Premier People is a Business for Good lifetime partner - meaning that for every single hour you work for us, you are able to contribute to incredible Australia wide and global projects that make life changing impacts to people in need all over the planet. So, thank you for your interest in joining the Premier Team!

We seriously don't care how good you are, or how many years' experience you have on site. If you are not a team player, willing to jump in to any job and help, regardless of how qualified you are, not polite and friendly with your fellow work mates, then we don't want to hear from you! Premier People will only mobilise good reliable people that we are happy to put our name to! We would prefer to not supply, rather than send people to site with poor attitudes and work ethics.

We have an awesome team, doing great things on site, that are well recognised and appreciated, and they deserve to work with like-minded willing people. Rollers, tools and plant are heavy enough, without 'carrying' other people!

Job Summary

We are looking for skilled Scraper Technicians to join our casual work force for consistent maintenance work.

Premier People Priority Placement - Demonstrate your commitment; work ethic and reliability, and ALWAYS get first choice of upcoming work. We don't contact the masses and put bums on seats!
