Hire a Skilled Laborer

 

Before any house, building, office, stadium, hospital, school, or any structure is built, many talents collaborate and work together to bring such structures to life. It takes many hands and minds to take it from conception, execution, to completion. Skilled Laborers may be more junior members in the construction space, but they nonetheless contribute much to each project. They are trained to perform many duties like drilling, installations, and cleaning work areas, among others. 

Before starting the recruitment process for skilled laborers, hiring managers initially conduct an intake with the hiring company to learn about their specific needs. What are the necessary skills expected for skilled laborers? Is previous work experience or apprenticeship a requirement? Having a clear picture of what the job expectations are will help hiring managers create a job description. 

Considered to be the first point of communication between the hiring company and prospective candidates, a job description is a useful tool to get the attention of job seekers and encourage them to apply. Be creative in the content. Aside from listing the responsibilities and necessary qualifications, why not say something about the company values and work environment? If allowed, highlight the benefits for skilled laborers as well. Candidates usually respond well if they can visualize themselves working for the company. 

Finally, make the job announcement visible. Nowadays, recruitment processes almost always involve an online presence. Post the job vacancy on various hiring websites, company websites, social media platforms, and even online communities. Getting referrals from employees and other construction workers is another reliable way of getting candidate leads. 

 

Responsibilities of a Skilled Laborer

 

Skilled laborers perform duties that involve manual and physical labor. Depending on the construction needs and supervisor’s delegation, they can operate hand and power tools and other equipment like hammers, cement mixers, drills, pikes, and measuring equipment. Skilled laborers clean the worksite, prepare materials, move materials and other equipment from one place to another, and remove rubble or debris to prevent accidents or property damage. 

 

Skilled Laborers work independently on assigned tasks and assist more experienced team members on more complex jobs involving plumbing installations, site inspections, electrical work, and other jobs. They communicate with carpenters, plumbers, electricians, engineers, and other skilled laborers. 

 

Finally, skilled laborers follow all safety standards and precautions and wear personal protective gear as necessary. 

 

Skills and Qualifications of a Skilled Laborer

 

For interested applicants, a high school diploma or GED is required. Knowledge of terminologies and techniques used in the construction space is beneficial. The ideal candidate for skilled laborer is familiar with a variety of tools and mechanical equipment with a good understanding of safety guidelines and procedures. Because skilled laborers are assigned to do various tasks depending on the need, candidates must have good time management and critical thinking skills with keen attention to detail. Similarly, good hand-eye coordination and manual dexterity are helpful. 

 

Candidates need good interpersonal and communication skills with the ability to follow verbal and written instructions well. Lastly, candidates must have the physical strength and stamina to lift or carry heavy equipment, be on their feet for long periods, and work in outdoor spaces.
