Trades & Services is one of the fastest-growing sectors in Australia. That’s all thanks to the government’s pledge to spend billions of dollars investing in major infrastructure projects over the next ten years.

However, Australia continues to encounter significant skills shortages across trade-related industries; a problem, in large, due to Australia’s ageing workforce, poor industry image, and lack of new apprenticeships and apprentices.

Sources argue that the government must deliver 300,000 skilled workers over the next five years to meet demand. So, with high competition and a limited pool of talent, where does that leave you?

At Trojan Recruitment, we specialise in finding the right candidates for your hard-to-fill trades and labour roles. We work closely with you to understand your business and culture so that we can speak authentically to qualified candidates about opportunities.

Over the years, we’ve also fostered strong relationships with skilled workers, built an enormous database of candidates and incorporated third-party talent search tools into our recruitment process to engage with passive and active candidates.

From general labourers to skilled tradespeople, we’ll find you reliable candidates that have a track record of quality work - fast.

‘Zero Tolerance’ approach to safety

All jobs are associated with some level of risk, but trades and labour roles often come with higher risk levels.

At Trojan, we have a strong commitment to send our people home safely. That’s why all of our staff undergo rigorous assessments and testing, and complete a client-specific induction prior before they arrive on a job site.

We also supply our staff with PPE (where required), engage in regular workplace inspections and toolbox talks, and have a Work Health and Safety Management System that is accredited to AS/NZS 4801 & OHSAS 18001 standards in safety.
