ABOUT HABITAT CREATIONS
Habitat Creations is a family-owned company specialising in large-scale urban Landscaping and Open Space Maintenance. Our teams create and maintain some of Melbourne's most beautiful and sustainable soft landscapes, including urban parks, waterways and wetlands.
We have a fantastic opportunity for an experienced landscaper to join our team in a leadership position, to help deliver an exciting pipeline of large-scale urban landscaping and water-sensitive urban design (WSUD) projects throughout Melbourne's West.
This is a hands-on role leading 2-8 landscaping and planting team members per project. You'll have the opportunity to manage and deliver important, meaningful landscape projects for our industry-leading partners that will become valuable environmental and community assets like urban wetlands, waterways and reserves.
In this role, you’ll be required to coordinate with internal and external clients and manage in-field staff members to deliver outstanding work to specification, and on time. The role would suit someone who can manage their own time on and off 'the tools' to effectively lead a team conducting a range of duties, including: soil preparation, weed control, jute matting, mulching, edging, installation of indigenous plants and advanced trees, grass reserves and other landscaping items (i.e. fencing, concreting, park bench installation).
This is your opportunity to join our team and help us transform Melbourne's West.
WHAT'S ON OFFER
At Habitat Creations our goal is to attract and retain great people, that's why we prioritise training and development, offer clear pathways for progression, and provide employees with a generous Employee Health, Wellness and Incentive Program. You'll also be offered an attractive salary package and benefits, including a paid monthly RDO! If work/life balance is important to you, you'll be pleased to hear our hours are Monday-Friday 7.30 am to 4 pm!
You love working outdoors, where the idea of four walls and a desk couldn't be further away. You enjoy hard work, and when it's knock-off time, knowing that you've spent the day doing something that matters. Sharing challenges and accomplishments with your teammates is what makes you go. You take pride in your work, but you have a bit of fun along the way. Leading and elevating the people around you is a challenge you value.
If this sounds like you, and you have extensive experience in commercial and large-scale urban landscaping, we'd love to hear from you. To be considered for this role, you'll need:
Leadership experience in large-scale commercial landscaping (or similar)
Construction White Card
First Aid Level II
Current Driver’s License and reliable transport
Small plant experience i.e. skid steer, mini excavator (preferred)
