Yes, there are many masons in Australia, with the industry well-established across the country. Australia has a range of masonry professions, including stonemasons, bricklayers, and other specialist trades that work with stone and brick materials.

Becoming a stonemason typically requires specific training, which can be obtained through apprenticeships or vocational courses. While anyone with an interest can pursue a career in stonemasonry, it requires physical dexterity, attention to detail, and a willingness to learn the craft.

This starting salary is around 50% of what a fully qualified tradesperson earns, but it increases each year of their apprenticeship as they develop their skills and take on more complex tasks.

A stonemason’s career path can vary widely. Many start as apprentices, learning the trade on the job, and can progress to becoming fully qualified stonemasons. From there, opportunities may include specializing in certain types of stonework, leading projects, or starting their own business.

Testimonials and Success Stories

I had the privilege of being a part of the Dayjob family for nearly two years as Recruitment Specialist, and it was an experience that left me with nothing but fond memories and a profound sense of gratitude. The positive working environment, fostered by our generous and appreciative boss, Joonas Russak, made every day a joy. One of the most remarkable aspects of my time at Dayjob was the wonderful relationships I built with my colleagues. From day one, there was a sense of camaraderie and support that was truly exceptional. Speaking of Joonas, it's rare to find a boss who is not only incredibly talented and experienced but also genuinely appreciative of the team's efforts. Joonas went above and beyond to recognise and reward hard work, creating an environment where every team member felt valued and motivated to give their best. His leadership style was a driving force behind our collective success. Even though I've moved on from Dayjob, the bonds I formed with my colleagues in recruitment, Ana, Mary and Keithly, and our boss, Joonas continue to thrive. The open lines of communication have not vanished, and it's heartwarming to know that the Dayjob family is still a part of my professional journey. Hope we can see each other in person soon and bond! 🙂 My time at Dayjob was more than just a job; it was an enriching experience that contributed significantly to my growth as a professional. I wholeheartedly recommend Dayjob to anyone seeking not only a thriving career but also a supportive and nurturing work environment. Thank you, Dayjob, and especially Joonas, for the 2 unforgettable years filled with camaraderie, learning, and growth. Here's to many more successes for your wonderful company! 🙂
