.

Their listening and language skills need to be excellent in order to take in accurate information and to communicate with co-workers, engineers, project managers and clients.

They must also display a professional attitude: turning up on time, not swapping jobs, filling timesheets punctually, being able to get on with team members and taking instructions from project managers and others with higher roles.
