South Australia based- Travel and working away from home work

  • Competitive salary and overtime on offer
  • Training and the opportunities to build a successful, diverse and challenging career

We’re Australia's largest and most innovative vegetation management company. Great people have driven our operations across Australia for over 40-yrs. We now employ over 800 team members and continue to grow. We work to protect, beautify and keep safe our communities through the provision of world-class tree care services. Our business is to value, nurture and support the people that do our work.

We’re looking for people who:

  • Support their work mates
  • Want to learn and improve everyday

The role:

At Active you'll become a valued and respected member of our tree-management team. You’ll get the opportunity to learn how to safely operate state-of-the-art equipment and machinery to dismantle and clear trees in a wide range of challenging environments within our utilities contract.

This full-time position will join our specialised machinery team which operates in-house designed and built specialist tree-removal equipment. These machines are often the only equipment that can access steep embankments, terrain or rural and remote locations. For this reason, this role does require someone who is able to travel and work away from home regularly in South Australia. 

If you’re looking for a chance to move your work outside and have an interest in operating Chainsaws, Wood Chippers and other specialist machinery then we’d like to hear from you. This is an opportunity for someone looking to start a career in tree management and we are looking for a candidate who is looking for a long-term career within the vegetation industry and wants to explore all areas of South Australia.

  • Work outdoors as part of small independent teams and experience new and challenging environments
  • When we find talent, we foster it - 90% of Active managers started their career on the tools.
