Construction Salaries – Could You Be Earning More?

Every construction business has its own requirements and guidelines for rates of pay, but some jobs in particular will always pay higher than others. Certain qualifications and training will also guarantee better employment opportunities and increased wages. We’ve put together a brief guide to the top salaries in the industry…

Jobs with the greatest amount of responsibility are often rewarded with high earnings, which is why it’s no surprise that project managers are among the highest paid employees in the field. With wages ranging from $90,000 to a huge $280,000 a year, it’s their job to efficiently plan and organise everything down to the tiniest detail with no room for error.

Those qualified to work with high risk equipment and in dangerous environments are also likely to secure greater pay rates due to the hazardous nature of their jobs. Crane, hoist and lift operators are a close second, with an average salary of $104,023. Other well-paid roles include air transport controllers, mining professionals and engineers, who can similar rates depending on their experience.

The good news is trade workers are now in higher demand than staff members that are qualified to bachelor degree level. But with the construction industry growing at an incredible rate in Australia, many of the workers searching for these jobs lack the relevant skills to apply. With a huge number of construction courses, licences and qualifications available in Queensland, it’s important to find the best instructors and trainers who can equip tradesmen with better skills than the competition.
