Benefits of a General Labour Job

Employers hire general labourers all year long. Many find that they have an influx of positions available in the summer. These employers often work with a staffing agency (like Liberty Staffing) because it helps them fill positions quickly and efficiently with qualified candidates who have already been vetted by the agency. 

General labour positions allow you to stay active, work with your hands, and constantly learn new skills. A general labourer is someone who performs tasks as assigned for their employer, including maintenance, construction, debris removal, janitorial tasks, cleaning, landscaping, etc. They often work with a variety of tools. 

You also don’t have to have specialized training to become a general labourer. If you’re capable of picking up new skills, performing basic labour tasks, and working with others, you are in great shape for a general labour position. The day-to-day responsibilities of a labourer vary based on the specific industry they are employed in.
