What does general labouring include?

General labourers are skilled in a range of maintenance and labour tasks. Many have a trade background with specific skills in one area, while others are happy to work under your direction and provide a willing hand with whatever you’re doing. Here are some of the most common general labouring tasks and what you can expect:


Cleaning and maintenance

Common labouring jobs involve cleaning, especially cleaning up a worksite after tradespeople have finished. They’ll start by clearing out larger debris using a wheelbarrow and shovel, and loading it into a skip or trailer. Next, they’ll sweep the area to remove small debris, dirt, and dust. Finally, they may mop or pressure wash all suitable surfaces (depending on whether it’s inside or outside), paying special attention to any stains, mortar, or grout that’s been left behind.


Trades assistance

While labourers aren’t necessarily licensed tradespeople, they do often help out tradespeople with plumbing, carpentry, and building tasks. Carpenters or builders may get help with removing old structures, moving wood, steadying framework, and other tasks that need an extra pair of hands. Plumbers may need help with cleaning up, moving pipework, and lifting parts. In any case, the licensed tradesperson will oversee the work and ensure it is carried out safely and to a high standard.


Digging holes and trenches

General labouring often involves digging - especially by hand. Your labourer will bring their own shovel and other required tools, or you may supply the tools at the worksite. They may help dig holes for fencesdig trenches for drainage, remove stumps, or level out soil ready for landscaping.


Moving and loading 

Your labourer can help move materials from one part of your site to another or load them onto a truck or trailer. These materials could include soil, gravel, roadbase, timber, bricks, paving, garden waste, corrugated iron, rocks, plants, and even furniture. They’ll use a combination of tools, depending on the job, including shovels, forks, wheelbarrows, and gloves.

Just moved so have a washing machine and dryer to be properly installed. Also have a garage in need of clearing for installation of 2 x 2 metre long shelves, and to assist with TV/entertainment cabling in two places including NBN. Further work may be available depending on outcome of this job. Previous taskers have asked to go off the ap. I’m not looking to hire contrary to the ap rules. Trust that suits you. Looking forward to your offer.

Labour Assistance - remove/install window

Gordon VIC, Australia

10th Oct 2021

Looking for some general labour assistance in Gordon on Saturday October 16th from about 9am to 12pm. Job is to help remove a large timber window, and help install a new window. You don’t need any tools, or any “skills” with this job. The work is basically to help with the heavy lifting of the windows - about 10 meters, and helping as an “extra set of hands”. I think the job will take 3 hours or less (happy to pay for minimum of 3 hours), but would be good to have an option to extend beyond 12pm if something takes longer than expected.

Thanks very much for your assistance - excellent communication, arrived on time, very knowledgeable about the job and how to get the work done and very nice to deal with. Would definitely use Mark again in the future and would highly recommend.
