Groundworkers are involved in construction projects at the start and end of projects. They will be the first on a site to prepare the materials and environment for development. This includes laying foundations for the project, installing drainage and other pipework and building roads for access purposes. At the end of a project, the groundworkers return to the site to build new roads, pavements and external finishing touches to make the project accessible and appealing.
A groundworker focuses on a range of tasks and this means handling equipment properly and having excellent technique for the different tasks is important. A lot of the work will be outdoors, which can make the job challenging but deadlines need to be met which can result in overtime.
In order to become a qualified, professional groundworker you must have proven experience working on site. This can be done through work experience placements, voluntary work or apprenticeships via college or university. You will then need a NVQ or equivalent City and Guilds qualification.
There are permanent and contract opportunities available for groundwork jobs from Fusion People. Both have advantages, with permanent jobs offering stability and job security while contract work gives you more freedom over when and where you work, as well as allowing you to specialise in certain areas and skills. By choosing contract groundwork jobs, you could find periods of unemployment but the opportunity to specialise and choose what you work on is very appealing.
