Total Earth Care is currently recruiting for a Site Supervisor and Leading Hand ideally experienced in either landscaping, carpentry or civil construction.

Consider a project carried out by the Environmental Rehabilitation and Construction team: their job often is to reconstruct a creek and surrounding drainage which has been heavily degraded by previous human impact. The team provides a stable alternative, mimicking the natural surroundings as reasonably practical, planting native flora indigenous to that community. Improving water quality for any aquatic organisms and overall reducing long-term erosion and sedimentation, a key threatening process to numerous native aquatic flora and fauna species.

We specialize in the construction of environmentally friendly seawalls, wetland rehabilitation, boardwalk and bridge construction, sustainable walking track construction, urban stream rehabilitation, degraded land remediation, revegetation and much more. If this is something you have experience in and would like to be part of a company that has been giving back to nature and the community for the past 30 years then don't hesitate and apply within TODAY!
