Job Briefs


Work on site and gain first hand experience alongside some of the country’s best construction brains. Labouring is a great opportunity to prove your work ethic. It can be a career start, either through an apprenticeship or various on-site training paths for gatemen, hammerhands or dogmen.


We pride ourselves on directly employing a great team of carpenters who cover the many aspects of construction from foundations and concrete to framing and finishing. We are drawn to individuals who take pride in their workmanship, are efficient and have a good awareness and knowledge of practical health and safety.


LTM has established its own Apprentice Training School where a dedicated trainer manages our 25 carpentry apprentices. On one half-day of every week you will be required to attend this off-site training school (similar to ‘block courses’ back in the day) where you can give 100% attention to your development.


This position comes in various levels such as foreman, junior project or site manager up to senior project manager, but they all play leading roles in our construction and site management teams. You will learn how to manage sites while remaining hands on. The foreman’s role is great for carpenters who want to take the next step.


Site managers are integral to our management teams, running various sites while at the same time learning from senior site managers and project managers. Just like a foreman, a site manager leads a construction team and operates at various levels depending on the size of the project.


Quantity surveyors are responsible for making sure construction costs and production are efficiently managed. We highly value our quantity surveyors and train them so they can also project manage sites.


You would oversee a project from start to finish and ensure that it is completed within time and within budget. Key attributes are an indepth understanding of the construction business and the ability to work to deadlines in a fast-paced environment.


Whether based in one of our offices or on-site you will be learning alongside some of the industry’s top quantity surveyors.
