A position that is always in demand, open to anyone, and can, in certain cases, count as the specified work needed for a backpacker extend their working holiday visa. Labouring is one of Australia's most popular backpacker gigs for a reason.
But what does it mean for backpackers to be a labourer as a 417 or 462 working holiday visa holder? Let's take a closer look.
As discussed on our Labourer Jobs page, there are two main types of labourer: skilled and unskilled.
Skilled labourers (also called tradespeople) are trained in a specific discipline. Carpenters, plumbers, welders, plasterers, painters and electricians are all skilled labourers.
Unskilled labourers (also called general labourers) aren't trained in a specific discipline, and are often employed as skilled labourers' assistants. As an unskilled labourer you might be asked to fetch tools, move or unload material, clear debris, and do other simple tasks around a site or workplace.
Labourers are employed by a variety of organisations in a variety of industries. The most common labourer jobs in Sydney include:
Labourer jobs can be found across the city of Sydney. They are more concentrated in some areas than they are in others, however.
Australia's world-leading minimum wage will guarantee that you are paid at least $20 per hour, but working in certain positions or for certain organisations might see you getting paid more.
Check out our Labourer Jobs page for more info.
