The construction industry is like no other. It’s fast paced and transient and construction jobs can finish up out of the blue at any time.
Normal Channels to find work?
What’s your normal protocol in this situation? Register with a labor hire in desperation? Run to Gumtree to the trades & labor Job Section and post another ad about yourself whilst scanning all available jobs? Post your availability and credentials on Facebook hoping it gets picked up? Ring around all your mates to find out if anyone needs extra help? We'd love to hear how you tackle this issue in the comments below.
But guess what, you don't have to get stuck with down days anymore when you want to be out earning cash.
