ABOUT HABITAT CREATIONS

We have a fantastic opportunity for an experienced large-scale commercial landscaper or environmental bush crew team member, to join our team in a leadership position to help deliver an exciting pipeline of projects throughout Gippsland and Melbourne's South East.

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.

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 so you can keep your weekends to yourself!
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.
To be considered for this role, you'll need:
Experience in large-scale commercial landscaping (or similar) or an environmental bush crew
Leadership experience is preferred but not essential as you'll have a strong management team around you
Current Driver’s License and reliable transport
Construction White Card
First Aid Level II
Ability to ID and treat weeds using appropriate control methods
Experience operating a chainsaw and brush cutter with relevant ticket (highly preferred)
Small plant experience (i.e. skid steer/mini excavator) preferred but not essential
If this sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you.
