Monadelphous is a diverse and connected organisation that provides a supportive environment for the people who work for us. Attracting, developing and retaining the right people is what makes us successful. There are diverse career pathways and support along the way.

Even if you are starting out in construction and maintenance with no experience - we can help you become job ready. Most of the projects that we are involved in are based in regional Australia and supports employment of Indigenous people. These roles can range from trades assistants to professionals.

Employees who are based on a site will work to a roster and be flown home (dependant on where you were hired) based on the roster schedule. Monadelphous rosters can vary from eight days working, six days off to four weeks working, one week off. These rosters are dependent on the project requirements.
