The recruitment firm says candidates with Transport and Main Roads (TMR) experience are in growing demand in the civil sector as companies act to fulfil their tender requirements.
In particular demand are project managers with 10 years of experience, site engineers with at least two years of experience and project engineers with at least five years of experience on TMR projects.
In the commercial sector, the Hays jobs report for the first six months of 2019 shows that site managers with experience working on $20m+ projects and project managers and directors who have worked on $100m+ projects are in short supply.
From a trade perspective, carpenters remain in demand, particularly those with high end fitout experience.
Hays says Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) technicians are needed. With candidates able to earn higher rates in NSW and Victoria, there is a shortage of candidates for Queensland roles.
