We’re always on the look out for the right people to join the team here at Cabled Up. We’ve been on the up since we started back in 2010 which is all thanks to the hard work put in each day from each member of our dedicated team, whether they be employees, contractors, management & administrative personnel or field technicians.
We like to promote a fair workplace for all employees and subcontractors, which aligns with our belief that hard work should not only be acknowledged, but rewarded.
Which is why at Cabled Up, we not only adhere to the National Employment Standards and relevant Awards, but have our own Bonus System which, unlike a profit share scheme, means that the harder you work, the more you get paid. Simple as that.
Types of Engagement & Employment
The actual type of employment or engagement for work that we offer someone will depend on the job position and subsequent requirements, which may include one or more of the following:
The usual 38 hour-a-week, Permanent or Fixed Term position, with full benefits.
Flexible (however agreed upon) hours, working less than 38 hours per week with pro-rata benefits.
Rostered hours of work, perfect for those looking for a second job, or for those wishing to work evenings and/or on weekends.
You will need an ABN and a currently registered PTY LTD company, along with a few minimum requirements (such as, particular insurance cover and vehicle type for example) which depend on the kind of work you’re engaged to carry out.
Subcontractors work under non-exclusive contractual agreements and have flexibility in the type of work they take on, the area they cover, and when they are available to take on work. This position is suited to individuals who like to be their own boss, or small companies with a team of their own employees, who wish to take on work from more than one prime contractor, and/or who only cover a small area.
Please note, subcontractor positions are not just limited to field technician or tradesperson roles.
