Due date
Wednesday, 23rd Aug 2017
We require the services of a handyman for a week a.s.a.p. to assist our builder with renovating an apartment. There is the potential for additional work but we dont know that for certain at this stage.

The skills that we are looking for include plastering and painting however the more skills and experience you have then the more work we can give to you. No need to supply any tools as our builder will provide. He will be available to supervise the work.

Hourly rate between $18 to $25 depends on the number of skills and experience.

Thank you and good luck with your application.

Kind Regards,

That's great George. Am here with Kim and he is nodding his head. Will send thru the acceptance now. We are looking forward to working with you.
Warm regards,
Hi Gary,

I can do it for 25
I agree with gary P. Read my profile. I only pay $35 an hour.
Damon read my profile. Highly skilled. 7 years ago teaching at boxhill tafe for $56 an hour.
Every tradesman has made some mistakes. Over 50 years have made quite a few. But its not the money that'd the issue with your list. Lol what sort of labours you employ. So you say you pay more than a tradesman for laboured . that don't take care . pouring concrete I storm water pipes. That not a money situation it s care or skill or supervision problem. I had a knee replacement done on the 2nd still recovering. But have done a few jobs. What people say on reseme is all the good stuff not the bad, and it not the money. What you are saying it you pay $50 an hour for labourers to damage things and not take care.
I have jobs that I can't do and have tasks listed. And won't pay anyone more than a tradesman. Lol. I have 2 days work in sth Melbourne. Nothing dramatic, simple things . also jobs in greensbrough cupboard door changing hinges and 2 new doors . any simpleton can do. But I won't pay $50 an hour. Chris T has been offered a job 12 to 24 hours. But has to know what the job is he gas not discussed money yet. Funny the job should not hard for anyone. As for a statement earlier a handyman says should be $50 an hour he won't get out of bed for less can't paint, can't plaster. Well I would not pay $50 for that.
Any one want work at $35 task on my profile.
Damon how because its a skilled labourer under supervision. How can it be a costly mistake.
And Michael what skill qualification, training do you have to expect more than a tradesman lol. On a purely labour on supervision. How much advantage is paying $400 a day for assisting a tradesman
Garry I wasn't offering. I was asking if he thought that he would get a skilled plasterer for $25 an hour. I couldn't plaster to save my life.
Oh I can't paint either
I dont know how much experience you have in the building industry Garry O but we have had spilled concrete down storm water pipes ( labourer ), dyna bolts knocked through plaster walls into the next room which knocked a $600 dollars mirror to smash ( labourer ), roof tile left off so water flooded an internal room ( labourer ), Aluminium window frame fall 2 storeys ( labourer ), glass splashback tiles scratched beyond repair ( labourer ) Pipe burst 1 hour before premier opened a building ( labourer ) concrete spilled against a new brick wall ( labourer ) shifter dropped on porcelain floor ( labourer ). The list is longer than this, albeit over a period of 30 years plus. I am not including the injuries here.

Labourers require being watched a lot, just in case and in many cases you cant expect too much at lower pay rates. Have you heard of the saying " cant get good help" ? It is true because the small pay gets you people who are learning at your / client expense. I completed an aitasker job last week where the client had an airtasker pour floor lever under lino floorboards. They got it wrong and I had to grind it, use modified grout to rebuild it, re-lay carpet and tiles. It cost him $650 for my 5 hours work.

I fully support Gary P in negotiating lower rates because he trusts his supervisor. I believe that you let the market decide on the day. Good on him for saving himself money. His terms suit me, this week. I have bid so try not to catch me out, just being honest.
