    Australia's Toughest Trade

    Kennards Hire has put a call out to Australia to help hunt down the toughest of trades.

    Kennards Hire has today released a number of job ads, sharing with Australia what is needed to take on the position of Australia’s toughest Trade.

    The job ads are part of their latest campaign and shines a light on the tough conditions that tradesmen and women across Australia work in day-in, day-out.  Job ads call out requirements such as ‘enduring hot summer afternoons, ‘facing heavy scrutiny by clients and neighbours’, and being ‘roped into doing cashies on Sundays for distant relatives.’

    Breaking down the ‘mullet wearing’, ‘energy drink consuming’ construction trade clichés, Kennards Hire wants Tradies to know that they understand the often grueling environment they have to put up with and know how they can help make their job easier.

    Lara Galvin, Head of Marketing, said, “Every day we hear from Tradies how tough a work site can be. The heat, the rain, the physicality of the job, the constant changes of client briefs…it’s not easy.”

    Far from a standard 9-to-5 office job, Tradies have one of the most physically challenging gigs around – regardless of whether they are a skilled chippie, sparkie, landscaper or plumber. And Kennards Hire wants to know which of the trades thinks they should have the title of the toughest.

    “It’s pretty clear to us that if you were looking through the ads, you definitely wouldn’t be applying for one of these jobs,” said Galvin.

    If you think your trade is Australia’s toughest you can vote here by completing the online poll with your name, email and your vote for the toughest trade.

    To let Tradies know they are appreciated for the hard work they do in the rain, sun and sh*t, Kennards Hire is rewarding all Tradies with 20% off selected products.
