We are seeking talented landscapers and labourers who are driven to success, customer focused and thrive in a dynamic environment.

Let me explain about our company…

At Shape and Form we have built our reputation based on providing excellent landscaping and construction service to our clients’ residential projects for many years. We are highly respected for our attention to detail and our high standards of finished work. Because of our proven results, we are winning more work and we need some more good people.

We have a strong culture based around mutual respect for each person, their role and contribution. We enjoy seeing the end results of the effort and focus we put into a project.

We truly value our employees and we mean it when we say our people are vital to our success! We look after our people in ways that really matter to them. Our team is a respected mix of proven experience and new energy. Shape and Form provides an environment where our people are encouraged to embrace challenges, express their ideas and enjoy themselves.

As a member of the Shape and Form team, you can expect:

  • Autonomy to make decisions, manage teams and sub-contractors to deliver great results
  • 100% support to do your best work within a hard-working, collaborative team environment
  • To be part of an A-grade team where everyone pulls their weight
  • To have a sense of personal achievement in working on high quality projects
  • To develop your skills and grow your career, and be financially rewarded.



This is a new role for someone looking to build on their career as an experienced landscaper. The role is for an immediate start. While we expect you to come to us with experience in landscaping/construction, we will assist and train you in the Shape and Form way.

Your skills, attitude, and outlook on life:

If this role is right for you, you'll be a good communicator and relate well to clients and your co-workers. 

You'll have high personal standards and be self-motivated. You enjoy working to a high standard within budgets and timeframes.

You'll be the kind of person who can think on their feet, use initiative and problem solve as issues crop up. You'll be self-sufficient, but also be prepared to ask for advice and help as the need arises.

You might have worked for other commercial or domestic landscapers.  You might even have had your own landscaping or gardening business, but be looking to join a premium team.

You'll be someone who can quickly assess the situation and come up with several approaches to a problem. You're an all-rounder who has a basic understanding of business.
