Working with us

Hi I’m Rob, Director/Owner of Goodhand Building Contractors and this is Vicki my other half and responsible for Payroll, HR and Admin!  We specialise in Architectural New Builds as well as Renovations. We’re based in the Franklin area and are always on the lookout for A grade team members who have the same values of integrity, reliability and drive for excellence as we do.

Being a family based business we only hire motivated, dynamic go-getters who will help grow our business. In return we will train and grow you into awesome builders giving you a great future career in building excellence. So if you have great time keeping skills, enjoy a bit of hard yakka and take pride in your work you might just be the person we are looking for. However, if you sleep through your alarm, have a sense of entitlement, spend more time on your phone than the job at hand and come to work just to eat your lunch and get paid you’re not really going to be what we need.

Our mission is to deliver superior-quality builds, on budget and on time. While nurturing great relationships between us, our clients, our team and our sub trades. Our clients can count on our excellent craftsmanship, dependability and integrity. While we hope any applicants coming our way can help us achieve this, we also want to help you achieve your goals… We’re growing a team and culture of performance and only require people who want to be part of our journey too.

Rob and Vicki
