Traffic Force Careers

Frequently Asked Questions

A: Yes, all workers must start and finish their shifts at the depot – this means you will require reliable transport to travel to work for each shift.  Once you arrive at the depot, you will meet your crew and collect a company vehicle (as well as any equipment required for the job) before heading to site.

A: Daily hire employees are similar to full-time and part-time employees. You will still get entitlements such as annual leave and sick leave, however you are rostered on a day to day basis and don’t have “set” hours of work.  Having these leave entitlements available means you can take time off when you’re unwell or wanting to head on a holiday and know that you will still have some income coming in.

A: We are able to accommodate some limited availability for our workers, however your communication with the team about your availability will need to be communicated in a timely manner and correct in line with Traffic Force’s leave and unavailability policy.    Please keep in mind that if your availability is limited to certain days, it will impact our ability to put you on any long term/ongoing projects and may therefore affect the consistency of your rostering.  Please note that we are unable to accommodate limited hours per day, for example if you can only work 0900hrs – 1430hrs daily.  We have no control over how long shifts will run for as this is determined by our customers on ground.

A: To commence work as a traffic controller you are required to hold the following qualifications:

A: Unfortunately, you will be unable to work as a traffic controller in WA without accreditations issued in WA as each state currently has different training requirements.  We recommend contacting an RTO in WA directly such as AusQ Training, to discuss your options (this will ensure you are getting the most correct and up to date information.

A: Roles based out of our Bunbury depot currently count towards regional work as we fall in the correct postcode.  Please be sure to keep yourself up to date with any changes to regional work requirements by visiting the Department of Home Affairs website. If you are wishing to complete regional work with us, please keep in mind that you will need to relocate to Bunbury for that period of time at your own cost.

A: Workers are responsible for their own private living arrangements, this includes if you are wishing to relocate for work or are completing regional work away from where you are usually based.  Traffic Force will only provide accommodation for workers who are specifically working on a project where they cannot safely return home at the end of each shift (for example if you are based from our Maddington depot and needed to travel to Geraldton to work onsite).
