The construction job market in Australia continues to grow, offering exciting opportunities for Irish and UK workers looking for warm weather, a great lifestyle, the chance to earn good money and real career progression. 

Irish-owned recruitment and relocation expert, NexVentur, is seeking construction professionals of all levels for various ongoing developments. The company has offices in Australia and Ireland and fulfils recruitment contracts for many large, leading construction firms operating in all sectors.

Some of the multi-billion dollar projects on the go include the 2032 Brisbane Olympics, Sydney and Melbourne road and rail projects, and massive growth in the mining industry in Western Australia. 

“These are excellent opportunities to work on high-profile projects and to boost your career,” says Kenny Feeney, NexVentur director and co-founder. “Anyone who shows initiative in Australia has a chance of real progression there.” 

Construction jobs in Australia with sponsorship possibilities

The Northeast Link is Victoria’s largest road project and is scheduled to run until 2028. The immediate need is for senior site engineers and project engineers with three to five years’ experience. 

For professionals interested in utility infrastructure and design, NexVentur is looking to hire project managers and project engineers at various levels for an established Irish-owned company with projects across Australia. There are ample possibilities for progression and options to work in different regions, travel and develop a broader skill set. The company has a good reputation for hiring Irish workers, many of whom have been there 10 to 15 years and advanced up the ranks.  

NexVentur also has contracts with leading companies in commercial and industrial construction, civil construction, renewable energy, and more. 

For most of these projects NexVentur is seeking experienced and senior-level professionals, however there are also many openings for tradespeople and skilled labourers.
